The fists of Oscar Ibarra and Jhonny Gonzalez exploded into the humanity of their dangerous rivals on Saturday night in the gym "Manuel Priego" of Campeche, Mexico, before a very vibrant crowd that cheered on the spectacular successes of these Mexican boxers.
Ibarra destroyed Panama's Carlos Melo in six rounds. While Gonzalez, who proved to be ready to fight again a world title, stopped Colombian Aristides Perez in two rounds.
Ibarra became the new WBC world silver champion in 2 minutes and 26 seconds of the sixth round when international referee Lupe Garcia stopped the action at the time Ibarra was punishing Melo with two strong hands as fans watched at the Mexican capital.
Ibarra twice got into the ropes to bomb Melo, in the first and in the fourth round, but the bell saved the American boxer. However, he lost his balance reaching down and put a glove on the canvas, a knockdown that was not official.
Jhonny Gonzalez endorsed his WBC Fecarbox Featherweight Title in a short but exciting fight that got up to enthusiastic audience that never fail to support their countrymen.
From the first bell, the South American boxer went out to get the jaw of Jhonny Gonzalez, but his guard remained impenetrable, and when the time was right the Aztec boxer began unloading his shots.
A powerful left that crashed into the face of Aristides Perez began the collapse of the Colombian who was bleeding from the nose after going down, although more damage would be earned and he should have remained on the canvas because the former champion of the world began to launch everything, with intelligence, to finish it.
Again a left hook around the body badly hurt the challenger who took refuge on the ropes to be slaughtered with shots until the referee stepped in to save him.
