Chris Colbert vs. Hector Garcia – Las Vegas Live Scores
Later in the evening, Chris Colbert will take on late replacement Hector Luis Garcia in a featherweight showdown that will serve as the main event on Showtime. Colbert was originally scheduled to face Roger Gutierrez for the WBA junior super lightweight title which Gervonta Davis vacated when he decided to campaign in the lightweight division.
Justin Cardona (7-0) kept his perfect record intact with a third-round knockout of Joshua Drafter (4-2-1). The 22-year-old lightweight prospect started strong, dropping Draughter just seconds into the first round. Cardona of Salinas, Calif., was too strong for Draughter and continued to hurt him throughout the fight. The referee stopped the fight in the third round with Draughter still standing due to an accumulation of penalties.
Angel Barrientes (8-1) impressed with a 3rd round knockout of Brian Cannady (10-3) in their super bantamweight tilt. Barrientes scored knockdowns in the second and third rounds, the second of which prompted the referee to forfeit the fight. Barrientes, 19, has now won five fights in a row.
Micky Scala (5-0) of Mesa, Arizona opened the night with an impressive second-round knockout victory over Jose Gomez (3-2) of Livermore, Calif., in their super welterweight bout. The Mayweather Promotions fighter is hoping for a busy 2022 after his 2021 campaign was marred by cancellations from multiple opponents.
