From the press release:

Tonight at the Fox Theatre in Redwood City, on the Don Chargin and Paco Presents boxing show, International Boxing Association (IBA) Super Flyweight Champion, Bruno "The Aloha Kid" Escalante (12-1-1, 6 KOs), scored a brutal 1st round knockout against veteran Lorenzo Trejo (33-29-1, 20 KOs).

Escalante used his speed and quickness while throwing punches off peculiar angels before the violent knockout happened. It was a left hook to the body followed by a right hook to the head that sent the Mexican down for the count.

"I wanted to come out tonight and put on a great show for my fans," said Escalante. "All the hard work paid off and I got my opponent out of there in the first round. The knockout was set up with good footwork and it felt great. I want to thank my team for getting me ready for this fight. I couldn't do it without them."
