After landing several unanswered right hands, Esparza stopped Campana at :11 of the third round of a scheduled eight-round super flyweight fight.

“We worked on being more aggressive and on landing the right hand,” said Marlen Esparza. “People aren’t used to seeing that side of me, so I showed it to make a statement.”
