Marlen Esparza defeated Samantha Salazar (40-36, 40-36, 40-36)

Raul Curiel defeated Jesus Sanchez via majority decision (38-38, 40-36, 40-36)

Ryan Garcia defeated Tyrone Luckey via TKO, round 2, 2:20



Raul Curiel defeated Jesus Sanchez via majority decision (38-38, 40-36, 40-36): This was Curiel's first professional fight and by no means was this supposed to be a tough fight. Sanchez is not a pushover, but few expected this fight to be very competitive. Sanchez had his fair share moments of dominance, using numerous combos and setting up with the jab throughout the fight. 

Curiel, who was a part of the 2016 Summer Olympic Games roster for Mexico, stayed composed and was the slightly more active fighter throughout the bout. By the time the fourth and final round came along, there was a sense of urgency from both fighters to win this fight. Although Sanchez lost the fight, his stock did rise from the strong performance.

Marlen Esparza defeated Samantha Salazar (40-36, 40-36, 40-36): The story of this fight is that this bout was a 4-round bout, but each round lasted three minutes instead of the traditional two-minute rounds for women's boxing matches. This fight was not really much of a spectacle, but Esparza easily won this fight after landing a wide variety of punches throughout the bout. Connecting with the jab, uppercut and overhead right, Esparza, a bronze medalist in the 2012 Summer Olympic games, now improves to 2-0 as a professional boxer.

Ryan Garcia defeated Tyrone Luckey via TKO, round 2, 2:20: Garcia quickly knocked down Luckey in the first round and from that point on, Garcia had been pummeling Luckey throughout the fight. Garcia had Luckey on the ropes towards the end of the second round. Luckey was almost going to fall through ropes and into the outside, but the referee stopped the bout. Garcia improves to 9-0 in his career.
