Quigley Dominant With Explosive KO In One

By William Trillo @ Ringside

Middleweight Jason Quigley (12-0, 10 KOs) took the lead of his opponent Jorge Melendez (30-8-1, 28 KOs) who wanted to make a street fight out of the scheduled ten round bout. Taking it to the streets was an ill-advised move by Melendez as The Fighting Irishman Quigley got down and dirty dropping Melendez three times in the first before the towel was thrown at the 2:24 mark in to save Melendez from a further beating. Quigley is on a mission. We told you about this guy early in his career and we will tell you again. Jason Quigley is on his way to a title in the very near future.

Me and Manny Robles were ready to go all ten rounds if necessary, said Jason Quigley. He wanted the knock out more than I did he was coming forward and risking heavy punches to his own detriment. We are 110% ready for anything that is coming in the future.

Middleweight Yamaguchi Falcao (12-0, 6 KOs) watched German Perez (11-3-3, 3 KOs) trip over his own feet and turn his back and fall into the ropes like a helpless lump, and that was in the first twenty seconds of the fight. Meanwhile Falcoa landed a couple meaningless blows but it was apparent Perez was toast. The ref stopped the fight at the 27 second mark of the first. The WBC Latino middleweight title was on the line but in all honesty this one should be declared a No Contest. Maybe once Perez learns to put one foot in front of the other without snapping his stick they can redo this one.

Although landed punches had nothing to do with this fight Falcoa still wanted to take some credit.I wasnt expecting getting the knock out so early. Said Yamaguchi Falcoa. I kept my distance and just looked for the perfect opportunity to land an overhead punch, and when I did I felt that I hurt him and unleashed on him. I cant wait to start 2017 rejuvenated and at a top notch level.

Super Featherweight Carlos Morales (15-1-3, 6 KOs) was given all he could handle and more from Charles Huerta (18-5, 11 KOs). A Huerta left hook had Morales down in round eight and in trouble, but somehow Morales survived. The fight then went the distance and after building an early lead Morales took a close split decision. Scores read 96-93 for Huerta and 95-94 & 96-93 in favor of Morales who grabbed the WBA-NABA super featherweight title.

Im glad I get to take the belt back home, said Carlos Morales. He was on his game, and it was a tough fight. I was caught completely off guard by his left hook, and I think that slowed me down, and the cut on my nose was a result of four hard rounds of boxing.

Lightweight Christian Gonzalez (16-0, 13 KOs) took out Jonathan Perez (36-16, 28 KOs) in round three of a pretty lopsided affair. The bout was stopped at the 24 second mark of the third.

My plan was to go in to the ring and practice what I had worked on in the gym, which was working on my jab, said Christian Gonzalez. We knew we were facing an experienced opponent, and not much would surprise him, but my team and I trained hard on our plan and Im very happy to have taken the knockout.

Lightweight Ryan Garcia (7-0, 6 KOs) made the most of his first fight under the Golden Boy banner as he destroyed Jose Antonio Martinez (6-8, 5 KOs) inside of two rounds. Garcia had Martinez down in round one and then dropped him early in round two before laying the leather on him for good and getting the job complete at the two minute mark. It was only a brief look but Garcia appears to be the real deal. Keep an eye on this one.

I was a little nervous since this was my first timer as a Golden Boy Fighter, said Ryan Garcia. I set him up perfectly for me to utilize my straight jab, and found a way to maneuver his awkward style. Im going to look back at the tape and just keep on improving and taking off my Golden Boy career.

Featherweight Joet Gonzalez (15-0, 6 KOs) opened the night with a fourth round KO over Jairo Ochoa (17-11, 9 KOs).

Im glad we got the stoppage in the fourth round. Said Joet Gonzalez. I was expecting him to come forward more, and I think he was a bit cautious of my power blows. Overall, Im satisfied with my performance tonight.

Lightweight Ivan Delgado (11-0-1, 4 KOs) stopped Roberto Carlos Rivera (6-4, 5 KOs) in sixth round.

I feel great about my win, I knew I had to keep at my opponent in order to secure the knockout, said Ivan Delgado. I went heavy on the offensive, and I hadnt studied my opponent much beforebut I knew it wasnt going to be an easy fight. Next stop is a state title in 2017.
