In what looked like a competitive match up turned into a one sided affair as Kenneth Diaz stooped Rikardo Smith in Round three of a scheduled six round Welterweight bout at Cancha Ruben Zayas Montanez in Trujillo Alto, Puerto Rico.
In round one, Diaz was all over Smith as he landed many unanswered punches for which Smith did not take well at all and eventually dropping to the canvas in the corner. He would get out of round one and not much happened in round two but the many blows caused some nasty swelling around the left eye and basically completely shut the eye and Smith’s corner threw in the towel at forty-five seconds of round three.
Diaz, 147 lbs is now 6-0 with five knockouts. Smith, 146 lbs is 6-1.

In what was a crowd pleasing affair, Reynaldo Ojeda got off the the deck to stop Regino Canales in round five of their scheduled six round bout.
Canales floored Ojeda in the fourth from a hard combination that was finished off by a chopping left.. Ojeda came back to land a booming left hook that sent Canales to the Canvas in round five. Ojeda got to his feet only to eat a flurry of hard shots and the fight was stopped at fifty-eight seconds of round five.
Ojeda, 135 lbs is now 10-0 with five knockouts. Canales, 136 lbs is now 4-3.
