Ivan Redkach dominated Yakubu Amidu en route to a stoppage after six rounds in tonight's ShoBox main event from California, improving his record to 18-0 (14 KO).

Redkach scored a pair of knockdowns in the fifth round, and Amidu (21-6-2, 19 KO) looked like he was done fighting after the second, calling it a day after the round ended. Amidu also lost a point in round five for repeated low blows.

Redkach landed 45% (101/222) of his power punches, outlanding Amidu 116-81 overall. It's a solid step forward for the 28-year-old Ukrainian, who trains out of Robert Garcia's gym.

6'5" junior middleweight Alantez Fox jabbed his way to a solid win over Patrick Day in an eight-round prospect battle, winning on scores of 80-72, 78-74, and 76-76, for a majority decision. BLH had it 78-74 for Fox, who was able to dictate the range of the fight, with Day finding himself in no man's land for much of the bout. According to ShoStats, Fox landed 75 of 436 (17%) of his jabs, and 71 of 22 (32%) of his power punches, compared to 24 of 155 (15%) jabs for Day, and 72 of 163 (44%) of his power punches.

Middleweight prospect Ievgen Khytrov dismantled late substitute opponent Marcus Louishome, stopping him early in the third round. Khytrov (8-0, 8 KO) decked the 37-year-old Louishome (8-1-1, 4 KO) in the first round with about 20 seconds left, and dominated the second, too. A final stiff right hand forced the referee's hand in round three, with Louishome clearly well out of his depth against the former amateur star.
