Puerto Rican Alberto ‘Explosivo’ Machado left no doubt of his power in the ring by knocking out at the 2:25 mark of the firs round the American native Yuandale Evans. The fight was the second successful defense of the super featherweight champion of the World Boxing Association.

Machado (21-0, 17 KOs) and Evans (20-2, 14 KOs) joined the main card of Matchroom Boxing, DiBella Entertainment, and Cotto Promotions at the Hulu Theater of the legendary Madison Square Garden, where the Puerto Rican hopes to become a future star.

Alberto achieved his second victory of the year after having traveled the distance last July against the mandatory challenger, the Ghana native Rafael Mensah. This time he did not let go of the knockout, becoming one of the most exciting fighters to follow in the 130 pound division.

In the future there is talk of a fight between Machado and former world champion Francisco Vargas, and he even mentioned a unification fight with Mexican Miguel ‘Alacran’ Berchelt because he wants to reach the top of the pugilism and get himself entered into the ranking of the 10 best pound for pound.
