The first few bouts here at the Staples Center happened in front of a fairly sparse crowd that trickled in slowly, though not without the odd cheering section. 

In the opening bout of the card, Randy Caballero stayed unbeaten at 15-0 (8 KO) with a 5th round TKO of Jamal Parram, 5-6-1 (4 KO). Shots to the body brought about the end, with Parram taking a knee twice before the end.

Up next, Omar Figueroa made quick work of Alain Hernandez with a TKO victory at 1:34 in Round 1. Figueroa also stayed unbeaten with a 18-0-1 (15 KO) ledger, while Hernandez fell to 18-11-2 (10 KO). Late in the round, Figueroa unloaded, which was apparently enough for the ref.
 
In the third bout of the evening, Jermell Charlo kept his 0 intact with a 5th round stoppage of Denis Douglin after some solid action. Charlo, 18-0 (9 KO), weathered some nice countering from Douglin in the fist two rounds, though seeming to do most of the damage. Douglin had a nice final minute of the 1st. Round 3 saw Douglin do well inside when he could, but the 4th featured long right hands from Charlo that appeared to sting. In the 5th, Charlo lined Douglin up for a right hand that put him on his back. Rising on baby giraffe legs, Douglin was halted officially at 1:12 of the round. Douglin's record goes to 14-2 (8 KO).
