Sounds like some great action was going down last night in El Paso, Tex. as three fighters from Roy Jones Jr.’s promotional banner all scored victories inside of the El Paso County Coliseum.

In the evening’s main event, former bantamweight champion Joseph “King Kong” Agbeko scored a 4th round TKO over Juanito Rubillar to improve to 30-5 with 23 knockouts. It was Agbeko’s first fight since his lopsided defeat to Guillermo Rigondeaux in December of 2013 and this was a pivotal step for the Ghanaian.
