Enrique Ornelas gets into the body of Julius Fogle during their bout at Fight Night Club on April 22.

Enrique Ornelas (30-6; 20 KO) knocked out Julius Fogle (15-4; 10 KO) in the light heavyweight main event on Thursday as boxing action returned to L.A. Live's Club Nokia with Golden Boy Promotions' monthly Fight Night Club.

The bout started slowly, but Ornelas leveled Fogle in the fourth round of a fight that was scheduled to go eight.

Scheduling was a source of confusion in the cruiserweight co-main event, between Deon Elam (11-1; 5 KO) and Andre Hemphill (8-15-2; 5 KO) of Philadelphia. While the bout was intended to go six rounds, an apparent discrepancy in the information given to the officials caused it to be called after just four. Elam won by unanimous decision.

Khabir “The Crazy Russian” Suleymanov defeated Benji Garcia (14-14-3; 1 KO) in the six-round bantamweight television opener, keeping his record perfect. He is now 10-0, with four coming by knockout.

In a junior middleweight TV swing bout between two fighters making their pro debuts, Roberto Reyes quickly knocked out Azamat Umarzoda.

In other action, Luis Martinez (2-3-1) defeated Juan Sandoval (1-2; 1 KO) in a junior lightweight bout, Hiromitsu Miura (2-0) defeated Nathan Bedwell (0-2) of Tennessee in light heavyweight action, and Clint Coronel (3-0-1; 1 KO) prevailed over David Aleman (1-1; 1 KO) in the night's closing welterweight fight.
