Atlantic City boxers Justin Figueroa and Francisco Rodriguez both registered convincing victories Saturday night at Jim Whelan Boardwalk Hall's Adrian Phillips Ballroom.

Figueroa (4-0, 4 KOs), a Holy Spirit High School graduate and Atlantic City lifeguard, scored two knockdowns en route to a second-round knockout over Mauel Moreira (0-4), of Sheridan, Wyoming in a super-welterweight bout. Figueroa dropped Moreira for the second time behind a flurry capped by a right hook to the body, prompting referee David Fields to stop the scheduled four-rounder without a count.

Rodriguez (1-0, 1 KO), a Pleasantville High School grad, was even more impressive. He needed just 1 minute, 48 seconds to earn a first-round TKO over Marco Dorame (0-1), of Sierra Vista, Arizona, in a four-round, super-featherweight fight.

Rodriguez dropped Dorame about a minute into the opening round with a body shot, then continued to work the body until the referee stepped in with 1:12 left in the round.

In Saturday's main event, heavyweight slugger Kristian Prenga (13-1, 13 KOs), a native of Albania now living in Canada, posted a second-round knockout over Samuel Crossed (11-4-1, 7 KOs), of Greenbelt, Maryland.

Among the other fights, Chattanooga, Tennessee welterweight Avious Griffin (11-0, 10 KOs) won via second-round knockout over Jose Alberto Gazo (31-14-1, 25 KOs), from Nicaragua; Newark flyweight Anthony Johns (6-0, 5 KOs) had a second-round stoppage over Ramon Valasquez (7-7, 0 KOs), Chile; and Philadelphia heavyweight Derek Starling (6-1, 4 KOs) gained a four-round, unanimous decision over Dennis Vance, Jr. (4-9-2, 2 KOs), of South Branch, Michigan.
