-A A +A

Los Alamos Police Department’s Lt. Jason Wardlow-Herrera knocked out Grant Lundquist of Santa Fe County’s fire department with a big right in the first round Saturday.
Wardlow-Herrera took part in the Rumble in the Rio boxing matches Saturday. The event was held at the Santa Ana Star Casino near Bernalillo.
The fights are an annual charity event that feature first-responders from around the state. Police officers won eight of the 12 fights on the card this year.
With Wardlow-Herrera’s knockout — the only KO of the night —the event’s roving trophy will be delivered to LAPD Friday. LAPD will have the trophy for the next year.
A pair of fighters from the Los Alamos Fire Department also took part. Daniel Garcia was TKO’d by New Mexico Department of Corrections’ Mike Chavez at 160 pounds, while Fred Herrman of LAFD lost a unanimous decision to NMDC’s Victor Duran at 180 pounds.
