The Golden Boy Promotion's ''L.A. Fight Club'' debut, televised through Fox Sports / Fox Deportes started well with a sold-out house at the Belasco Theater in Downtown Los Angeles. Featherweight stand-out Joseph “Jo Jo” Diaz Jr. 15-0, (10KOs) looked sharp as usual in stopping a very tough Juan Luis Hernandez 17-5-1, (9KOs) at what seemed to be an after the bell shot. It was however ruled 3:00 of the third frame in the main event (scheduled for ten).
The quick fisted Diaz landed sharp shots to the body and head at near will, with Hernandez taking everything thrown his way and doing his best to come back, occasionally landing the sporadic shot.
The end came as the bell rang with Diaz landing a body shot which left his foe doubled over on the canvas. After a few moments it was declared by the officials that the shots came at exactly 3:00 of the round with Diaz walking away with another KO win.
''Chimpa'' Defeats Sarinana in six.
Newly signed by Golden Boy Promotion's Lightweight Christian “Chimpa” Gonzales 9-0, (9KOs) faced his toughest test to date in Julio Cesar Sarinana 3-3 (1KO). The battle went the six round distance. Gonzalez, the youngest brother of former WBC Featherweight champion Alejandro ''Cobrita'' Gonzales and uncle to once-defeated ''Cobrita'' Gonzales Jr., prior to the fight, all of Gonzales' opponents went by the wayside in the first couple of rounds.
Gonzales was down early on, after a flurry of shots caught him backpedaling and off-balance.
Trading hard shots, and head clashes led to a point deduction against Sarinana at the end of the fifth.
A hurt Sarinana, dazed and wobbled had the fight stopped by the referee at at 2:02 of the round with Gonzales walking away undefeated and with his record intact.
