Three undefeated prospects made successful ShoBox: The New Generation debuts on Friday night at Sam’s Town Live in Las Vegas.
In the main event, super bantamweight Angelo Leo (17-0, 8 KOs) took a one-sided a ten round unanimous decision over Neil John Tabanao (17-5, 11 KOs). Scores were 100-89, 100-90, 100-90.
“He was a tough fighter,” Leo said. “I’d give my performance an eight. He had a punch. I had to stay cautious in the beginning and take my time and get on the inside.”
Super featherweight Xavier Martinez (14-0, 10 KOs) battered John Moralde (21-3, 11 KOs) from the opening bell and got a third round TKO. Moralde down in round three. Time was 1.11.
“He kept smirking at me when we first started so I wanted to wipe that smirk off his face real quick,” Martinez said. “So it went from him smirking to him getting serious really fast. I was looking to get the knockout, but in my head I was thinking if it doesn’t happen, just keep working him. But I didn’t have to. I took him out on the third.”
Super featherweight Andres Cortes (11-0, 6 KOs) won an eight round unanimous decision over Jahmal Dyer (9-2, 5 KOs). Dyer dropped Cortes in round four, but Cortes prevailed on the scorecards 78-73, 79-73, 78-74.
