Co-Main Event: Jaron Ennis vs. Custio Clayton – Welterweight

In the second round of this 147-pound showdown, Ennis connected with a solid over hand right that was set up by a beautiful feint jab. The right hand came down over the top of the high guard, and landed flush to the side of Clayton’s head. This proved to be the final punch of the fight.
Clayton was able to rise to his feet, but was in no shape to continue. The referee stopped the match at 2:49 of round 2.
