Helena boxer Duran Caferro Jr. scored a second-round knockout over Angel Torres of Los Angeles in a lightweight bout at the Lewis and Clark County Fairgrounds in Helena on Saturday.

Caferro, fighting in his seventh professional fight, opened up midway through the second round by sending Torres to the canvas with hard punches to the head. He then scored the final knockdown with a lethal left hook to the body that caused Torres to take the 10-second count with 2:56 left in the round.

Caferro, 24, improved his pro record to 6-1 with six knockouts. He was one of Montana’s most successful amateur boxers with numerous state, regional and national titles. In other pro bouts, Kalispell’s Jesse Uhde outpointed Andrew Houke at 175 pounds, and John J. Mount of Hayes scored a first-round knockout over Arnold Sisneros of Rocky Boy in a middleweight match.

The card also featured six semipro matches. In one of the featured matchups, “Sugar” Sean O’Malley stopped Josh Faure in the third round of a lightweight bout. Both boxers represented rival Helena clubs and Anaconda.

Light-heavyweight Jered Lunceford scored a first-round knockout over Bobby Bradford of Rocky Boy. Lunceford hurt Bradford early and finished the job with thunderous body punches 58 seconds into the first round. Lunceford is 4-0 as a semipro boxer.
