Andres Gutierrez, Canelo's Brother Gets Wins in Queretaro

By Luis Sandoval

Golden Boy Promotions and Canelo Promotions put on a fight card on the 4th of July holiday weekend which took place at the Auditorio General Arteaga in Queretaro, Mexico.

In the main event, Andres Gutierrez (27-0-1, 22KOs) put on an impressive performance and won a unanimous decision over tough Rey Perez (17-4, 3KOs) in front of his hometown crowd.

At only 19 years old and one of the most promising prospects under the Canelo Promotions umbrella, Gutierrez put on a dominant performance where he displayed his solid skill set.  Gutierrez has shown he can fight very aggressive but he fought more measured fight against Perez who is regarded as a more technical fighter.

The contest started out fast as both men mounted their attacks right away with each taking turns landing to the head and body. Perez fought Gutierrez evenly over 2 rounds but that’s as good as it would get for the Filipino fighter as it was Gutierrez who would take over the fight.

Gutierrez pressed the action all night long as he threw in combinations and really showed his hand speed as Perez simply could not keep up. The weapon of choice for Gutierrez was his uppercut and he landed some flush ones that had you wondering how Perez managed to stay on his feet. For being only a prospect and very young, Gutierrez fought with plenty of discipline and was very accurate with his attack; most of that could be traced back to his long time trainer Chepo Reynoso who also trains Saul “Canelo” Alvarez.

By the 6th round, Perez’s face was showing the damage Gutierrez had inflicted and had slowed down considerably. The Mexican native continued to pressure and trap Perez against the ropes and unloaded his combinations as Perez could only cover up and try to move out of harms way.

After going 12 rounds for the first time in his career, Gutierrez scored a lop sided unanimous decision and was very impressive in doing so. For a fighter who has shown in the past he can brawl, he showed he can also box and blend his offense and defense effectively.

With his performance tonight Gutierrez definitely proved to be a prospect to keep an eye on.

Opening the Fox Deportes telecast was Ricardo “Dinamita” Alvarez (21-2-3, 13KOs) who won a majority decision over Reyes Sanchez (24-5-2, 14KOs) with scores of 114-114 and 115-113 and 119-109 in favor of Alvarez.

Ricardo, the older brother of superstar Canelo Alvarez, found himself in a close fight as Sanchez pressed the action early and often. Both worked at close quarters and while they let their hands go, the action simply wasn’t scintillating enough for the crowd on hand who booed the action on various occasions.

Alvarez managed to land some hard shots to his opponent as it was Sanchez’s nose that bled throughout the contest but Sanchez never let up on his attack. Sanchez continued to press forward as Alvarez fought most of the fight on his back foot. In a fight that was very close, it would be Alvarez who would get rewarded with the majority decision with the third scorecard of 119-109 simply being way too wide for what transpired in the ring.

I'm sure no one cares, but Reyes Sanchez was robbed blind.
