Sons of ring legends were in action Saturday night at Thunder Studios in Long Beach, California.

Unbeaten super welterweight Fernando Vargas Jr (13-0, 12 KOs), son of Hall of Famer Fernando “Feroz” Vargas, impressively demolished Wilfrido Buelvas (24-18, 18 KOs). Vargas dropped Buelvas in round one and finished him with another knockdown in round two. Time was :52.

Featherweight Michael Bracamontes (8-1-1, 4 KOs) won an eight round unanimous decision over Jose Luis Castillo Jr (27-4, 20 KOs), son of two-time world champion Jose Luis Castillo. Close, competitive fight but two judges somehow had it a shutout. Scores were 80-72, 80-72, 78-74.

Irma Garcia (23-5-1, 4 KOs) outscored Stephanie Silva (8-1, 0 KOs) over ten rounds for the vacant IBF female super flyweight title. Scores were 99-90 3x. Garcia dropped Silva in round five.

    • Vargas is not ready for Tszu. He still has a few more years to fully develop an Vargas Sr. Has already stated he learned from his mistakes when he was thrown in with the big dogs at a very young age. I think he takes his time with his son($).

  • Jose Luis Castillo Jr. was royally robbed. Horrible decision. I had Castillo winning 7 rounds to 1, or maybe, 8 rounds to 0. Michael Bracamontes will likely get knocked out in the pro debut of one of the Olympians making a pro debut, and this includes one who got knocked out in the 1st round of the Olympics. Again, that decision was HORRIBLE.

  • i can see on the boxing list out of 20 only 1 can be seen for free. you want to see boxing it will cost, just how many fight can an 85 old man afford, its either dazn or some other ppv, now showtime is quitting boxing, so i will cancel the station. i love boxing have watched since i was 10. must gready fighters. used to be only major fights were ppv. i am disgusted

    • Doesn’t seem correct to blame the fighters. The fighters fight, not decide how the fights will be broadcasted.
      Of course, the best fighters in the sport want to get paid well just like all the other professional athletes across the major sports. And they should.

  • The real question here is, why the main event was a 4rd fight(correction:theater) fake knockout by some guy with 190k instagram followers,who fights once a year, and who couldn’t fight his way out of a paper bag. Ten Count for the sport of boxing.
