According to the program I picked up on the way into the Benton Convention Center venue, Jerry Odom was supposed to fight Perseus Givens in a 4-round bout, and Greg Newby was scheduled to fight Lee Bechtol, who doesn’t even appear on the BoxRec site with any record, which is kind of strange because that was scheduled for 6 rounds; not customary if it was Bechtol’s debut. Anyway, both of those fights didn’t happen. I don’t know the reason for the cancellation.

Did Juan Rodriguez have an opponent last night? If so, how did he do?

Rodriguez was scheduled to be on the card in Norfolk, VA. I was told he didn't fight, however. I don't know why.
