  Jerson Aguilar Beats Marcos Rodriguez
By Unanimous Decision

Jerson Aguilar defeated Marcos "El Mudo" Rodríguez by unanimous decision, 96-93, 97-94 and 96-93, to become the new WBA Latin Lightweight Champion last night on EstrellaTV’s monthly boxing series, Boxeo EstrellaTV. The series occurs on the last Friday of every month and is broadcast from BB Auditorium in Mexico City.

In the fiery main event, the courage and bravery of Rodríguez put a dramatic and exciting touch to a fight that had Jerson using medium and long ground to establish his fight, and Marcos fighting back, always exchanging blows.

Dropping blows and not being a fixed target throughout the fight was the strategy for Jerson’s - it made it difficult for Rodriguez to effectively respond until the fifth round.

Tired, Aguilar was forced to exchange blows in the short field, and that was when the balance began to tip in favor of Rodriguez, who got Jerson in trouble on at least three occasions to the brink of knockout, forcing the hug and buying time to survive the round.

For the ninth and tenth rounds, the fight went from power punch to power punch in search of a knockout; the judges gave Aguilar the decision, winning his first professional boxing title (though he won the 2014 edition of the now-defunct Gold Belt).

The evening continued with a 10-round super featherweight fight, as Jalisco’s Edgar “El Diablo” Espinoza defeated Jalisco’s Jorge Luis Martínez by technical knockout at 1:46 in the ninth round.

Michoacán’s Edwin “Canito” Cano won by unanimous decision over Luis Guadalupe “Kenso Juárez” Méndez, 60-54, 59-55 and 60-54, four-rounds at flyweight.

Mexico City’s Edwin Antonio Gutiérrez could not beat Japan’s Takumu “Taquito” Hosooka, who prevailed by unanimous decision, 36-40, 37-39 and 36-40, in a four-round featherweight fight.

Roberto "Jaguar" Nava Diaz Sandi of the State of Mexico was knocked out by Ismael "Borrego" Aviles from the State of Mexico in just 36 seconds of the first round, fighting in four rounds at super lightweight.

Eric Xavier “TNT” Fuentes of Mexico City defeated Andree “Junior” Ocaña Álvarez of Mexico City by unanimous decision, 39-37, 39-37 and 39-38, in four-rounds at light flyweight.

Alexis Antonio “Wonder Boy” Velázquez of State of Mexico was defeated by Puebla’s Francisco “Chito” Rodríguez, 36-39, 37-39 and 37-39, in a four-round super lightweight fight.
