Noel Esqueda (8-4-2, 6 KO’s) of Wichita, Kansas stunned the Grand Casino crowd earlier tonight by stopping DeLorien Caraway (10-1, 5 KO’s) of Minneapolis at 2:59 of the sixth round. Both fighters took turns rocking each other and trading momentum throughout the fight. After hurting Caraway in the sixth, Esqueda was able to land a hard right to the head just as the bell sounded to drop Caraway for the second time in the round and the fight was stopped. It was one of the more memorable bouts Minnesota has seen in recent years.
