Lorenzo “Truck” Simpson (1-0) vs. Derion Chapman(3-2-1)

The future continues to look really bright for “Truck” Simpson as he was “on” from the start of the fight. It was clear that the left uppercut was going to be the “money” punch as he was landing it often and hard. It was the right hook that sent Chapman to the canvas and after he got up, the referee felt he had enough and called a halt to the action. Lorenzo Simpson earns the first round knockout.G

Jose Balderas (5-0) vs. Jerrod Minor (1-3-2)

This one got off to a quick start as both men were throwing big shots upstairs. Balderas started the second with a good jab and was consistently landing the overhand right. In the third, Balderas turned up the pressure and was landing harder over hand rights. Minor’s corner saw enough and Jose Balderas earns the third round KO win.
