In an exciting six round light welterweight fight Ricardo Calzada(2-3,1KO) from Las Vegas, Nevada extended exciting East Los Angeles prospect Frankie “The pit Bull “Gomez(6-0,6KO’S) to three rounds. No matter what came his way Las Vegas fighter kept pressing forward and trying to land body shots turning an aggressive bull Gomez into a matador?  And just when it looked like Calzada would be able to take all the punches and keep coming forward, Gomez unloaded a crisp combination that deposited him on the canvas. Brave Calzada got up but was met with a torrent of punches that prompted commission member to jump up and tried to stop the fight, but before that happened Gomez dropped his adversary again for good.
