In front of a packed house in Las Vegas, Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (58-2-2, 39 KO’s) and Gennady Golovkin (42-2-1, 37 KO’s) went to war for the third, decisive and hopefully very last time. To say the luster has diminished on this rivalry would be an understatement. Still though, it’s a Las Vegas fight night. The atmosphere was electric inside the T-Mobile Arena as the Matchroom promoted show gave us all the bells and whistles a unified championship deserves.

  Las Vegas PPV Undercard Results  
By William Trillo @ Ringside
Low Blows and headbutts took center stage in this foulfest bout between Jesse Rodriguez (16-0, 11 KO’s) and Israel Gonzalez (28-4-1, 11 KO’s). This one could have been fought inside a phonebooth as most of the action took place in close quarters. That probably explains the headbutt that opened up a cut over the eye of Gonzalez. Both fighters were guilty of multiple low blows but only Rodriguez was penalized for going South of The Equator. As far as the legal action in the ring, it was Rodriguez who was in control. The Southpaw is very accurate with his punches and is pretty nimble with his footwork as well. “Bam” as they call him will be a very tough test for any of the other Super Flyweight Champions. Final scores read 118-109, 117-110 in favor of Rodriguez while another had it even at 114-114. With the majority decision “Bam” retained his undefeated record as well as the WBC World Super Flyweight belt.

For the first four rounds Diego Pacheco (16-0, 13 KO’s) was surveying the landscape and gauging his distance against the crafty Enrique Collazo (16-3-1, 11 KO’s). Once Pacheco zeroed in he set his right hand on a seek and destroy mission. It wasn’t long before those bombs hit their mark. At the 2:29 mark of round five Pacheco clipped Collazo’s chin and that sent the man to the canvas. Moments later Pacheco was landing at will leaving the ref no choice but to stop the onslaught. With the victory Pacheco grabbed the vacant WBC United States Super Middleweight strap.

And yes, I am aware Elvis doesn’t have the best track record when it comes to fight predictions, but when you are headed to the biggest event in Las Vegas, who else would you go to?

By William Trillo
Every once in a while a fighter comes along that immediately gets your attention. Sometimes it’s the way he moves in the ring. Other times it’s because he possesses impressive KO power. In the case of Ernesto “Tito” Mercado (6-0, 6 KO’s), it’s both. This young fighter has all the tools to become a top contender.

This Thursday in Costa Mesa California Mercado will once again display his wares. We were fortunate enough to catch up with “Tito” to find out more about him and his plans for what should be a very promising career.

  Torres Coldcocks Baez

From Corona California, Thompson Boxing Promotions put together a fantastic card this past Saturday night labeled “The Path to Glory.” Six competitive fights with two ending in a knockout made for an entertaining evening of quality boxing.

In the main event of the evening local sensation Ruben Torres (19-0, 16 KO’s) left the crowd stunned with a sudden knockout of Venezuela’s Cristian Baez (18-2, 17 KO’s). In the 7th round Torres (19-0, 15 KO’s) accidently stepped on the foot of Cristian Baez and knocked him down. Baez quickly jumped to his feet and complained that it was not a knockdown, but that Torres had stepped on his foot. Referee Thomas Taylor gave Baez the ten count. Reminiscent of the Mayweather-Victor Ortiz fight, Baez extended his glove to Torres as if to say, “You know you didn’t knock me down” when Torres unleashed a devastating left that knocked out Baez cold and he fell back like a redwood tree in the forest.

Prograis was the WBA champion in 2019 but says losing his crown to Josh Taylor, and the subsequent near three-year wait to secure another world title tilt, has made him realise he did not “cherish” what he had.
