On Friday night, June 28, junior welterweight prospect Herbert Acevedo (9-1, 5 KO’s) bounced back from his first professional defeat with a convincing victory over Rynell Griffin inside of the Quiet Cannon in Montebello, Calif.
Griffin offered up a spirited fight but he was simply outgunned by Acevedo, who scored a knockdown in the fourth round while landing several telling, thudding blows.
Acevedo had dropped a decision to unheralded Joaquin Chavez back in March in a surprising upset. Trained by Robert Garcia in Oxnard, Acevedo is now back on the winning side of things as he looks to keep climbing the ladder towards being a serious prospect.
