UNDERCARD RESULTS FROM RHODE ISLAND
Tylon Burris TKO2 Kevin Cobbs... In Rhode Island, prior to Peter Mafredo Jr.'s comeback bout, light heavyweight Tylon Burris (4-0) of Hartford, Conn., ended Kevin Cobbs’ five-fight winning streak with authority, stopping Cobbs in the second round. Burris knocked down Cobbs in the opening minute of the first round and continued to apply the pressure in the second, rocking his opponent with a series of hard, overhands rights that sent Cobbs into the ropes. Referee Joey Lupino stopped the bout following another flurry from Burris.
OTHER RESULTS... Providence’s female bantamweight Shelito Vincent (6-0), who scored a dominant win over challenger Rosie Thomas. Vincent utilized her superior speed to earn her fifth win of the year.

Springfield, Mass., welterweight Zack Ramsey (3-0, 3 KOs) made quick work of Alabama newcomer Michael Lambert (0-1) in the opening bout, stopping his opponent in just 1 minute, 15 seconds. Ramsey sent Lambert to the canvas twice with Lupino promptly stopping the bout after the second knockdown... In a super middleweight bout, Joey Gardner (10-5-1) of Woonsocket, R.I., outworked Providence’s Alex Amparo (5-1) to earn a 59-55, 58-56 (twice) unanimous decision. Gardner was the busier fighter, effectively weaving in and out and landing more than enough punches while simultaneously avoiding any serious damage. Gardner picked up his second consecutive win and his third in his last four fights. source: CES press release
