Leo Santa Cruz UD10 Jose Cayetano (100-90 x3)
Santa Cruz began and ended this one-sided, rather dull contest on the front foot. The monotony was punctuated by Cayetano’s occasional switching of stance but Santa Cruz was never really tested. Cayetano landed the occasional shot as he leaned on the ropes, using them to take some of the power out of Santa Cruz’s shots but generally speaking Santa Cruz came forward and pressured without ever really threatening to get his opponent out of there. A very average but ultimately victorious featherweight debut for Santa Cruz.
Vasyl Lomachenko KO9 Gamalier Rodriguez
Rodriguez started out well with a surprisingly competitive opening round. Gradually Lomachenko began to establish his superiority, however. By the fourth round the Ukrainian was putting on a show with an array of shots from multiple angles. His balance, footwork and punch picking was superb again tonight, and Rodriguez was simply unable to keep up. Rodriguez landed some shots below the belt that eventually saw him have a point deducted after a number of warnings from the referee Earl Brown. Lomachenko hurt Rodriguez to the body, sending him to the canvas with a straight left downstairs in the 7th round. Rodriguez got up but continued to be completely outboxed. Lomachenko finished it in the 9th with a beautiful combination to the body and head. Rodriguez went down and consciously didn’t get up before the count. The fight, or exhibition, was over and Lomachenko had his win.
