Undercard action from Alvarez-Hatton fight at Honda Center

March 5, 2011 |  7:38 pm

Four of the five undercard bouts from Honda Center have ended before the completion of the second round.

Middleweight James Kirkland marked his comeback from a two-year hiatus that included a prison stay on a gun charge by knocking out Ashanti Gibbs in the first round.

Super-middleweight prospect Daniel Jacobs marked his first fight with famed trainer Freddie Roach by scoring a first-round technical knockout of Robert Kliewer.

We're minutes away from a super-featherweight battle between Adrien Broner (19-0, 16 Kos) and Daniel Ponce De Leon (41-2, 34 KOs), followed by the WBC junior-middleweight title fight between Saul "Canelo" Alvarez and Matthew Hatton. HBO is televising the fights.
