- Updated: April 11, 2015
Frank Galarza gave the hometown crowd something to cheer about on Friday night, after knocking out Sheldon Moore in the third round of the main event of ShoBox from the Aviator Sports and Events Center in Brooklyn, New York.
Galarza (17-0-2, 11 KOs) had Moore hurt with a left hook in the third round, and follow-up combination sent Moore down. The Belgian attempted to make it to his feet but was unable to beat the count.
“It feels great. It’s amazing to get that knockout in front of my home fans,” Galarza said. “He was tough and he came to fight, but we executed the game plan and got him out of there. I hit him with that left and I saw he was hurt. I went body, head, body, head and finished him.
“We’re ready. Anybody they bring next, we’re ready.”
Moore acknowledged he was hurt but said he would have liked to continue.
In the co-feature, Ievgen Khytrov (10-0, 9 KOs) earned a unanimous decision win over Aaron Coley (91-1-1, 6 KOs) with scores of 78-74, and 79-73 twice.
