It was a special evening, as Miguel Cotto was presented with a special key to the venue where he fought 10 times during his illustrious career in for hire. The Cagüeño will be inducted into the Hall of Fame on Sunday.

Orlando “Capu” González left behind the first setback of his career with a knockout of Pablo Cruz in the fifth round. The southpaw from Aguadilla returned to the winning route after losing his unbeaten run to Cuban Robeisy Ramirez in October 2021.

Likewise, Omar Rosario improved to 7-0 after beating Julio Rosa in six rounds.

However, Carlos “Purin” Caraballo and Josué Vargas did not have the same luck.

Caraballo suffered his second setback in the past three fights when he was outpointed by Dominican Victor Santillan by decision. Meanwhile, Dakota Linger scored a TKO of Vargas in the second round.
