Main Event Co-Time

It’s time for the co-main event as Jaime Mitchell (7-0-2, 4 KOs) defends her WBA women’s bantamweight title against Carly Skelly (4-0-1).

Raymond Ford Receives Gift Sharing Ruling on Edward Vasquez

Ford def. Vasquez by split decision (96-94 Vasquez, 98-92 Ford, 97-93 Ford).

What did the two judges score for Ford? They must have either been sleeping, falling asleep, or looking at their cell phones?

Yes, Ford entered the last three rounds, but the previous seven were all Vasquez. He was the aggressor, inside Ford’s space, landing the hardest hits. You could see the relief on Ford’s face as he knew he had received a gift from the gods.

Ford leaps towards the final round

Vasquez had a big lead going into the eighth lap. Eventually, Ford started to show urgency, going with the jab, right hooks, uppercuts and not letting Vasquez get inside. Comes back to the final round.

Vast at the controls

Vasquez is fighting a big fight right now. He smashes Ford, overwhelms him, and pounds the body. He needs to stay indoors because that’s where he’s most successful.

Ford needs to start throwing bunches and not one, two shots at a time.

fight heats up

After the bell, Ford and Vasquez hit each other and had to be taken off the referee. There’s some bad blood leading to this one. Hopefully the ref issues some warnings to let Ford and Vasquez know this won’t be tolerated.

Fernando Diaz wins thrilling contest against Lorenzo Smith

Diaz won. Smith by unanimous decision (96-93, 96-93, 95-94).

Very good performance from Diaz but Smith didn’t go easy as he came back with a knockdown in the fifth and won the sixth round. But Diaz came back in the seventh finding a home with his power shots. Smith took them well and connected on his own power shots to let Diaz know he wasn’t going to leave. But the power and the activity were too great for Smith to overcome.

Diaz’s big shot sets the tone

After losing the fifth and sixth rounds, Diaz came back strong in the seventh. Power shots, power shots and more power shots. The tide has changed significantly and now it is returning to Diaz. Could we be on the verge of stopping?

Down goes Diaz

At the start of the fifth, Diaz landed a small jab and spun his head. Smith unloaded a left hook to send Diaz to the canvas.

A close mid-term fight with Smith having the momentum.

Wild end of the first

Most of the first lap was moderate until the last 45 seconds. Smith caught Diaz with a left hook. This woke Diaz up as a fight ensued until the bell rang and the referee had to separate them. Let’s see more of that.

Khalil Coe bounces back big

Coe def. O’Sullivan via TKO at 2:16 of the second round.

A right hook, a hard left to the liver and a right uppercut sent O’Sullivan stumbling to the canvas. You knew it wasn’t going to be a good ending for O’Sullivan. Coe pressed the issue one hard blow after another. A left sent O’Sullivan into the ropes and Coe closed the show with a barrage of shots that dispatched O’Sullivan one last time as the referee waved him off.

main card opener

The Cuadras vs. Rodriguez start with Khalil Coe (1-0-1, 1 KO) vs. Dylan O’Sullivan (1-0) in light heavyweight action. Big fight for Coe, as he didn’t look good at all in his last performance when he went to a majority draw with Aaron Casper.

A stop is imperative for Coe.
