Marrufo Decisions Yanez at Mayhem in Mesa Event

By Tim Kudgis

Arizona Event Center, Mesa, Arizona - The main event of the evening between featherweights Jose Marrufo and David Yanez was an absolute war.  Marrufo used his pure unadulterated power to control the action but the very game Yanez kept coming forward.  Marrufo dominated the steel chinned Yanez who never showed signs of slowing down. 

Yanez was not able to take advantage of the looping power punches throughout the fight.  There were many instances Yanez could have turned the fight around but it was Marrufo's power that controlled the action.  Marrufo soldiered through a tremendous cut early in the bout and his corner did a fantastic job of keeping it under control throughout the fight.  The judges scored the fight 60-54 x 3  in favor of Marrufo.
