Frankie Figueroa prevails in Rochester

Two pro bouts took place at the Riverside Convention Center in Rochester, New York as part of a pro-am card. The featured bout saw junior welterweight Frankie Figueroa score a seventh-round technical knockout of Leo Edwards. Figueroa, now 11-2, floored Edwards in the third round, but Edwards, 5-5, got up and gave Figueroa a very tough time in the ensuing rounds. However, the referee stopped the bout in the seventh when Edwards went down and his corner was about to throw in the towel.  In the other pro bout, junior lightweight Eduardo Valdez won by first-round technical knockout of Alex Cruz.
