Zulina Munoz, Bruno Sandoval KO Winners In Toluca

By Jake Donovan

Zulina Munoz needed all 10 rounds to squeak past Maribel Ramirez in their first meeting last November. This time around, the streaking super flyweight didn't even need two minutes, scoring a 1st round knockout in their rematch Saturday evening in Toluca, Mexico.

There was no feeling out process in the Fox Deportes-televised rematch, which also aired live on Televisa and via same-day tape delay on WBC's website. Munoz immediately went to work on her countrywoman to avoid any late scare on the scorecards.

The judges weren't even given a chance to use their pencil and paper as Ramirez was under siege from the opening bell and never able to catch up. A brutal body attack left the challenger frozen in pain, perfectly setting up a final right hand by Munoz that crashed flush on her opponent's chin.

It was the final punch thrown in the fight. Ramirez never made it to her feet, as the fight was waved off at 1:49 of round one.

Munoz is now unbeaten in her past 25 fights (23-0-2 over that stretch) as she improves to 39-1-2 (26KO). Ramirez drops her third straight as she falls to 8-6-2 (3KO).

UNDERCARD

Bruno Sandoval remained unbeaten, forcing Gustavo Garibay to quit inside of six rounds in their televised co-feature Saturday evening in Toluca, Mexico.

The baby-faced knockout artist was vicious in his assault, digging to the body early before overwhelming his overmatched foe. A flurry of power punches left Garibay defenseless and pinned on the ropes, before the referee stepped in to intervene.

The official time was 1:04 of round six.

Sandoval, just 22 years old, advances to 15-0 (13KO), picking up his fourth win of 2013. Garibay falls to 8-7 (5KO), losing for the fifth time in his last seven fights, including four knockout losses with a span of just two years.

surprised a ko win so quick, even though Maribel is really 108 #er...Munoz has never fought quality opposition & her "title" win was a gift over the same Ramirez, who I thought beat her...Munoz running on borrowed time/doing her best…
