Saturday at Park City, Kansas

Nico Hernandez W6 Kendrick Latchman
Flyweight
Scores:  60-54, 59-55 (twice).
Records:  Hernandez (3-0, 2 KOs); Latchman (1-5-1, 1 KO)

Rafael's remarks:  Hernandez, 21, of Wichita, Kansas, who claimed a bronze medal in the 2016 Olympics, wound up facing last-minute opponent Latchman, 22, a southpaw from St. Louis, when Basyzbek Baratov (2-1-2) pulled out of the fight after the weigh in due to a contractual dispute. Despite weighing about 10 pounds less than Latchman on fight night, Hernandez took care of business after getting buzzed by a shot in the first round. Hernandez's is next scheduled to fight Dec. 2 at the same location as this fight, Hartman Arena.

Also on the card, Tramaine "The Mighty Midget" Williams (13-0, 5 KOs), 24, of New Haven, Connecticut, cruised to a one-sided unanimous decision - 98-91, 98-91 and 97-92 -- over Derrick Murray (13-3-1, 5 KOs), 29, of St. Louis

In an eight-round battle of heavyweights, Los Angeles' Scott Alexander  (12-2-2, 6 KOs) faces Richard "Silverback" Carmack  (15-1-1, 12 KOs), of Kansas City (MO).
