By Ken Hissner: At the AT&T Center in San Antonio, TX, Saturday, over ZONE in the Main Event, former WBO World Super Middleweight champion unbeaten Gilberto “Zurdo” Ramirez in a war stopped Cuban Yunieski Gonzalez scoring his forty-third straight win in the tenth round. In the co-feature, Super Featherweight Lamont Roach defeated Rene “Gemelo” Alvarez of Nicaragua in a war!
In the Main Event, former WBO Super Middleweight champion and No. 2 WBA ranked southpaw Gilberto “Zurdo” Ramirez, 43-0 (29), #174.4, of Mazatlin, Sinaloa, MEX, stopped Cuban Yunieski “The Monster” Gonzalez, 21-4 (17), #173.8, of Miami, FL, at 1:23 in the tenth round in a title eliminator scheduled for 12 rounds.
In the first round, Gonzalez started fast and had a good round. Known as a fast starter Gonzalez lived up to his reputation. He rocked Ramirez just before the bell. In the second round, Ramirez got into it, with Gonzalez scoring well. His corner urged him after the first round to match him punch for punch.
In the third round, it turned into a war! Ramirez didn’t hold back but went after Gonzalez. Without a warning, referee Rafael Ramos took a point from Gonzalez for holding. In the fourth round, the war continued with Ramirez having Gonzalez out on his feet. The latter would come back with a solid punch rocking Ramirez.
In between rounds, the corner of Gonzalez almost stopped it. Gonzalez came out firing for two minutes out punching Ramirez, landing half a dozen punches at a time. Ramirez took over the final minute against the always dangerous Gonzalez. In the sixth round, Ramirez had his easiest round with little return from Gonzalez.
In the seventh round, Gonzalez seemed to purposely use his head against the chin of Ramirez, who had a bad round after that. In the eighth round, Ramirez started boxing, not punching. Mixing it with Gonzalez is not smart. Ramirez’s face looks more like the loser than the winner.
In the ninth round, Ramirez stayed boxing with little mixing it up taking the round. In the tenth round, Ramirez continued boxing until he rocked Gonzalez with a left on the chin. He immediately went after the finish and had Gonzalez out on his feet when the referee came in to stop it landing seven out of ten punches to the head.
In the co-feature “The Reaper,” Lamont Roach, Jr., 22-1-1 (9), #129.8, of Upper Marllboro, MD, in a war defeated former WBC Silver champion Rene “Gemelo” Alvarado, 32-11 (21), #129.6, of Managua, NIC, over ten rounds, for the WBA NABA Super Feather title.
In the first round, it was all Roach. In the second and third rounds, Alvarado came back well, taking the fourth round. From the fifth through the seventh, Roach countered well enough to take all four rounds.
In the eighth round, both scored well enough to hurt one another. In the ninth round, both fighters let it all hang out, taking turns rocking each other. Roach landed a good body shot and had Alvarado’s face swelling under both eyes.
In the tenth and final round, he left cheek of Alvarado’s started bleeding along with his nose. He did well with his right and Roach with his left hooks. It was a war the entire fight.
Scores were 100-90, 98-92 twice with this writer the same.
2012 Olympic Bronze Medalist WBC World Female Flyweight champion Marlen Esparza, 11-1 (1), of Houston, TX, defeated Anabel “Avispa” Ortiz, 31-5 (4), of Mexico City, MEX, over 10×2 rounds.
In the first round, Esparza got the better of Ortiz in a round of jabs. In the second round, Esparza scored a questionable knockdown over Ortiz for an 8-count. In the fifth round, Esparza pulled by the neck Ortiz down, and somehow the referee ruled a knockdown.
In the seventh round, Ortiz made it rough since Esparza has been getting away with it. In the eighth and ninth rounds, Ortiz made it close and may have won her first two rounds.
In the tenth and final round, it went down to the finish with both letting it all hangout. Ortiz, knowing she needed a knockout, tried her best trying to overcome the two false knockdowns.
Scores were 100-88, 95-94, and 99-90.
WBA World Female Mini Champion “Super Bad” Seneisa Estrada, 22-0 (9), #104.6, of East L.A., CA, impressed in her defense stopping game Maria “El Imparable” Micheo Santizo, 9-1 (5), #103.8, of Guatemala City, Guatemala, at 1:51 of the fourth round of a scheduled 10×2 rounds.
In the first round, Estrada would land three punches, and Santizo would come right back with two all body shots from both in an action round. In the second round, both would switch from orthodox to southpaw and back.
Estrada used a good body attack landing two to one against Santizo’s punches in another all-action round. In the third round, a hard right from Santizo on the chin was countered by a left hook from Estrada on the chin scoring a knockdown.
Upon rising, Estrada was all over her, but Santizo fought back enough to get through the round even though a right from Estrada drove her into the ropes, which should have been scored a knockdown.
In the fourth round, both mixed it well when a left hook from Estrada lashed out on the chin, dropping Santizo. The referee immediately stopped it. Estrada is something special!
