David Sanchez, Carlos Cuadras, Gilberto Parra Win
By Jake Donovan
Estadio Hector Espino in Hermosillo, Sonora, Mexico - David “Tornado” Sanchez (23-2-0, 18 KOs) knocked out Omar “Metralleta” Rosales (18-4-1, 15 KOs) in the fifth round of a super flyweight fight.
In the co-feature, super flyweight Carlos Cuadras (26-0-0, 22 KOs) captured the WBC's silver title with a seventh round TKO over Ronald Barrera (31-10-2, 19 KOs). Cuadras currently serves as the number one contender to the title currently held by super flyweight champion Yato Soto.
The TV Azteca televised main event saw junior flyweight contender Gilberto Parra rack up his fifth straight knockout after stopping Jesus Hernandez in the second round of their co-feature attraction.
The bout was never competitive on paper or in reality. Parra towered over the 5'1" Hernandez, who was caught and dropped early in the fight and never truly recovered. Constant pressure was applied by Parra on his diminutive foe before putting him away in round two.
Parra advances to 11-1 (11KO) with the win. The lone loss of his career is also the only team he has ever been extended the distance.
Hernandez has now lost three of his last four as he falls to 4-4 (1KO).
With plenty of time to kill on the telecast, Drian Francisco (22-1, 18KO) made the most of unexpected airtime with a first round knockout of Jose Carlos Vargas (12-7-1, 7KO). Two knockdowns was enough to do in Vargas, who was given the full ten count towards the end of the opening round.
Middleweight prospect Jose Uzcategui was relentless in stopping Octavio Castro in the third round of their televised opener.
Uzcategui brought the power from the opening bell, overwhelming Castro in every exchange. The fight was mercifully stopped after Castro was drilled into the ropes and deemed unfit to continue.
The official time was 0:53 of round three.
Uzcategui remains unbeaten as a pro as he advances to 15-0 (12KO). His past four wins have all come by knockout, all in the span of the past five months.
Castro is now winless in his last seven bouts (0-6-1) as he falls to 14-11-1 (9KO) overall.
Noe Lopez Jr. evened up his record at .500 with a split decision win over Mario Cruz in their six-round super featherweight bout. Scores were 58-56 (twice) for Lopez and 58-57 for Cruz. Lopez Jr. is now 11-11 (6KO); Cruz falls to 7-9 (2KO).
Edgar Ramirez (12-5, 10KO) extended his win streak to nine straight - all inside the distance - after scoring a 2nd round knockout of Miguel Lazcano (7-11, 4KO) in a televised swing bout. A body shot caused Lazcano to drop to his knees for the full ten count. The official time was 1:16 of round two.
