  • Diego Magdaleno TKO-3 Gilberto Sanchez Leon: Magdaleno put in another strong performance, dominating and flooring Sanchez Leon three times within just two rounds and change, stopping the veteran at 0:49 of the third round. Magdaleno (19-0, 7 KO) has shown real power in his last four fights, all stoppages, and is starting to shed the tag that he's feather-fisted. The 24-year-old Las Vegas native just totally overpowered the taller Sanchez Leon (31-9-2, 11 KO) and blasted him out with relative ease.
  • Juan Carlos Martinez SD-8 Bernabe Concepcion: Don't let the split decision or the scores (78-74, 77-75, 75-77) fool you, Concepcion was never really in this fight. I had it 79-73 for Martinez (19-12-1, 7 KO), who flat out owned the ring for the majority of every round except the eighth against Concepcion (28-5-1, 15 KO). Concepcion, 23, looked awful in this fight, his first back since a two-round war against Juanma Lopez last July. Also, I swear to God, the judge's name who scored the fight for Concepcion is Tim Cheatham. Cheatham. Cheatham.
  • Mike Lee MD-4 Gilberto Gastelum: Lee (5-0, 3 KO) won on scores of 40-36, 39-37, 38-38. I thought 38-38 was perfectly fair to be honest. 40-36 not so much. Lee has some fine offensive and I like how he targets the body, but I don't think he's got a lot of power, and his defense is still really bad. I've got nothing in the world against Mike Lee other than I don't think he's a prospect to pay serious attention to yet, but Teddy Atlas was right on the broadcast: Lee is very trainable, and Ronnie Shields is a very good trainer.
  • Cheatham.
  • Jesse Magdaleno UD-6 Jonathan Alcantara: Jesse is the 19-year-old brother of Diego, and is now 4-0 (3 KO). He won this on shutout scores.
  • Cheatham.

Indio, California (Solo Boxeo Tecate)

  • Aaron Pryor Jr MD-8 Librado Andrade: This should just about write off Andrade (29-4, 22 KO) as a top ten guy anymore. The tough Mexican looked as durable as ever, but a lack of real boxing skills has really caught up to him. At 32, he's probably past the point of no return. Andrade will have value for a long time if he stays healthy and wants to fight, though -- he's got a lot of "perfect" attributes to be a great prospect tester. Pryor (16-3, 11 KO) won on scores of 96-94 (twice) and 95-95, and you have to like that at 32 himself and still quite inexperienced, he and his team are accepting of the fact that he doesn't have a lot of time to "waste," and they're putting him in tough every time out -- his last three have been Dyah Davis, Edwin Rodriguez and now Andrade.
  • Enrique Ornelas UD-8 Hector Hernandez: Ornelas (31-7, 20 KO) got off the canvas in the first round to come back and win an unanimous 78-73 decision.

Mashantucket, Connecticut

  • Denis Grachev TKO-4 Vladine Biosse: Biosse is 28 and still really raw, but up until now his athleticism and power has carried him. In this one he met a 28-year-old Russian who put him down three times en route to the stoppage. Grachev is now 10-0-1 (6 KO), while Biosse falls to 11-1 (6 KO).
  • Elvin Ayala RTD-4 George Armenta: Ayala continues his comeback from his incredibly dumb game plan against David Lemieux last year. Ayala is now 23-5-1 (11 KO).
