ShoBox results: Hugo Centeno Jr, Braulio Santos remain undefeated

Hugo Centeno scored an ugly but wide decision over KeAndre Leatherwood, while Braulio Santos stopped Kevin Hoskins in 56 seconds last night on ShoBox: The New Generation.

Hugo Centeno Jr

"I really felt I could have done a lot more, but every time I connected with a good shot or started to get something going, he would hold on to me. The way he was grabbing hold of me it seemed at times it was more wrestling than boxing. Every time I'd land a good punch, he'd hold, or try and take me down. The worst thing that happened to me was when he got me in a choke hold.

"It was frustrating. Every time I thought I had him, he'd hold, and I definitely felt I was hurting him. In the last round I really wanted to take him out, but he just kept holding me. Overall, I did the best I could under the circumstances.

"I know I have to continue to work in the gym because I want to take it to the next level. I want to continue to step it up a notch in opposition. That I went 10 rounds in this type of fight showed how well prepared I was. My team really had me in great condition and I thank them for that."

Braulio Santos

"I certainly didn't expect it to end this fast. I was doing my work."

"He tried to get in my face during the weigh-in, talking all kinds of stuff to me. But I didn't let it get to me. I didn't care. It's what happens in the ring that counts, not what you say or do before.

"There's no extra pleasure beating him like I did. I was just doing my job. I am very, very happy, though, and ready to do it again. I just fought two weeks ago. With tonight's fast fight, I'll be ready to go in another two weeks."
