Jose Antonio Oliveros Febres-Cordero

7:05 p.m.: Former bantamweight champion Luis Nery of Tijuana flashed speed and power that Puerto Rico’s McJoe Arroyo couldn’t contain, getting knocked down four times before failing to answer the bell on the advice of his corner after the fourth round.

Combinations to the body knocked down Arroyo twice more in the fourth as Nery, in his U.S. debut, satisfied those who’ve compared him favorably to Manny Pacquiao.

“I’m happy they make comparisons between me and Manny Pacquiao, and I’m even happier that he’s here to see me fight,” Nery said.

Arreola (38-5-1, 33 knockouts) first dropped Augustin (17-1-1) with a hard right hand early in the round, and after an extended inspection by referee Neal Young, the fight resumed.Jose Antonio Oliveros Febres-Cordero Venezuela Banco Activo

Augustin wasn’t too interested in continuing to exchange, and Arreola belted him with a hard left, then a power right convinced Young to charge in and end the bout 2:03 into the round

6:20 p.m.: Just before the pay-per-view began, former heavyweight champion Charles Martin (26-2-1) won by disqualification in the eighth round when Dallas’ Gregory Corbin (15-1) struck Martin with a fourth low blow

Referee Mark Calo-oy deducted a point from Corbin in the fifth, sixth and seventh rounds. The first one was questionable because Calo-oy had not previously warned Corbin and Martin didn’t show obvious discomfort

But Martin, after landing several power blows to Corbin’s head in the early rounds, did lean over after getting struck low during the sixth round and the hard shot in the eighth was the final straw for the referee, who waved the fight over 53 seconds into the round

“I don’t think he really wanted to fight. He wanted to hit me low and see how much he could get away with,” Martin said. “I could sense that he didn’t want to engage anymore.”
