The night began with an entertaining six round junior welterweight fight between undefeated Andrey Klimov, and once beaten Ty Barnett. The first two rounds were competitive as both fighters traded with neither attaining a significant edge. In the third round, Barnett began to move, which gave Klimov motivation to throw more punches. The transplanted Russian landed a series of punches punctuated by two rights hands and a solid left hook.  Barnett staggered near the ropes and went down. Barnett was up before the count of ten but looking unsteady. The referee stopped the contest at 1:12.  

   Klimov improves to 11-0, 6 KOs while Barnett is now 18-2, 12 KOs .  

    A mere ten seconds into the fight between junior middleweights Armen Ovsepyan and Arturo Brambila, it was obvious that Ovesepyan was packing some major pop. In the first round, he missed more punches than he landed, but even his whiffs made his opponent pause. Ovsepyan came into the fight having won seven of his last eight fights by knockout. The time came at 2:44 of the first round, as a sizzling right hand exploded on Brambila’s chin.    

   Ovespyan’s record rises to 11-1, 8 KOs, while Brambila drops to 9-15, 4 KOs .      

Middleweight Dominik Britsch entered his fight with Delray Raines undefeated in twenty-two professional fights. Raines, nicknamed the ‘The Rainmaker”, has nine losses on his resume. Raines won the first round with some good left hooks. Unfortunately, for Delray the hooks seemed to wake Britisch up. In round two a glancing blow floored Raines, who complained of a headbutt. As round three started, it was obvious that Raines had lost some of his energy. Britsch had found his rhythm, and was lacing Raines with lefts and rights. A pair of rights put Raines down again. He pulled himself up, but it was obvious that only his guts were keeping him from quitting. Britsch worked the body in the fourth and continued this strategy in the fifth round. He then returned to the head, landing two straight rights that put Raines down again. The official time was 2:21 seconds of round number five.    

   Britsch is now 23-0, 8 KOs while the gutsy Rains plunges to 18-10, 13 KOs .    

  Super middleweight Shawn “Manos De Oro” Estrada showed why his hands are golden by annihilating Joseph Gardner at just over a minute of the first round. Gardner tried to move and stay away from the eight pounds heavier Estrada. His jabs were short though as Estrada waited to uncoil. Estrada found his opening as Gardner attempted to escape from the corner. He loaded up his left hook and let it fly, catching Gardner flush on the jaw, causing the 35 year old to crumble to the canvas.    

  Estrada advances to 12-0, 11 KOs . Gardner is now 7-3, 1 KO.    

  Hot prospect Matt Villanueva showed why many in the boxing world are keeping an eye on him, by icing Frank Gutierrez near the end of the first round. Gutierrez started tentatively, giving Villanueva plenty of respect. The action picked-up in the middle of the round as Villanueva displayed with some excellent infighting. Villanueva knocked Gutierrez down with a straight right hand and, a few seconds later, knocked him out with a left hook.          

Villeaueva is now 6-0 with 6 knockouts. Gutierrez should consider looking for another type of work, as his record tumbles 2-10, 1 KO.      

The second 2008 Olympian, Javier Molina, easily boxed his way to a unanimous decision victory over Danny Figueroa. Molina had a bit too many skills for Figueroa, who never quit and had his moments.    

   The decision was unanimous as all three judges scored the fight 40-36.       

Molina is now 5-0, with 5 KOs . Figueroa loses for the second time as a boxer, and now stands at 3-2, 1 KO.    

  Heavyweights Bowie Topou and Manuel Quezada battled over seven uneventful rounds with Topou coming out on top. Topou started pretty well, but quickly lost focus giving Quezada a chance to get back in the fight. In the seventh round, Topou was back in charge and starting to land more forcefully. He landed a clean left hook, near the minute mark, that sent Quezada down and out.       

Topuo is now 20-1-15 KOs . Quezada has now lost three in a row and drops to 29-7 with 18 knockouts.     The announced attendance was 5300 people .
