Roman Gonzalez Breaks Down Juan Kantun In Six

By Jake Donovan

FULL REPORT TO COME IN SEPARATE COLUMN...

Roman Gonzalez continues his quest for a title in a third weight class, as the unbeaten flyweight stopped Juan Kantun in the 6th round of a stay-busy bout Saturday evening in Tapachula, Mexico. 

Three knockdowns were scored in the deciding sixth round, the last of three resulting in a nine-count leading to a referee stoppage.

The time was 1:01 of round six. 

Former 115 lb. titlist Rodrigo Guerrero scored a minor upset with a 7th round stoppage of Daniel Rosas. The bout was by far the best of the weekend, with Rosas rallying from a horrible start to make a fight of it, but was ultimately worn down late in round seven.

Javier Cifuentes' pro debut was nowhere nearly as memorable as his brother Jose, as he was stopped in four rounds by Luis Nery in their televised preliminary bout. 

Nery looked every bit the part of an unbeaten prospect having his way with a debutant, boxing early and pouring on the power as the fight progressed. A series of left hooks lare in round four had Cifuentes in trouble, prompting the stoppage.

The official time was 2:10 of round four. Nery advances to 11-0 (7KO); Cifuentes is now 0-1 (0KO).

In the opening bout of the telecast, Naciff Castillo and debuting Jose Cifuentes fought to a six-round draw. Scores were 58-56 Castillo (17-5-2, 5KO), 58-56 Cifuentes (0-0-1, 0KO) and 57-57 even.

The Guerrero vs Rosas was a war, I watched it on tv. It was very entertaining.

Flyweight is a good time to start airing him since it is one of the more stacked divisions. Man... if Arum could start putting him in Macao, that'd be awesome. That way he'd be on HBO

Gonzalez won KO6 And yes why one of the networks namely HBO wouldn't want to try and scoop up a Gonzalez fight and put some money to get one of the names around his weight to fight is beyond me.

Gonzalez put on a clinic! He is looking good in his new weight class. Hopefully bigger things to come.
