Recap: A great round to open the co-main event. Both fighters were active and showed speed and good footwork. Each fighter had their moments but Nico did enough to win the round. Both men were cut entering the second round. Nico had better technical boxing and scored more in the second round, but Chancey Wilson was not afraid to engage. While neither boxer landed anything tremendously damaging, Hernandez did enough to win the round.
Wilson landed his best shot of the right, a short right hand, but Nico Hernandez took it well and kept moving forward. Wilson appeared to get clipped and knocked down, but it was ruled a slip.

Dave Rickels def. Clifford Wright via Unanimous Decision (50-45, 50-45 & 50-43)
Recap: Rickels showed a power advantage and nearly scored a knockdown in the early going with a right hand. He later landed a big uppercut. A big first round for Rickels, who did enough to win the round. Rickels did a great job working behind his jab and landed a major left hook that nearly dropped Wright. Both rounds were won handily by Rickels.
Rickels did more than enough to win the first three rounds, and he dominated the action inside the ring. He came out in the fourth looking to finish the fight. Wright showing a very good chin throughout the first three-plus rounds. They halted the action to work on a cut on Wright’s left eye but the fight continued. Another round in the books for Rickels who is up 4-0 on the cards.
Everyone knew Wright needed a finish in the final round, but it looked really unlikely. In fact, Dave Rickels did the majority of the damage and won the round, earning a unanimous decision.
Bill Dieckhoff def. Austen Levine via TKO (Punches) at 1:54 of Round 1

Isaac Doolittle def. Brandon Johnson via Majority Decision (48-46. 48-46 & 47-47)
Recap: Brandon Johnson landed the better strikes as the round began but ran into a counter right hand that dropped him. Isaac Doolittle fought smart and didn’t rush in and instead landed a handful of well-placed strikes to win the first round 10-8. Much slower second round and both fighters seemed to coast a bit. Doolittle suffered a cut not much else happened.
This fight has become almost painful to watch. Both men are throwing occasional single shots. Dolittle likely has gained control over the scorecards, but both fighters need to pick up the pace. Johnson needed something big in the fifth round but was unable to put Doolittle in any jeopardy. He won the round but lost the fight.
Antonio Hernandez def. Jack Frericks via Unanimous Decision (49-46, 49-46 & 48-47)
Recap: Good first round as the boxers both showed their skills and speed. Jack Frericks was busy doing a lot of talking, but Hernandez landed more shots and fought behind the jab winning the first round. More of the same in round 2, as Hernandez did more punching and despite not landing anything of note, did enough to go up 2-0 on my scorecards. This isn’t a great fight, but Frericks did enough to win the third and trails 2-1 heading into the fourth round.
Hernandez opened up in the fourth round and landed some big shots cutting Frericks to the cheek and nose. Frericks complained about a poke in the eye at the end of the fourth, but he lost the round and needs a stoppage heading into the final round. Frericks needed to do something dramatic in the final round but was more content to talk and taunt Hernandez. Antonio Hernandez did enough to win the round and the fight.
