Undefeated Jr. Welterweight prospect Rubin Torres scored a first round knockout of veteran Diego Contreras on Sunday night at Omega Products International in Corona, CA. In the main event of a three bout card, Torres scored a quick knockdown of Contreras with a short left hook to the head. While this looked like a flash knockdown to an outside observer, Torres sensed his opponent was hurt and after Contreras got up from the knockdown, he pressed forward for the finish and dropped Contreras for a second and final time with a barrage of punches highlighted by two left hooks to the body, which forced the fight to be stopped just sixty-four seconds into the fight. Official time of the stoppage was 1:04 of round one. Rubin Torres advances to 15-0, with 12 Knockouts. Diego Contreras falls to 11-4, with 5 Knockouts.

Unbeaten Jr. Welterweight prospect Miguel Angel Madueno scored a first round knockout over Bergman Aguilar. Madueno, a native of Guasave, MX, who was making his United States debut was extremely aggressive from the outset and put Aguilar on the defensive immediately. Madueno’s pressure style eventually created an opening for a flush right hook to the solar plexus that sent Aguilar down in the closing seconds of round one where he was counted out by Referee Jack Reiss. Official time was 2:59 of round one. Miguel Angel Madueno advances to 24-0, with 22 Knockouts. Bergman Aguilar falls to 15-7-1, with 5 Knockouts.
In a Lightweight bout that began the evening, George Acosta scored a six round unanimous decision to earn the eleventh win of his career over thirty-four bout veteran Edgar Ramirez. It was a workmanlike performance for Acosta, who balanced his attack well to the body and head of Ramirez to earn a convincing decision victory. All three official judges scored every round for Acosta 60-54. George Acosta advances to 11-1, with 1 Knockout. Edgar Ramirez falls to 17-17-1, with 14 Knockouts.
This card, which was promoted by Ken Thompson’s Thompson Boxing Promotions as part of their growing 3-2-1 Boxing series streamed through the promoter’s YouTube channel and Facebook page provided a look at three prospects in Thompson Boxing’s stable. While those prospects George Acosta, Miguel Angel Madueno, and Rubin Torres faced what some could regard as limited opposition on this card, fights like this do serve a purpose as building blocks in the development of young fighters. Whether all three will be able to take the next steps in their respective development in future bouts remains to be seen.
