Santiago Gets Better of Ramirez, Castro Wins in AZ

By Tim Kudgis

This past Friday night at the Celebrity Theatre in Phoenix, Arizona, IronBoy Promotions presented an exciting night of fights for the AZ fight fans. 

In the main event of the evening, Mayweather Boxing Club's Alexis "Beaver" Santiago (12-3-1) took on local tough guy Jensen Ramirez (2-2-2) in what was a surprisingly close fight over 6 rounds.  Even though, "Beaver" drew proverbial "First Blood" by dropping Ramirez in the 1st round.  The crafty Ramirez would bounce back and bring a war to Santiago.  These too basically went toe to toe for 6 hard rounds with Santiago emerging as the victor on the scorecards in a close decision.  Tough Santiago was victorious many boxing fans in AZ are clamoring for a rematch between the two!

In the co-main event, Victor Castro (8-0) remained undefeated by completely outclassing a usually tough Diamond Baier (2-4-1).  Baier seemed to have no answer for the fast and elusive Castro.  Castro sent Baier to the deck in the 1st round and completely dominated Baier after having him hurt several times throughout the fight.  The judges scored the fight 40-35 across the board in favor of Castro!

Carlos Castro (3-0) made quick worked of the very over matched fighter making his pro debut Eric McNorris (0-1).  With only 2 previous fights on his resume Castro was more experienced and was able to completely outclass McNorris before he stopped him in the 1st round.

Mayweather Boxing Club fighter Lanell Bellows (3-0) completely destroyed Caleb Caldwell (2-7-1).  The first round saw a lot of holding by Caldwell who was trying his best to make it an ugly tough fight for Bellows until Bellows dropped him towards the end of the 1st.  In the 2nd, Bellows smelled blood pouncing on Caldwell and dropping him until Caldwell's corner threw in the towel causing the ref to end the fight at 1:55 in the 2nd round.

Other Results:

Abel Ramos (5-0) UD4 Jeremiah Torres (7-20)
Antonio Moreno (3-1-1) TKO2 Jose Luna (0-1)
Jeremiah Wiggins (1-0) UD4 Jose Martell (2-5-1)
