Erick Bone, 14-1-(8), from Ecuador, made a US debut at the King Blues Club & Grill in Manhattan, New York on Thursday with a convincing fifth round tko win over Francisco “Gato” Figueroa, 20-7-1-(13), in a welterweight bout.
Figueroa landed a few heavy right handers early on but the 25 year-old visitor kept his composure to slowly break down the former contender for the rest of the bout. The end came after 2.40 of the fifth round when the sustained beating became too much to bear for Figueroa’s corner team, who threw in the towel.
