Last night on ShoBox: The New Generation from the Fantasy Springs in Indio, Calif., Golden Boy prospects Omar Figueroa and Randy Caballero both picked up wins, but weren't equally impressive in the process. Figueroa blasted Ramon Ayala out in just two rounds, while Caballero struggled a bit with Jose Luis Araiza in the co-feature.
Below are quotes from the winners, as well as a photo gallery from the event.
"It surprised me when he didn’t try to box because he is a pretty tall guy. Once he started throwing power shots with me, I knew it wouldn’t last long. He had decent power so I was careful of his wild shots but I never thought the fight would make it past the third or fourth round."

"This was more of a learning experience for me. We knew he was going to try to do a couple of things in the ring and I let him do them a couple of times. That's my mistake so we're going to go back to the gym and keep working so we can come out even better next time."
