… 2300 people. Greg won a dominant 12 round unanimous decision over Michael Anderson. 120-108 twice 120-106. He looked like he could have gone another 12 rounds easy. Kid's stamina is second to none. Co- main event, our fighter Luis Arcon Diaz is now 8-0 8KOs, he stopped Mario Lozano, now 18-4-1 with a third round highlight real KO!
