Dante Jardon Resumes 'Crazy' Ways, Stops Martinez in 1

By Jake Donovan

It took for a new network to unearth the old ways of “Crazy” Dante Jardon.

The all-action super featherweight prospect made quick work of Humberto Martinez, ending matters in the opening round of their Telemundo-televised main event Friday evening at Salon Jose Cuervo in Polanco, Mexico.

Jardon (16-1-1, 14KO) scored two knockdowns en route to his seventh career first-round knockout. All of his knockouts have come in four rounds or less.

The bout was Jardon’s first on Telemundo airwaves, having previously served as a regular on Mexican cable giant Televisa.

Despite the presence of a new network, the bout came in familiar surroundings as Jardon played the Salon Jose Cuervo for the third straight time. It also served as his pro debut and four of his first five pro fights.

One of those fights also resulted in his lone career loss, coming in his second pro bout. He has since scored 15 straight wins, though his two non-knockout verdicts came in each of his last two contests.

Such was not the case on Friday evening, as Martinez (20-6-1, 14KO) never had a prayer of standing up to Jardon’s power, nor did he seem particularly intent on even attempting. A pair of knockdowns sent the Colombian home with his second straight loss.

Martinez is now 0-3 outside of his native Colombia, with all three fights ending inside of the distance. His previous road trips ended in a pair of sixth round knockouts, including a defeat at the hands of future - and now ex-featherweight - champion Jorge Linares.

Jardon is a long way from championship status or even making a serious run towards one. But at the very least, the fun is back in his career as he resumes his knockout ways.
