Silva KO 5.

In lightweight (up to 61.2 kg) Mexican-American
Houske Gonzalez (14-0-1, 12 KOs), younger brother of two-time challenger Joet Gonzalez, passed the Mexican not without problems
Ivana Garcia (26-11-2, 16 KOs).

The judges unanimously gave the victory to the prospect (97-93 and twice 98-92), but the fight turned out to be much more competitive than expected, and the favorite picked up punches well.

Gonzalez UD 10.

American in the same weight
Nicholas Sullivan (6-1, 1 KOs) lost in the prospect-clash to the Mexican
Angel Vasquez (12-0, 6 KOs).

The fight frankly did not work out. Vasquez was first fined by the referee (in the 5th round), but played the episode in the next three minutes due to a knockdown. The judges unanimously gave him the victory – three times 57-55.

Vasquez UD 6.

The main card was opened by the age legend of women’s boxing. The ex-leader of the P4R rating, 41-year-old Colombian Cecilia Braekhus (37-2, 9 KOs), beat the former challenger in the first middleweight (up to 69.9 kg)
Marisa Portillo (19-16-3, 4 KOs) from Argentina.

The judges gave all the rounds to the legend – three times 60-54.
