*Rodriguez came in heavy for the bantamweight fight. Leon gained weight to get within the Illinois commission’s allowable weight discrepancy to allow the bout to proceed at a catchweight, and Rodriguez forfeits 50 percent of his show money to Leon.

**Askar missed the bantamweight limit, putting his weight above the allowable range for the division between him and Moore. The fight has been scrapped.
