On Thursday night, DiBella Entertainment (DBE) hosted an action-packed Broadway Boxing card in front of a raucous sold-out crowd at NYC’s famed B.B. King Blues Club & Grill, sponsored by Manfredi Auto Group and Everlast, headlined by the always-exciting world-ranked super bantamweight contender Rafael Vazquez, who put on an impressive display of punching power.
In the evening’s main event, Vazquez, 122, scored an impressive TKO after four rounds over San Antonio’s Joseph Rios. Following a tame first frame, Vazquez twice dropped Rios in round two with left hooks. In the third, Vazquez was hurting Rios, 120¼, with every punch, particularly his straight rights.
