Friday Roundup: Gomez, Caballero win
Fantasy Springs Casino, Indio, California: Nineteen-year-old prospect, Frankie Gomez (10-0, 8 KOs) stopped an overmatched Khadaphi Proctor (7-6, 0 KOs) in four rounds to keep his undefeated record Friday night.
Gomez sent Proctor to the canvas in the third round and finished the job in the fourth with a barrage of straight right hands and left hooks that convinced the ref that it was time to to wave off the fight.
Also, in an undercard battle of undefeated 20-year-olds, Randy Caballero (12-0, 7 KOs) beat a lively and confident Alexis Santiago (8-1-1, 2 KOs) via eight-round unanimous decision by scores of 80-72, 80-72, 79-73.
Santiago came to win and was competitive throughout, but Caballero’s heavier hands and more fine-tuned technique made the difference, winning him him each round on The Boxing Tribune’s scorecard.
