Katie Taylor defeats Jasmine Clarkson, TKO, Round 3, 3:00: This was Taylor's first fight in the United States and she brought a decent Irish fanbase for this fight. It opened the Showtime undercard internet stream, which gives her some much-needed exposure. Taylor looked really sharp and was hitting Clarkson hard in the corner. It's hard to tell if Taylor was that good tonight or simply she was given an opponent in Clarkson who was overmatched. Clarkson had a 4-8 record heading into the fight and right from the getgo, it did not look like it would be a long fight. Clarkson had close to zero offense in the fight (nine punches landed in the three rounds) and once the third round ended, referee Charles Fitch called the fight, giving Taylor the win.
Jarrell "Big Baby" Miller defeats Gerald Washington via TKO, Round 8, 3:00: This was a battle of two behemoth heavyweight boxers, with Miller almost tipping the scales at 300 pounds at the weigh-ins. Miller's power was there from the beginning, landing a lot of clean punches upstairs throughout the entire fight. Washington had his moments, but never got into a groove and did not land a lot of his punches very cleanly. The seventh and eighth rounds had Miller do a lot of damage to Washington and Miller couldn't answer back. After eight rounds, referee Gary Rosato and Washington's corner put a stop to the fight.
