Malakai Johnson and Jose Delgado fight to a draw in Sacramento, CA
In a battle of unbeaten featherweights “Machine Gun” Malakai Johnson (1-0-1 1KO) of Sacramento, CA fought to a technical draw with Jose Delgado (1-0-2 1KO) of Robert Garcia’s Boxing Academy in Riverside, Ca in the main event of an action-packed night of cards from Uppercut Promotions on May 4th at the DoubleTree Hotel in Sacramento, CA.
Johnson and Delgado exchanged punches in a competitive opening round that was hard to score before the bell rang for the second round the doctor was called to look at a cut on Delgado as the bout was waived off. A rather anti-climatic ending to a fight that was very competitive.

Welterweight David Melgoza (1-0 1KO) picked up a third-round technical knockout over Nit Phonycheck (0-2) in a fight in which both punchers just hit each other relentlessly.
