By Marcelino Castillo at Ringside

First bout: Jose Vargas beat Leonard Reyes by knockout in three rounds and time of 38 seconds.

Before the fight was halted, Vargas had scored two knockdowns. The finishing blow was a straight to the body.

Second match: Aaron McKenna overcame Rolando Mendivil by a unanimous decision in 4 rounds. Scorecards: 40-36; 40-36; 40-36. 

With his long arms and combinations, McKenna was in control from the start. The Irishman improved his resume to 5-0.

Third fight: Ferdinand Kerobyan dominated José Rivera by the long route in six rounds. Scorecards: 60-54; 60-54; 60-54.

Rivera provided little opposition. Kerobyan pressed the action, scoring with straight rights and combinations.

Fourth fight: Jonathan Navarro beat Damon Allen by TKO in seven rounds and 1:33.

The fight was very intense. Navarro took command from the beginning and took the best part of the fight by connecting with heavy shots. Navarro finished with Allen after a series of right hands that sent him to the canvas and forced the referee to stop the action.

Main event: Joseph “JoJo” Diaz showed off his good boxing skills to beat the Puerto Rican Jesus Rojas by unanimous decision in twelve rounds. Scorecards: 117-111; 116-112; 115-113.

The bout was for the WBA featherweight title, but Diaz could not be crowned tonight because he failed to make weight, coming in 6 ounces over the featherweight limit. However, the victory leaves him with a foot in the door of another title shot.

The fight had a good pace. Diaz repeatedly threw punches to the side and face of Rojas who, although he went in as the champion, did not show his best card in the attack.
