The A-sides performed as expected on ESPN2 tonight as Mark DeLuca and Jason Quigley dispatched their respective foes inside this distance.
DeLuca (21-0, 13 KO) took on Ramses Agaton (20-8-3, 10 KO), who had lost five of his previous seven to the likes of Konstantin Ponomarev and Egidijus Kavaliauskas. Though DeLuca finished him with a body shot in the seventh, the highlight may have been Agaton losing two points for low blows when replays reportedly showed that he actually received said low blows.
I believe he may have experienced Abner Mares’ personal Hell.
Quigley (14-0, 11 KO), making his first appearance in over a year, had a slightly less controversial outcome thanks to a savage left hook to the body that turned Daniel Rosario Cruz (11-4, 10 KO) into a heap of pain and regret.
The other major attraction, Yamaguchi Falcao (15-0, 7 KO), defeated Richard Gutierrez (30-18-2, 19 KO) by unanimous decision despite a called knockdown in the first round. Falcao turned 30 last December and should probably be matched against real opponents sooner rather than later.
