Top Rank and Bash Boxing put on another fun card from their “Fight Night” series tonight in Glendale, California; featuring ten 4-8 round bouts between up and coming prospects. The main event and co-feature were broadcast live on UniMás; with former super bantamweight champ Israel Vasquez doing guest commentary. Results below.
Joe Felix Jr. 26-1-1 (21KO) vs. Alejandro Rodriguez 21-14 (12KO)
Super Featherweights, 8 rounds
The UniMás main event between two Mexican natives was a bit of a let down after the great opener. Things started slowly as both fighters attempted to feel each other out while not taking any risks. Rodriguez moved forward and Felix Jr. tried to counter. In the third round Rodriguez was bleeding from his nose, no doubt the result from those counter shots. By the fourth round the nose was bleeding badly and appeared broken. No doubt Felix Jr. was the harder puncher, as his shots were doing more damage as the rounds progressed. Rodriguez continued to stalk but seemed late to the punch in every exchange. Felix Jr. always got off first, while moving his feet and remaining defensively responsible. Continue reading

Bethlehem, PA: The main event featured a brutal ten-round heavyweight battle between Vyacheslav “Czar” Glazkov (18-0-1, 11 KOs*) from Lugansk, Ukraine against Derric “El León” Rossy (29-9, 14 KOs) of Medford, NY.
The first round started slow with both fighters trying to feel each other out. Both guys ended the second trading very good shots, keeping the fight close. Rossy took the third round with ease. The next four rounds were close, with both fighters trading big shots. Rossy looked tired at the start of the eighth but continued to hang in there with Glazkov.
Czar suffered a cut below his left eye at the end of the eighth. Glazkov dominated Rossy in the ninth, but Rossy managed to stay on his feet until the final bell. Glazkov managed to pull out a majority decision victory with one judge scoring the bout 95-95, and the other two scoring the bout 96-94 and 98-92 in favor of Glazkov. After the fight, Czar said, “My hand was bothering me. It wasn’t broken, but it did not recover as well as I had hoped. It is not an excuse but it was still bothering me from my fight with Adamek.” Continue reading
(Photo Credit: Amanda Kwok / SHOWTIME) In a Showtime card filled with sickening mismatches in the televised portion of the card, the much bigger, stronger and more talented IBF/WBA light welterweight champion Danny Garcia (29-0, 17 KOs) showed how it’s done in crushing the little unranked 2nd tier lightweight that his adviser Al Haymon scheduled for him to fight in Rod Salka (19-4, 3 KOs) in the 2nd round tonight at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.
The fight was over after Garcia hit an already badly hurt Salka with a tremendous left hook to the head in the 2nd round that bowled him over like a bowling pin. Salka’s corner had seen enough of the mismatch at that point and threw in the white towl to have he fight stopped. Garcia also knocked Salka down two other times in the 2nd round. Continue reading
