  • Location: Prudential Center, Newark, New Jersey, USA
  • Referee: Steve Smoger

The opening bout on the Tomasz Adamek-Michael Grant fight card in Newark featured two debuting junior lightweight fighters. Luckey, a three time Golden Gloves champion, dropped Yanez with a left hook early in round one. Yanez got up and tried to hold but couldn't and got hit with too many power shots to the head. Referee Steve Smoger stopped the bout, with Yanez taking a huge beating on the ropes and unable to defend himself against the better fighter. Time: 0:53 of first round.
