Broner vs Maidana results: Robert Easter stays perfect with first round KO, Jermain Taylor wins off TV

Tom Casino/SHOWTIME

Robert Easter knocked out Hardy Paredes in the SHO Extreme opener tonight, and Jermain Taylor and Rau'Shee Warren scored wins in off-TV prelim bouts.

Cincinnati's Robert Easter knocked out Hardy Paredes in the first round on a body shot, putting the veteran opponent down for the ten count at about 2:40 of the first round to improve his pro record to 8-0, all wins by stoppage, all inside of three rounds.

Before the SHO Extreme bouts went live, former middleweight champ Jermain Taylor returned to the ring in an empty Alamodome to face Juan Carlos Candelo in what was described as similar to a sparring matchup. Taylor (32-4-1, 20 KO) stopped the 39-year-old Candelo (32-13-4, 21 KO) in the seventh of a scheduled 10 rounds.

Also in action already tonight was another Cincinnati prospect and three-time U.S. Olympian Rau'Shee Warren, who improved to 9-0 (3 KO) with an eight-round unanimous decision win over Jose Silveira (15-10, 6 KO). Scores were 80-72 across the board for Warren.

Our live coverage continues here, with Canelo Alvarez's older brother Ricardo facing Rod Salka next.
