David Sanchez Decisions Breilor Teran To Enter Title Fray

By Jake Donovan

David Sanchez picked up an interim title and his 14th straight win with a 12-round decisoin over Breiolr Teran in their super flyweight title fight Saturday evening in Tijuana, Mexico. 

Scores were 116-111 across the board for Sanchez, who puts himself in prime position for a lucrative payday given the title he claimed. 

Sanchez was given a run for his money at times but was in control for the most part. Teran, at one point a 5-9-1 journeyman whose career was going nowhere fast, never stopped coming forward and made sure to let his hands go whenever the action made its way inside. 

A thrilling round ten proved to be Teran's last hurrah. The Venezuelan fought as if he was very much in the fight, but a flash knockdown suffered in round 11 ultimately sealed his fate. Sanchez wisely boxed the rest of the way, remaining in the pocket but relying on head movement and sharp reflexes to avoid getting caught with anything dramatic.

The win advances Sanchez to 25-2-2 (19KO), while Teran's feel-good story suffers a bump in the road. An eight-fight win streak comes to a close as his record falls to 13-10-1 (6KO). 

Sanchez knows a little something about career resurrection. Once a highly touted prospect, the Mexican boxer ran into rough patches early in his career. Rather than fold and serve as cannon fodder on club shows, Sanchez improved his boxing skills and has developed into a sound boxer-puncher.

The adjustments have produced 14 straight wins and an alphabet title. While many in the industry scoff at the notion of interim titles, Sanchez is now in position to challenge for the real title - held by Kohei Kono - or defend against an even bigger star (even if a hated one) in Koki Kameda, who recently vacated his spot as bantamweight titlist to drop down in weight. 

UNDERCARD

Local favorite Abner Lopez was as calm as an assassin in picking apart a determined Rodolfo Quintanilla en route to a fifth round stoppage.

The camera-ready super lightweight prospect jumped out to an early lead, putting his height and reach advantage to good use. Quintanilla was cut over the left eye and beaten to the punch nearly every time out, but never stopped coming forward in his best effort to make things uncomfortable for the 23-year old boxer. 

A spirited round five saw both fighters enjoy their moments of power-punching success. Quintanilla managed to work his way inside and dig with hooks and overhand rights. Lopez took the punches well, aware of the incoming and scoring brilliantly with uppercuts and left hook counter punches. 

Just as the action picked up, Quintanilla (14-4-3, 11KO) was forced to retire on his stool as his corner informed the referee that their fighter was done prior to the start of round six.

The official time was 3:00 of round five.

Lopez advances to 19-3 (17KO). The majority of his young career has taken place at home in Tijuana, including six of his past seven bouts among his current win streak. 

Ismael Camacho scored an early knockdown to set the tone for a convincing four round decision over Alex Solis. Scores were 39-36 across the board. 

Super featherweight prospect Julio Barraza remains perfect as a pro after stopping Jesus Navarro inside of one round. A flurry of punches had Navarro (21-8-1, 16KO) pinned on the ropes as Barraza unloaded until forcing the stoppage.

The official time was 2:09 of round one. Barraza cruises to 8-0 (8KO), with all of his pro bouts to date ending in three rounds or less.
