Marco Antonio Periban, Sergio Villanueva Win in Jalisco

By Miguel Rivera & James Blears

Arena VFG, Guadalajara, Mexico - Mexico City based Light heavyweight prospect Marco Antonio Periban won a unanimous decison against tough as nails Alfredo Contreras.
 
Undefeated Marco Antonio (13-0, 10 KO's) looked set to make it a quick night's work, decking Northerner Alfredo from Los Mochis, Sinaloa (11-10, 5 KO's) with a short clipping right hand in round one. It was mostly one way traffic until round six when Marco started to tire, and defiant Alfredo briefly gave him a torried, backing him into the ropes and finally landing some telling combinations.
 
The earlier pep had left Marco's fists and he drew a roar of anger from the crowd, clearly wacking Alfredo well after the bell for the end of round seven. Guided by sage veteran trainer Al Stankie in his corner, Marco's nose was leaking blood, but he made amends in the final round, snapping his opponent's head back with a peach of a right hook, and drove him back with a torrent of punches. But the Sinaloan showed mettle to make it to the bell, in the oven like heat.

Sergio "Cuatito" Villanueva captured the World Youth featherweight championship of the World Boxing Council (WBC) by winning a ten round unanimous decision over Colombia's Onalvi Sierra. Villanueva (19-1-2, 12 KOs) landed the better punches and punished Sierra (21-5-1, 18 KOs) to the body. The scores were 98-92, 96-94 and 99-92.
 
MORE RESULTS

Experienced Jesus Jimenez effectively knocked out Patricio Camacho in the third round (1:18 minutes). Jimenez knocked his opponent down twice, first with a powerful left the body and then later with a definitive blow to the head. Jesus Jimenez raised his record to 32-7, 23 KOs.

For his part, Carlos Perez suffered the first career setback at the hands of Cesar Figueroa by TKO in the second round.
 
While the Welshman Gary Buckland won a unanimous decision over Mexico's Jose Gonzalez.

Canelo has improved since his last fight. He was slipping punches and his head movement was much better than the Hatton fight. Always good to see a young fighter get better with every fight, shows he's been working in camp.

Litzau has a shot, Broner is slicker, but Litzau comes to fight. He could wear Broner down, he's a lot more skilled than Deleon, but he doesn't hit as hard.

[QUOTE=JonoYoungP4P;10714045]Yeah, thats one thing hes got to do isbe more active n throw more shots, put some combos together[/QUOTE] It was like he only threw punches at De Leon if he thought they were going to look good. Bizarre.
