Dante Jardon Stops Tellez In Two For 17th Straight Win
By Jake Donovan Rising super featherweight prospect Dante “Crazy” Jardon scored a second round knockout of Adrian Tellez on Friday evening at Jose Cuervo Salon in Polanco, Mexico. The official time was 1:27 of the second round. Jardon scored three knockdowns in the abbreviated affair, including one in the opening round that threatened to end the fight. A right hookercut floored Tellez hard, though he was barely able to beat the referee’s count and somehow found a way to survive the round and fight on. It was a noble gesture by Tellez, though merely prolonged the inevitable. Jardon went to work in the second, hammering his opponent with power shots upstairs, including a right hand, left hook combination to deposit him into a neutral corner. Tellez once again beat the count but found himself flat on his back moments later courtesy of a right uppercut. The shot was enough to prompt the referee to jump in and wave off the bout without issuing a count. The win is the fourth of a very busy 2011 campaign for Jardon, who cruises to 18-1 (16KO). His lone loss came in the second fight of his career, having since racked up 17 straight, having only twice been extended beyond the third round. Tellez has now dropped three of his last four as he falls to 11-8-1 (8KO). The bout served as the live televised main event on Telemundo.
In other televised action:
Hector Morales (8-4-2, 3KO) scored a major upset with a second round knockout of Josue Veraza (10-2-1, 9KO). A toe-to-toe exchange at center ring saw both fighters score with money shots. Morales ate a right hand but managed to duck the incoming left hook, coming right back with a combination of his own to stun Veraza and eventually force the stoppage.

Jardon is a great mexican prospect to look out for. He has crazy power and good hand speed. He needs to settle down bc he can sometime get wild. But he has some good wins already koed rodela.
