Seeger: "I feel real bad about tonight. I let myself down and a lot of other people too. I know I am a better fighter than that. He was difficult to fight and I could've fought a smarter fight tonight too."
Juan LAZCANO vs Manuel GARNICA - Result: Lazcano 10 Round Split Decision
Quotes: Lazcano "He didn't come to fight. I kept telling him, 'cmon and fight; you don't have any guts to fight.' He was a very slippery fighter so it was somewhat difficult to fight him the way I wanted but he didn't really come to fight. As far as split decision, I can agree with that because I went in there and delivered and he didn't. He really didn't want to fight."
Garnica: "I think I should have won the fight and the split decision went the wrong way because you could even tell by the crowds reaction. I gave him a boxing lesson and all he came to do was wrestle with me. He's a dirty fighter and I think I won the fight."
Antonio ESCALANTE vs Omar ADORNO - Result: Escalante TKO, 1:22 2nd Round
Quotes: Escalante "I was surprised I could end it so quickly. I have watched his tapes and seen him fight and was expecting more from him. I knew he was going to come forward and so, he was going to have to taste my power and either he was going to take it or it was going to be over." It obviously was over."
Gerry PEñALOSA vs Mauricio MARTINEZ - Result: PEñALOSA KO; 1:06 9th Round
Quotes: Penalosa "I hurt my left hand in the first round when I hit him and he went down. After I hurt it I was a little scared to throw it with all my power but after a while I just got back in to my fight plan. I am glad to be here tonight and with the same promoter as my stablemate Manny Paquaio."
Andre BERTO vs James CRAYTON - Result: Berto, TKO :34 5th Round
"I didn't feel too well tonight, a bit groggy. Originally I was suppose to fight on the 14th and then it got moved and my training camp was extended to the longest it has been. I give myself a five. But I was happy to get the fight. People expect me to go in and blow out my opponent. I'm glad I got the work and to stop a real veteran in Crayton, who has only been knocked out two times in his career, feels good."
