On the undercard Puerto Rican prospect Jose Pedraza, 11-0-(7),scored an eighth round tko win over Tevin Farmer, 7-4-1-(1), stopping him after 0:47. Pedraza was always on the front foot, looking to pressure and that tactic paid off perfectly.Apart from a head butt in the eighth everything went to plan, Pedraza’s speed of hand and intense workrate ensured there was only one winner.
In a super middleweight Lamar Russ, 11-0-(7) stopped Jonathan Cepeda, 12-1-(11), after just 1:45 of round one. Russ pushed out the jab from the opening bell, looking to set up an attack. The plan worked perfectly when Russ landed a cracking left uppercut and then sent Cepeda to the canvas with a overhand right. Cepeda looked ok to continue but referee Mike England thought otherwise.
