Gonzalez Shocks Oliveira, Yuri Foreman Drills Gomez

HOLLYWOOD, Fla. - Mexican invader Norberto "Demonio" Gonzalez (20-2, 13 KOs) upset hometown favorite Michael "The Brazilian Rocky" Oliveira (21-2, 16 KOs) in the main event of tonight's "Knockout Night at Hard Rock Live" card, presented by MO Productions, at Hard Rock Live at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida.

Gonzalez' quick hands overcame Oliviera's power for a unanimous 10-round decision (97-91, 97-91, 96-92) victory in a very entertaining fight.  Oliveira dropped Gonzalez in the second round with a right cross, but Gonzalez closed the show in the 10th, sending Oliveira to the canvas.  The tough 23-year-old Brazilian, rated No. 7 by the WBA and No. 11 by the WBC, beat the 10-count right before the final bell.

In the co-feature, former World Boxing Association (WBA) junior middleweight Yuri Foreman (32-2, 9 KOs) registered his first knockout since 2006, blasting out Mexican opponent Javier "Pelon" Gomez (14-12, 10 KOs) with a perfectly placed left hook at 1:56 of the opening round.  Gomez went down hard and failed to move for a few anxious moments."

"It's been quite a few years," Foreman said about his impressive knockout.  "I pray that he's okay.  Now, I'm ready for a 10-round fight." 

Fast-rising Cuban light heavyweight prospect Yunieski "The Diamond" Gonzalez (13-0, 9 KOs) overcame a flash knockdown to stop a game Jinner Guerrero (7-2, 6 KOs) in the eighth round.  Gonzalez unloaded a devastating, straight right hand that ended the fight in the eighth round.

Cuban featherweight Hairon "El Maja" Socarras (8-0, 5 KOs) kept his perfect record intact, pitching a six-round shutout for a unanimous decision win against former world title challenger Jhon Alberto Molina (32-27-3, 20 KOs).

Another unbeaten Cuban, southpaw Vilier Gonzalez (6-0, 4 KOs), floored super middleweight Marcus "The Gatekeeper" Brooks (7-15-1, 3 KOs) at the end of the second round, after which Brooks failed to answer the bell for the third.

Heavyweight Robert Alfonso (3-0), a 2008 Cuban Olympian, remained undefeated, defeating Jamal "Knockout" Woods (3-9-1, 3 KOs) by way of a four-round decision.

Bahamian lightweight Valentino Knowles improved his record to 2-0 with a unanimous four-round decision over Ruben "El Chino" Ozuma (1-1).

Cruiserweight Steve Geffard (1-3, 1 KOs) notched his first professional win against Jamel Burnside (1-1, 1 KO) when the referee halted the action in the third round.

Oliviera got bartered by a much smaller, old & out of the ring for 6 years Frietas. Let's be honest, he's not going too far. Good luck to him & I'll be happy if he proves me wrong.
