Bantamweight Antonio "Another" Russell out of Capitol Heights, MD scored a sixth-round TKO over Jose Maria Cardenas of Tijuana, Mexico.  Russell had no problems controling this contest. Russell was very active and accurate.

According to Gary Digital Williams of Boxing Along The Beltway,  As the bell rang to start the sixth round, Russell hit Cardenas with a stunning straight left hand.  Cardenas backed into a neutral corner and Russell swarmed him.  After just 22 seconds of action in the sixth, the ringside doctor told the referee to stop the bout.

Russell remains undefeated at (13-0, 11 KO's) while Cardenas falls to (16-4, 13 KO's).

Landover, MD welterweight Tyrek "I.G.B." Irby won a unanimous decision over Dennis Okoth of Kenya in a six-round bout. Irby sent Okoth down for a early eight count in the opening round.

Irby is now 7-0, two KO's.  Okoth drops to 2-2-1, one KO.
