(All times Eastern.)

Gary Antonio Russell escapes with majority decision over Alejandro Barrios

11:05 p.m.: The keyword here is “escape.” Barrios won the fans tonight with his performance but Russell got away with a majority decision with scores of 95-95, 96-94 and 96-94. Russell waited too long and allowed Barrios to work him over for much of the fight. Fortunately, the judges gave him a few rounds that kept his unbeaten record intact. 

10:49 p.m.: Okay, it’s not just competitive anymore. We’ve reached the point where Barrios could very well be ahead as we enter the tenth and final round. The relentless pressure and clean punches have given him more than a few rounds. We’ll see how the judges have it as we approach the final round. But it’s a pretty good showing by the unheralded Barrios. 

10:38 p.m.: Well, this is definitely a fight. After six rounds, Barrios has landed some clean shots while Russell continues to try to time his advances and pick his foe off with counters. The problem is that Barrios just won’t go away and baits Russell into firefights he shouldn’t be in. 

10:28 p.m.: What was thought to be a cakewalk for Russell has turned out to be a little more competitive as Barrios continues to pressure Russell and force him to work. Russell is up but the highlight reel knockout some expected hasn’t arrived just yet. 

10:15 p.m.: We’re live from Las Vegas and kicking off tonight’s card with Gary Antonio Russell vs. Alejandro Barrios in bantamweight action.
