Juan Reveco Relentless, Stops Ulises Lara In Eight

By Jake Donovan

Juan Carlos Reveco picked up his 14th straight win, stopping Mexico's Ulises Lara in the eighth round of their flyweight title fight Saturday evening in General Alvear, Mendoza, Argentina. 

Reveco scored five knockdowns before prompting a stoppage late in the eighth round of their main event, which aired live on TyC Sports. 

The upside down record boasted by Lara raised several eyebrows as to how he made his way to a title shot. An upset win over Omar Soto didn't necessarily earn the visiting Mexican such an opportunity, but that same spoiler spirit was evident early in the fight. Reveco was never in danger, but had a fight on his hands through the first two rounds.

It didn't take long for the Argentine star to take over. Reveco offered a vicious body attack, breaking down Lara with each passing round. A power punching display finally paid dividends midway through round six, when Reveco floored Lara for the first time in the fight. 

There would have been few complaints had he bout been stopped at that point. The fact that Lara struggled to steady himself as referee Hector Montes ushered him in to continue was evident that the challenger was hardly in condition to continue. Reveco sensed this and immediately pounced on his foe, sending him to the canvas seconds later.

Lara once again rose from the knockdown and was all heart for as long as he was able to fight back. It wasn't very long, however; Reveco eventually beat the fight out of his opponent, flooring him three times before forcing the referee to finally end the rout.

The official time was 2:52 of round eight.

Reveco cruises to 31-1 (17KO), racking up his 14th straight win in the process. The flyweight titlist has proven invincible in his native Argentina; the lone loss of his career came on the road in France way back in 2007 versus former Olympic Gold medalist Brahim Asloum.

Lara falls to 12-14-1 (7KO), ending a two-fight win streak in falling way short in his first bid at an alphabet title.

In the televised co-feature, streaking super lightweight Patricio Pedrero had his way with local southpaw Ramon Munoz (10-21-4, 2KO). Scores of 60-54 across the board accurately portrayed the six rounds of action which took place, as Pedrero was in control every step of the way.

Pedrero advances to 29-4-1 (14KO) with his fourth straight win. He now moves on to a regional title fight against Ignacio Mendoza next month in Germany.
