Saul Alvarez Overwhelms Luciano Cuello, Vicious Beating

By James Blears at ringside

At the Arena VFG in Tlajomulco de Zuniga, Jalisco, Mexico, Saul "Canelo" Alvarez overwhelmed Luciano Principito Cuello from Argentina in six torried one sided rounds. Canelo, who looked awesomely strong, shook Cuello time and again, bloodied his nose and mouth, worked his body and was dominant throughout.

A peach of a left hook dumped Cuello hard in round one, and it could have been all over, but for Cuello's ashen faced courage. Canelo resumed where he left off in round two with a searing left uppercut, followed by a short right, which again dropped the Argentinian. Cuello who's nose was leaking blood was on the retreat and being punished by heavy blows, which sapped his energy and strenth.

A pinpoint left hook in the fourth round wobbled Cuello and Canelo pounded him almost at will. Again in the fifth a left hook nearly dropped Cuello who was looking the worse for wear. A right which was a trifle low, took his breath and the referee allowed a brief respite.

Cuello stood his ground and fought back in the sixth. Canelo retaliated with a rasping right to the ribs which smacked home with such force that it could be heard throughout the stadium. Another massive left to the pit of the stomach almost folded Cuello, and the referee intervened to save the Argentinian who had taken more than enough punishment... and then some.

Rigoberto "Español" Alvarez-the oldest brother of Saul Canelo Alvarez made short work of overmatched Alfredo Treviño. Southpaw Rigoberto (24-2, 18 KO's) decked Alfredo (4-0,1 KO) with a short right hand, and although he got up the referee, waved off the action at 2.15 of the first round.

Pigtailed Tomoki Kameda from Osaka, Japan won the vacant WBC Junior Intercontinental Super Bantamweight title with a unanimous decision against Arturo Camargo of Sinaloa, Mexico.

Technically more proficient, Kameda, who has faster hand speed, fell into the trap of getting tangled up in a leaning match where Camargo landed some body shots and uppercuts. But from the sixth round until the final bell in the tenth, Kameda boxed at the distance landing more effective flurries of combinations to build up the points, against a stocky durable opponent, who didn't start to fade until the last couple of rounds.

Daniel Galeno Sandoval TKO'd Canelo's brother Ramon "Inocente" Alvarez in the second round of their fight for the Jalisco State welterweight belt.  Daniel stood as tall as the Eiffel Tower against Ramon. But it was Ramon who knocked him down a minute from the end of round one with a short left-right combination to the jaw. Daniel then trapped Ramon on the ropes at the start of the second and was connecting with virtually everything. It was then that referee Gelasio Perez stopped the fight after twenty-seven seconds.

Irma Guerita Sanchez from Guadalajara won the WBC Womens' Light Flyweight Silver Belt against Soledad Negra Macedo from Uruguay. Fighting with the spirit of the national team in the World Cup, Soledad pressured Irma for the first couple of rounds, and caught her with some sharp right hands.

But Irma's better boxing skills, especially her long straight left jab which she followed up with after some telling combinations, wore her opponent down as the  fight progressed.

Irma came within an ace of stopping Soledad with a sustained onslaught right at the end of the tenth and final round, bringing her home crowd to its feet. But the tough lady from Uruguay, tired but defiant fought on to lose a unanimous decison.

[QUOTE=Iceta Lives;8799674]You should watch Finito's son fight. I know you are an insider to all these upcoming fighters. What you think of Alfonzo Finito Lopez? I think he could be a future world champ like Vasquez Jr.[/QUOTE] I've seen Finitito…

[QUOTE=Mr. Fantastic;8797890]I'm a big Canelo fan but dude is over hyped. Guys like Mares and Montiel should get more props than that guy to be honest.[/QUOTE] I think Ricardo Lopez's son named Alfonzo is a better prospect than Alvarez is.

[QUOTE=LeadUppercut;8797303]The same could be said for Chavez until recently. Maybe they will start to push Canelo a little harder now. I like that they're taking their time with him though.[/QUOTE] The big difference is that Chavez Jr was and still…
