Richard Torrez stole the show last night as he produced a violent knockout over Marco Antonio Cancedo on the undercard of Jose Pedraza and Richard Commey's split decision draw in Tulsa.
Torrez started fast and instantly piled the pressure on Cancedo, sending him to the canvas early in round one. Torrez refused to let Cancedo off the hook, as he would land a flurry of punches, finished off with a right hook, sending Cancedo face first to the canvas.
