Jose Nieves Makes Quick Work Of Alejandro Delgado

By Jake Donovan

Jose Nieves enjoyed a rare early night's work in scoring a quick stoppage of Alejandro Delgado in their regional super bantamweight title bout Friday evening at the Kissimmee (FL) Civic Center. 

The action was all one way from the opening bell, as Nieves (20-2-3, 9KO) immediately jumped on Delgado (15-7, 7KO). The Puerto Rican southpaw never let up, unloading with power shots until the referee intervened in honoring the wishes of Delgado's corner to have the slaughter halted.

The early ending marked the first stoppage for Nieves in nearly eight years, having won eight fights by decision over the course of the 11-fight stretch (8-2-1, 0KO). Nieves has now won three straight and continues to inch closer towards a major title fight.

In the televised co-feature, Jorge Melendez (22-2-1, 21KO) scored an impressive fifth round stoppage of Marcus Willis (11-2-2, 3KO). Melendez was pitching a shutout through four rounds before flooring Willis in the fifth for the bout's lone knockdown. Willis remained on the canvas for the full ten count.

Local favorite Luis Torres won a clear four-round decision over Juan Aguirre. Scores were 40-36 (twice) and 39-37. Torres (3-1-2, 1KO) was in control throughout the welterweight swing bout, though Aguirre (5-9-1, 0KO) enjoyed his moments of success. 

Robert Burwell (1-0, 0KO) won a disputed unanimous decision over Tim Parker (0-1, 0KO) in a matchup of pro debuting middleweights. Scores were 39-37 across the board for Burwell, who hails from nearby Orlando but still endured a healthy amount of booing from the crowd once the decision was announced. 

The show was presented by All-Star Boxing and aired live on Telemundo.
