In a featured PPV bout, Emanuel "Vaquero" Navarrete (31-1, 27 KOs) made the fifth successful defense of his WBO junior featherweight world title in less than a year, knocking out Filipino challenger Jeo Santisima (19-3, 16 KOs) in the 11th round.
"As I said during the build-up to the fight, I was coming for another knockout victory, and I got it," said Navarrete. "It took me a little more time than expected. I hurt him a couple of times during the fight, but I got to give it to him; he is a real Filipino warrior. He took a lot of punches and didn't go down. His corner had to stop the fight.
Navarrete, from San Juan Zitlaltepec, Mexico, is boxing's most active world champion, as he has won five in a row by stoppage since winning the world title via decision over Isaac "Royal Storm" Dogboe in December 2018.
"This is my fifth successful defense of the world title," said Navarrete. "Now I want a unification fight. I'll look at my options, but if I don't get it soon, I'll probably move to 126-pounds to challenge the champions at featherweight."
