Pictured: TTR's #6 ranked featherweight Oscar Valdez, the reigning WBO World Featherweight Champion


During the two-day period of Friday, March 9 and Saturday, March 10, thirteen fighters ranked by the participating members of TTR as being among the best currently campaigning in their respective weight classes were in action. Seven won; six lost.

The junior welterweight class had the most action with #11 ranked Regis Prograis annihilating #2 ranked Julius Indongo, unranked Kiryl Relikh winning his rematch with #10 ranked Rances Barthelemy, and #1 ranked Mikey Garcia outpointing #5 ranked Sergey Lipinets.

#9 ranked heavyweight Andy Ruiz, Jr. returned from an extensive layoff to knock out former Olympian Devin Vargas in the first round.

#6 ranked junior middleweight Brian Carlos Castano stopped #10 ranked Cedric Vitu.

#10 ranked lightweight Richard Commey droppred #13 ranked Alejandro Luna twice en route to scoring a sixth round TKO.

In a brutal, bone-breaking barn-burner, #6 ranked featherweight Oscar Valdez outscored an overweight #8 ranked Scott Quigg.

And in a stay-active bout fought in the junior flyweight class, #5 ranked strawweight Jose Argumedo stopped a game but inexperienced Edgar Cibrian.
