After last month’s sold out Murphys Boxing’s debut at Encore Boston Harbor, the brand new 2.6 billion dollar resort casino located on Boston’s waterfront, another capacity crowd watched NABA super featherweight champion Abraham Nova (16-0, 12 KOs) stop Luis Castillo (20-4, 15 KOs) in the first round.
With just seconds left in the opening stanza, Nova laid out Castillo with a textbook jab and cross.
Unbeaten 2008 and 2012 Ecuadorian Olympian middleweight Carlos Gongora (17-0, 13 KOs) scored a first round KO over Alan Zavala (15-5, 13 KOs). Time 2:05.
Welterweight Khiry Todd (9-1, 7 KOs) dropped and stopped Alex Duarte (14-8-1, 11 KOs) in the first round.
Unbeaten welterweight Brian Ceballo (10-0, 5 KOs) scored a fourth round KO over Luis Florez (24-14, 20 KOs). A left hook to the body finished Florez.
