Super Featherweight contender Erick De Leon survived a first-round knockdown and dominated the rest of the way, toppling Adrian Young via unanimous decision by scores of 97-92, 97-92, and 98-91.
It was a bounce-back performance for De Leon (18-0-1, 10 KOs), who was held to a draw against Andy Vences in his previous bout back on March 10.
“I felt great during the fight. He caught me a little bit cold with a good shot in the first round. He came to fight. I basically fought the whole fight with one arm. I dislocated my right shoulder in the first round, but we made it work and got a good win against a tough opponent,” said De Leon.
