7th Bout Featherweights 10 Rounds
Juan Carlos Burgos vs. Gilberto Sanchez Leon

Burgos and Leon both proud and valiant Mexican pugilist’s one from Tijuana and the other from Mexicali will prove to be a spectacular main event. Burgos with a record of 26-1, 19KO’s is a tenacious warrior. “Mini” is a good name for him which proves that dynamite comes in small packages. His opponent Leon (Spanish for lion) with a record of 29-10-2, 11KO’s is one of Mexicali’s proudest sons and is as tenacious as his name. Both fighters took their time feeling one another out and throwing punches intended to feel out the others defenses but for the most part was very uneventful.

The momentum picked up in the second round with Leon throwing very effective body shots and working his way up to the head of Burgos. Burgos not to be out done countered back with his own flurry of punches to the body and head with very effective straight rights and lefts. As the bell sounded for the third stanza Leon picked up the pace as Burgos answered the challenge.

Referee Ray Corona gave both fighters a warning perhaps for not breaking when called to break. At the time of the fifth round the fight seems to be on an equal footing. Burgos was cautioned for a low blow and Leon was allowed time to recover. Near the end of the 5th Leon was cautioned about punching behind the head. At the beginning of the next round it appears that Burgos is somewhat sluggish, not quite as polished as in previous fights. Both fighters trade blow for blow working from top to bottom, and vice versa.

With the start of the seventh Leon comes out very aggressive as if really trying to dominate the fight. Burgos appears very lack luster and seems a bit timid at times. Sitting in the corner Burgos looks somewhat frustrated with his performance. Leon continues to put on the pressure throwing combinations with some effectiveness. The ninth round action still finds Burgos making a lack luster performance allowing Leon to dominate the round. Leon backs Burgos into a corner and starts hammering away. He spins out of the corner only to be cornered on the ropes and back into Leon’s corner at the sound of the bell.

Round ten, Burgos finally is picking up the pace perhaps sensing he could lose this fight. Leon continues to do his best to make sure he does. Burgos stays on the ropes and accepts more punishment. Leon attempts to pour it on while Burgos seems content with taking blows to the head and body. Neither fighter appears that great.
