Friday Night Fights Results: Burgos Stops Vazquez in Three

Juan Carlos Burgos and Aaron Martinez notched wins on tonight's ESPN Friday Night Fights.

Juan Carlos Burgos and Cesar Vazquez both came to fight tonight on ESPN Friday Night Fights, but it was the more experienced Burgos who left with his hand raised, stopping Vazquez in the third round of an exciting fight. The official time of stoppage was 1:50 of round three.

Burgos (30-1, 20 KO) found himself in a fight early with Vazquez (25-1, 16 KO), an unheralded Mexican fighter who came in with no major fights on his record, but came to win without question. Both of the first two rounds could have gone either way, with Vazquez's aggression and Burgos' counter-punching both effective.

Vazquez was caught and rocked in the third, at which point Burgos jumped on him and pounded away until referee Tony Weeks stopped the fight. The tough Vazquez did not go down at any point, and still looked like he wanted to fight, but he wasn't complaining after the bout. It was simply a case where he got caught by a good fighter, and that fighter finished the job.

In the co-feature, Aaron Martinez won a split decision over Prenice Brewer in an eight-round welterweight bout, with just the words "split decision" booed by the audience. Martinez won on scores of 77-75, 77-75, and 75-77. Bad Left Hook had it 78-74 for Martinez, who improves to 18-1-1 (4 KO). Brewer falls to 16-3-1 (6 KO).

Also televised was Vitor Freitas-Jones, the great nephew of Acelino "Popo" Freitas, who won his pro debut via first round TKO against Rocco Espinoza.
