Quigley Over Hernandez In Bloody Battle
By William Trillo
Middleweight Jason Quigley (15-0, 11 KO’s) was given all the
seasoned veteran Freddy Hernandez (34-10, 22 KO’s) could
dish out, and then some. The bloody 10 round brawl went to
the scorecards that read 98-92 twice and 99-91 all in favor
of Quigley who retains his NABF Middleweight Title.
Welterweight Eddie Gomez (22-3, 12 KO’s) pitched a shutout
against Shoki Sakai (22 -9-2, 12 KO’s) on the 8 round
co-main event. Faster of hands and feet Gomez used rapid
fire punching to keep his foe at bay all night. Gomez took
the tallies on all cards 80-72.
In a rematch lightweights Rey Perez (24-10, 8 KO’s) and
Christian Gonzalez (19-3, 15 KO’s) met once again in the
squared circle. Perez won the first fight handily but was
not faring too well against Gonzalez in this scrap. After 6
rounds scorecards had Gonzalez ahead 58-56 twice and 59-55.
But there were two more rounds ahead and that’s when Perez
cracked Gonzalez and beat him until Chimpa’s corner through
in the towel. Officially the battle was stopped at the 2:15
mark of round seven giving Perez yet another victory over
Super lightweight Angel Ruiz (11-0, 9 KO’s) had to chase an
awkward Jonathan Fortuna (8-3, 5 KO’s) around the ring for a
while but once he caught him Ruiz dropped Fortuna like a bag
of dirt. For the record Ruiz won by KO at the 1:40 mark of
Super featherweight Elnur Abduraimov (2-0, 2 KO’s) pummeled
Giovannie Gonzalez (5-3, 5 KO’s) for a round and a half
before the battle was brought to a merciful halt at the 2:38
mark of round 2.
Featherweight Edgar Ortega (10-1-2, 5 KO’s) outworked Recky
Dulay (11-4, 8 KO’s) over the course of six rounds and was
rewarded handsomely for his hard work. Duly, who came in as
the favorite, did little to improve his stock as he rarely
let his hands go all night. Final scores read 57-56 and
58-55 twice giving Ortega the upset nod.
Super featherweight Rommel Caballero (4-0,3 KO’s) KO’d Jorge
Hugo Padron (3-3,3 KO’s) in the first round.
