Super featherweight prospect Ernie Sanchez (14-3, 5 KOs) opened the evening with an eight round unanimous decision win over Coy Evans. The fight was competitive throughout, but Sanchez employed a more effective gameplan and landed the more telling blows. Evans (10-2-1, 2 KOs) was game as he landed his fair share of hard shots, but Sanchez was busier and more accurate. Evans was also felled in the third courtesy of a straight right hand. In the end, the three judges favored the General Santos City fighter by the scores of 78-73 (twice) and 77-74.
Local featherweight Alexis Hernandez scored a solid first round TKO over Farmington, New Mexico’s Jazzma Hogue. Hernandez rocked him about two minutes into the contest and then overwhelmed him until referee Jay Nady halted it. The official time was 2:20 of the round, allowing Hernandez to improve to 3-1 with his first career knockout. Hogue dipped to 2-4-1.
