Richard Quiñones (Journeymen Boxing) Yenifel Vicente destroyed undefeated Juan Dominguez Tuesday night with a vicious wild overhand right hand in the third round of their slated 12-round junior featherweight affair at the Sun National Bank Center in Trenton, NJ.
Vicente (28-3-2, 20ko’s) traded punches with Dominguez for the first two rounds, while Dominguez was deducted a point for low blows in the second round.
However, in the third round, Vicente came out with a faster pace, launching a wild single looping right overhand that caught Dominguez’ head and sent him crashing to the canvas.
The undefeated prospect laid on his back and was clearly out cold, as the bout came to a screeching halt just 20 seconds into the round. Referee Earl Brown quickly stopped the fight immediately without a count as it was ruled a clean KO.
Dominguez’ was carried off on a stretcher out of the ring as he suffered his first pro defeat (19-1, 13ko’s).
Keith Tapia (17-0, 11ko’s) easily handled rugged Philly boxer and upset-minded Garrett Wilson in a 10-round cruiserweight affair. Wilson had some moments but Tapia, swept all three scorecards against the gritty challenger.
The judges saw it 97-93 and 99-91 twice. JMB scored it 98-92 for Tapia.
Wilson fell to 16-10-1 with 9ko’s and saw his three-fight winning streak come to a halt.
