Three boxing matches were held during the afternoon at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. No fans were allowed into the building, but FOX aired the matches live.

Undefeated lightweight prospect Frank Martin (14-0, 11 KOs) of Detroit won a ten round unanimous decision over Ryan Kielczweski (30-5, 11 KOs). Fighting at a fast pace early on, Martin and Kielczweski exchanged good shots. There was a clash of heads in round three as they continued to box. Martin displayed his speed as Kielczweksi, being in top condition, made Martin work. Martin began to control the pace halfway through attacking Kielczweski. Credit to Kielczweski for hanging in as Martin looked for the knockout late in the fight and Kielczweski made Martin earn the victory. All three judges scored the bout 100-90.

  • Watch out for Rayo because Los Mochis has found another solid fighter. I will keep my eyes open for Rayo as he uses his jab more, develops his defense more and as his competition level develops.

  • Why wouldn’t FOX follow the UFC’s model and just show these on a live prelim card WITH fans as a lead in to the PPV?
