Yuriorkis Gamboa faced the stiffest test of the night, surprising most everyone. After a first round TKO by James Kirkland over Eromosele Albert and a fifth round TKO of Richar Gutierrez by Alfredo Angulo, Gamboa took a hard-fought unanimous, ten-round decision over Darling Jimenez. We'll have much more on the fights, plus the other weekend bouts on Sunday night.
Other quick results: Cristian Mijares won a split decision over Alexander Munoz to unify the WBC and WBA super flyweight titles, and Jorge Arce won a majority decision over David Lookmahanak to win an eliminator for that very same WBC title. The night's only real upset saw Omar Salado suffer his first defeat via fifth round TKO against Julio Cesar Miranda.
