Frank Galarza (17-0, 11 KOs) knocked out Sheldon Moore (13-3-1, 9 KOs) in the third round of a Junior Middleweight fight at the Aviator Sports Complex in his hometown of Brooklyn, New York.
The scheduled 8-round fight headlined a ShoBox card that was promoted by DiBella Entertainment.
Galarza, 28, had a good start as he landed left and right hands, but it was a check left hook in Round 3 that wobbled Moore.
Galarza, after seeing that Moore was hurt, landed a short right hand to Moore’s body that immediately sent him to the canvas.
Moore was no longer able to continue and Galarza earned the fourth knockout of his last six fights.
Galarza improves his status in the 154-pound division and may look to face better opposition as he seeks for a world title.
The Ukrainian Middleweight boasts an astonishing 500 amateur fights and had previously stopped all of his opponents in his professional career.
Tonight, however, the 26-year-old scored his first decision win, although he dominated Coley in every round with right and left hands that were followed by slips and ducks to avoid counter punches.
In the first televised fight, Super Middleweight Sergiy Derevyanchenko (5-0, 4 KOs) overwhelmed Alan Campa (13-2, 9 KOs) en route to a fourth round stoppage.
Derevyanchenko also boasts an extensive amateur record, and it allowed him to dominate Campa in each of the opening rounds before stopping Campa with a barrage of punches in Round 4.
