Unknown 21-year old Lightweight Fernando Carcamo (10-3, 7 KO) of Ciudad Obregon, Sonora, Mexico, took a big step towards increasing knowledge of his game on Saturday night at the Santa Ana Star Casino in Albuquerque, New Mexico, with a stunning three knockdown second round stoppage of previously undefeated hometown favorite Fidel Maldonado Jr. (13-1, 11 KO).  

Both men came in blow the Lightweight limit of 135 lbs., Maldonado at 134 and Carcamo at 132 ½. 

Both men came out with serious intention in the first, Maldonado seemingly to send the message Carcamo did not impress him. Carcamo gave him reason to be impressed late in the opening round.  Countering a lazy left jab, Carcamo struck with a picturesque left uppercut to deposit Maldonado on the floor.

Shaking off the cobwebs, Maldonado came off the floor and swung with all his heart to keep Carcamo honest into the bell, the crowd roaring their appreciation for the effort and the local son.

Still brave, it was Maldonado out of the corner first to start round two.  Bravery sometimes has its rewards.  Saturday was not one of those nights. 

Carcamo calmly slid away from a Maldonado attack and settled against the ropes.  Again taking advantage of a hanging hand, this time the left, Carcamo used the left uppercut to drop Maldonado to all fours.  Rocked badly and using his right glove top pull himself up on the ropes, Maldonado beat the count at the toll of six.  Signs of blood around his nostrils, he nodded to go on. 

A right almost dropped him in the corner right away, but was waved off as a slip on the ring paint.  He jumped right back into the fray, taking a left and letting loose a three punch attempt before grabbing Carcamo.  An exchange of left hooks favored Carcamo and another left drove Maldonado to the ropes.  One final Carcamo left sent Maldonado falling along the strands and into the arms of the referee at 1:10 of the second round. 

A cornerman could be heard yelling after the fight, “Remember the name.  Fernando Carcamo.”  It sounded like wise advice. 

Fans got their money’s worth in a wild swinging swing bout and 22-year old Middleweight Jesus Correa Jr. (1-0), 160, of Albuquerque, New Mexico, earned a successful professional debut in a bout that brought the fans to their feet repeatedly.  20-year old fellow townsman 20-year old Charles Alderete (1-2), 160, never stopped winging and could hold his head high even as the final scores came in at 39-37 and 40-36 twice for Correa.

The televised card opened with a crowd-pleasing thrashing.

33-year old Welterweight tough guy Hector Munoz (19-7-1, 12 KO), 146 ½, of Albuquerque, New Mexico, came out on fire from the start and 28-year old John Revish (10-6-2, 8 KO), 146, of Golden Meadow, Louisiana, had no answer before succumbing on his feet in round three. 

With the great Johnny Tapia working his corner, Munoz closed the show with a vicious left-handed assault.  A left along the ropes forced Revish to hold, even briefly turning his back to retreat before Munoz used two clipping rights to force him to the ropes where another left hook found Revish’s head.  A left uppercut landed in close and Revish’s fighting spirit left him.  Turning his back again, the referee wisely waved the matter complete at 1:30 of the third.

The card was televised in the U.S. on Telefutura as part of its “Solo Boxeo” series, promoted by Golden Boy Promotions.

Nice seeing that arrogant little punk a$$ B1tch get his welcomed KO loss. When a guy sticks his tongue out, he needs a dose of humility and he got his. Nothing more joyful than seeing a punk unbeaten fighter get blown away.

He got KTFO'd out of his Chucks....literally he was actually wearing converse so in that regard kinda dissappointing he didn't know how to avoid an uppercut he should of been gliding with ease across the ring
