NEW YORK (AP) Carlos Adames of the Dominican Republic remained undefeated by unanimously outpointing Mexican Alejandro Barrera on Saturday night.

Adames (14-0, 11 KOs) won by scores of 98-92, 97-93 and 96-94 in the 10-round welterweight bout on the undercard of the lightweight championship bout between Vasiliy Lomachenko and Jorge Linares.

Adames, who hadn't fought in the U.S. since his fourth pro bout back in 2015, pounded away with body shots in the early rounds but took plenty back as the fight went on from Barrera (27-5, 17 KOs), whose only stoppage loss came against IBF welterweight champion Errol Spence Jr.

The card at Madison Square Garden also featured victories for a number of unbeaten former Olympians.

The most impressive was Teofimo Lopez (9-0, 7 KOs), a New Yorker who fought for Honduras in 2016. He boasted he would be the star of the card and didn't disappoint, dropping Vitor Freitas of Brazil with a looping right hand that caught him near the back of the head and knocked him under the ropes. Freitas (13-2) was struggling to regain his balance and get up when the fight was stopped at 1:04 of the first round.

Ireland's Michael Conlan (7-0, 5 KOs), fighting again in the arena where he made his pro debut on St. Patrick's Day last year, won every round on all three judges' cards in a unanimous decision over Spain's Ibon Larrinaga (10-2).

Fazliddin Gaibnazarov (4-0, 2 KOs), a 2016 gold medalist from Uzbekistan, got the second stoppage win of his young career when referee Ron Lipton ended the fight after he had dropped Jesus Silveyra (8-6-2) twice in the fourth round.

American Mikaela Mayer (5-0) was forced to go the distance for just the second time before the 2016 Olympian beat New Zealand's Baby Nansen (6-3-1) by unanimous decision.

Also, Jamel Herring (17-2, 10 KOs), a U.S. Marine who boxed for the Americans in London in 2012, overcame a cut caused by a second-round clash of heads to stop Mexico's Juan Pablo Sanchez (29-16) in the fifth round.
