The fight was one-sided with Jose Martinez hurting Jesus Martinez in the third and stopping him seconds into the fourth.
In the co-feature, welterweight Alexis Rocha (10-0, 7 KOs) scored a first-round KO over Pascual Salgado (12-8, 8 KOs) that saw a bizarre finish in which he hit his opponent while he was down.
Junior welterweight prospect Vergil Ortiz Jr. (8-0, 8 KOs) also picked up a first-round KO over Evandro Cavalheiro (9-4, 5 KOs) on a punch that appeared to be behind the head.
