In boxing, World Boxing Council (WBC) Youth Silver lightweight champion Luis “Koreano” Torres (9-0, 6 KOs) remained undefeated in the main event, winning an 8-round unanimous decision in a non-title fight against fellow Mexican, Orlando Zepeda (9-2, 2 KOs).
Another undefeated Mexican fighter, Alan “Cachorro” Solis (11-0, 6 KOs), kept his perfect record intact with an 8-round unanimous decision over Mexican featherweight Eddy “Dinamita” Valencia (15-5-6, 5 KOs). A 6-time Mexican National amateur champion, the 21-year-old Solis has successfully transitioned from a solid amateur (87-6) to promising pro prospect.
Guatemalan super middleweight sensation Lester Martinez (6-0, 6 KOs) added another notable name to his list of victims, ironically, with the same nickname, “El Matador,” stopping veteran Mexican fighter Michi Munoz (28-12-1, 19 KOs) with a vicious body shot in the opening round. Martinez, 24, turned pro last year at home in impressive style, knocking out 3-time, 2-division world champion Ricardo Mayorga (32-11-1, 26 KOs) in the second round.
Jesus “Tigrillo” Hernandez (2-1-1) took a 4-round split decision from pro-debuting Giovanny Meza (0-1) in a battle of Mexican welterweights.
The action switched to mixed martial arts and Mexican featherweight Alejandro “Toro” Flores (18-3-0) won a 3-round unanimous decision in the iKon 2 main event against Andy “Golden Boy” Perez (10-9-0), who fights out of Tucson, Arizona.
The much-anticipated pro debut of bantamweight Bella Mir (1-0-0) resulted in a 3-round unanimous decision win for the 17-year-old from Las Vegas against Atlanta’s pro-debuting Danielle Wynn (0-1-0) in the co-featured event. Bella’s father is legendary 2-time UFC heavyweight champion Frank Mir.
Las Vegas super middleweight Jonny “The Paradox” Parsons (6-2-0, iKON: 2-0-0) has found a new home in iKON. He stopped his Mexican opponent, Juan Raymon Grano Medina (6-5-1) in round one on strikes to become the only fighter to be 2-0 in iKON competition.
Mexican lightweight Daniel “Roka” Palomares (4-1-0) locked in a rear naked choke for victory by third-round submission of Anthony “Dead Game” Jimenez (5-2-1), of San Bernardino, California. The pro debut of Pete “Dean Game” Rodriguez (1-0-0) couldn’t have gone any better. The Tucson (AZ) super welterweight used an aggressive ground-and-pound attack to knockout Jorge “Halcon” Olea (2-3-0) in round one.
Mexican lightweight David “Toquinho” Briones (4-1-0) slipped in an effective armlock to submit his fellow country-man, Alejandro “Nuevo Leon, Mexico, by way of a kimura in the second round, while Houston’s Eraj Aliev (1-0-0) pulled out the third and final round to decision Eric “Rima” Olea (0-1-0), of Mexico, in a match between pro-debuting bantamweights.
