Antonio Orozco (19-0, 15 KOs) knocked out veteran Miguel Angel Huerta (27-11, 18 KOs) in the first round of a scheduled 10-round Welterweight bout. The fight was the main event of a card presented by Golden Boy Promotions and Fox Sports 1.

Orozco began the fight a bit too recklessly, and was hurt in the first round by a left hook. Orozco’s right hand was down in the midst of a dangerous exchange that exposed his chin. Huerta tried his best to finish Orozco, but failed to prevent to the fight from going into the second round.

Orozco landed a left hook of his own in the second round that swept Huerta off of his feet. Orozco earned the technical knockdown because, according to the referee, Huerta was “done.”

In the co-main event Julian “El Camaron” Ramirez (10-0, 16 KOs) outworked and outboxed Derrick Wilson (10-5, 3 KOs) in an 8-round Featherweight fight.

In what was the biggest test of his career, Ramirez used his southpaw advantage to score points early in the fight. After letting Wilson know he had offensive abilities with a knockdown in the first round, he began to utilize his footwork.

Wilson tried to apply pressure, but Ramirez’s movement did not allow him to sit on his punches, which would have allowed him to throw his punches more powerfully.

Wilson was a dangerous fighter for most of the fight, and had his best round in the 6th. However, Ramirez came back in the beginning of the seventh with a straight left hand that put Wilson on the canvas.

Wilson spent the rest of the fight in retreat, doing his best to survive. Ramirez won via unanimous decision.

The first televised fight featured a terrible match-up between Olympian Super Heavyweight Dominic Breazeale (9-0, 9 KOs) and a terribly overweight Homer Fonseca (10-7, 3 KOs). The fight was stopped after three rounds,

Cornelius “K9” Bundrage (33-5, 19 KOs) won a unanimous decision victory over Joey Hernandez (23-2-1 13 KOs) in an IBF eliminator bout.  Bundrage earned a shot at the IBF Junior Middleweight title, a belt he lost to Ishe Smith in 2013.

Why Golden Boy Promotions refused to air this fight instead of the Super Heavyweight bout remains unclear. All judges scored the bout (118-110).
