Fight in progress: Haven Brady Jr. vs. Roberto Negrete, 4 rounds, featherweights


Results:

Cobb scores KO of the year candidate against Campbell

Antoine Cobb made his pro debut in sensational fashion with a brutal first-round knockout of Jerrion Campbell.

Cobb, 25, unleashed an overhand right that sent his foe to the canvas sprawled out with his head resting on the bottom rope. Time of the stoppage was 58 seconds.

Campbell (2-2, 0 KOs) was stopped for the first time as a professional. The 29-year-old native of Germany has lost two in a row.


Mederos wins, doesn’t shine

Harley Mederos defeated Deljerro Revello via unanimous decision over four rounds to kick off the Herring-Stevenson undercard.

All three judges scored the fight a shutout, 40-35. The lightweight prospect scored a first-round knockdown but otherwise failed to impress in his second pro fight. Mederos, 21, from Brooklyn, New York, recklessly head-hunted during the bout but surely gained valuable experience.

Mederos (2-0, 1 KO) scored a first-round TKO in his pro debut in August. This fight was expected to be quick work, as well, but Mederos seemed to make little adjustments when it was clear he wasn’t going to score the KO.

Revello (0-2), a 25-year-old from Colorado, was knocked out in his pro debut in July.
