Danielito Zorilla KO2 Gamaliel Diaz... Puerto Rican junior welterweight Danielito Zorilla (11-0) scored a nice knockout of faded former junior lightweight champion Gamaliel Diaz (40-20-3) in Indio, California. Promoted by Miguel Cotto, Zorilla landed a powerful left to Diaz's jaw that launched Diaz's feet off the ground and caused his mouthpiece to fall out. The 38 year-old Diaz, six years beyond his championship days, tried to get up but could not beat the count. Retirement beckons. source: DAZN

Kudratillo Abdukakhorov W12 Keita Obara... In Philadelphia, Uzbekistan's Kudratillo "The Punisher" Abdukakhorov defeated Keita Obara in an IBF welterweight eliminator, outting himself in line for a shot at Errol Spence Jr.'s title. Kudratillo Abdukakhorov won the twelve rounder by scores of 118-110, 117-111 and 115-113. The winner, in his United States debut, improves to 16-0, while Obara returns to Japan at 20-4-1. source: espn2

Aaron McKenna W6 Loretto Olivas ... In Indio, California, Irish-born welterweight Aaron McKenna thoroughly outboxed overmatched Loretto Olivas throughout a six-round fight.  McKenna landed a perfect right hand in the first round that landed Olivas on the seat of his trunks.  For the remainder of the fight, the young Mckenna, only 19 years old, focused on his technique and did not seem overly anxious for the knockout.  His pinpoint shots were thrown in crisp combination upstairs and down, doing the type of damage that might have knocked out many other fighters.  Olivas, born on Mexico but fighting out of New Mexico,  showed a great chin and big heart, but simply lacked the skill to compete with McKenna tonight who improves to 7-0. Olivas is now 3-1. source: DAZN
