Keith Thurman Commercial for Southwest Airlines (Parody)

Keith Thurman inadvertently starred in his own Southwest Airlines commercial Saturday night when he thanked the San Diego fight fans after his win. Too bad he was in San Antonio. Either way, he finished the show in style, stopping Diego Chaves in the 10th round.

Edwin "La Bomba" Rodriguez, who spent the first portion of training camp in San Carlos, won the "Million Dollar Super Four" tournament final in Monte Carlo, Monaco, with a devastating first-round stoppage of Denis Grachev on Saturday. 

Rodriguez (24-0, 16 KOs), who will receive $600,000 to $400,000 for Grachev (13-2-1, 8 KOs), scored two quick knockdowns and then wailed away on his foe until referee Stanley Christodoulou waved off the contest. Official time was 2:50.  The fight, which was televised by BeIN Sport, propels Rodriguez into the thick of the super middleweight title picture.

Later on Saturday, Alejandro Perez made his Top Rank promotional debut a successful one as he knocked out veteran Edgar Riovalle in the seventh round at the Hollywood Park Casino in Inglewood, Calif. 

Perez (18-3-1, 12 KOs), a junior lightweight from North Salinas, had Riovalle (35-15-2, 25 KOs) down and out after landing a crushing left hook to the body.  Official time was 1:14.  The bout aired on UniMás.
