TAMPA -

All Wilky Campfort's corner wanted him to do was stick with one thing when he faced Quinton Willis on Friday night in the main event of One Punch Production's Ballroom Brawl - stick with the jab.

For the most part, Campfort listened and kept Willis at the end of his jab on his way to a unanimous-decision win.

"I was just listening to my corner and doing what they told me to do in there," Campfort said inside the changing room. "And the fight came easy. That's all I had to do."

Even when Campfort (7-1, 4 KOs) was forced to take the fight inside with Willis (6-2-1, 3 KOs), he held his own, landing effective blows and covering up counterpunches.

The night's co-main event between Luis Ortiz and Ruben Rivera ended early after Rivera (3-6, 1 KO) was disqualified after the fourth low blow in the fifth round. The win kept Ortiz (6-0, 4 KOs) with a clean record.

Sherali Dostiev (8-0, 2 KOs) used every inch of the ring to collect a six-round unanimous decision victory against Carlos Rivera (16-8-2, 5 KOs).

For the better portion of the six-round fight, Dostiev circled the ring, never settling in and allowing himself to be a target for Rivera, who at times looked frustrated.

In the night's other matches:

•Yoandris Salinas (5-0, 2 KOs) beat Angel Lopez (2-10, 2 KOs) by technical knockout in the first round.

•Frank Gedeon (2-0) knocked out Miguel Canales (0-1) in the second round.

•Kadel Martinez (1-0) scored a four-round majority decision victory against Shane Tenney (0-2).

•Vilier Quinonez (2-0) beat LD Herbert (0-1) by TKO.

•Umberto Savigne (3-1, 2 KOs) won a four-round unanimous decision victory against Amador Acevedo (3-9-1, 3 KOs).
