Eddie Gomez TKO2 Saul Corral... On the same show, welterweight Eddie Gomez won his third straight, stopping Saul Corral (30-14) in two rounds. In round two, Gomez dropped Corral with a hard right. Seconds later, it was a double left to the body that sent Corral to the canvas. Corral was hurt, and then a clipping left sent him down for a third time.  Gomez ended the fight with a flurry of punches that had the referee stop the bout as Corral was falling for a fourth time. Gomez, of Bronx, NY is now 23-3. "Great fight, great team. I worked hard and it showed tonight. My opponent was a tough fighter, and we knew he was tough coming in. I just knew I had to do my job," said Gomez

Said Tim VanNewhouse of Split-T Management, "Eddie looked sensational tonight.  He once again proved he is ready for big fights.  Golden Boy has several intriguing options such as Vergil Ortiz, Jr., Anthony Young or a rematch with Rashidi Ellis.  We would welcome any of those opportunities in our next bout." source:  Split-T Management
