Oscar Valdez TKO-2 Gil Garcia: Valdez, the exciting two-time Olympian, scorched Garcia as expected, scoring a knockdown in round two and then finishing it off after it was pointlessly allowed to continue. I'll guarantee Valdez with zero medals has a much better pro career than two-time gold medalist Zou Shiming.

Mikael Zewski UD-8 Damian Frias: Zewski (20-0, 15 KO) started very well, scoring an early knockdown on Frias (19-8-1, 10 KO), but the Cuban made it tougher the rest of the way. Zewski prevailed on scores of 77-74 across the board.

Matt Korobov TKO-3 Ossie Duran: I love a good Matt Korobov joke after the years-ago hype and then the, "Wait, what happened to him?" stuff that never included an upset loss or anything, but the 30-year-old middleweight prospect looked really good in this fight. Duran (28-11-2, 11 KO) had never been stopped in his 17-year pro career. This is no joke win. Hopefully, Korobov (20-0, 12 KO) gets a move on now.

Tony Lopez KO-4 Jonathan Hernandez: Lopez, 19, was fighting at home in Dallas, and scored a pretty sensational KO in this one against a guy who was there to fight.

Vanes Martirosyan TKO-2 Ryan Davis: Your usual Martirosyan mismatch, and hopefully the last we see now that Vanes is with power manager Cameron Dunkin, who has a strong and lengthy relationship with Top Rank. Martirosyan (33-0-1, 21 KO) has talent, but he often is in against guys where showcasing it is ultimately useless. He mows them down, as we know he will. He certainly held his own with Erislandy Lara (despite the fight being a bore) last year.

Other results: Kurtiss Colvin TKO-5 Angel Sigala ... John Karl Sosa KO-2 Alexis Pena.
