In the night’s other headline bout, veteran middleweight Russell Lamour Jr. of the Portland Boxing Club returned to the ring after a year-long absence to win by technical knockout over journeyman Larry Smith of Dallas, Texas.

Lamour used body shots to force the stoppage. With the victory, he improved his pro record to 16-3 with one no contest.
