Ivan Morales Knocks Out Manuel Jiminez in Two Rounds
By Miguel Rivera
Casino Hipodromo Agua Caliente, Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico - Undefeated Ivan Morales (23-0, 13KOs) needed only two rounds to put away Manuel Jiminez (13-4-1, 7KOs) and retained the WBC International silver super flyweight championship. Ivan, the young brother of former four division champion Erik Morales, was too strong for Jiminez and punished him with hard power shots. Morales is hoping to land a major shot at a world title in 2014, following in the footsteps of his famous older brother.
