Andres Gutierrez Edges Tomas Rojas For WBC Regional Title

by Miguel Rivera

Before a packed house at the Palenque of San Juan del Rio in Queretaro, Mexico - Andres 'Jaguar' Gutierrez won the WBC International title of the super featherweight division in an all-out war against the two-time world champion Tomas 'Worm' Rojas.

More than 7,000 fans gathered early to enjoy the card presented by Promociones del Pueblo in association with Cancún Boxing by Pepe Gómez and Boxing Time by Memo Rocha, with the support of Playboy México, and they received all of the facilities with the help of the Municipal Government of San Juan del Río.

In the main event of the event, which was televised by Televisa Deportes, Gutiérrez imposed his powerful punch on the elusive style of the double world champion.


The Veracruz left-hander showed his skill in the first rounds, keeping the valiant puncher at bay and at no time did he stop looking for the initiative, while in the first quarter of the judges a triple draw was announced 38-38, after four rounds.

An accidental headbutt in the fifth turn caused a cut on the right eyebrow of the 'Jaguar' that cost him the deduction of a point - according to the regulations of the World Boxing Council.

Rojas fought at the distance that suits him best, boxing in reverse against the furious attacks of Gutierrez.

By the end of the contest, the two were engaged in tremendous drift without care, in what was a frantic closure of the battle that caused a new cut on the face of the 'Jaguar.'

After the twelve rounds were finished, the judges registered scores of 112-115, 113-114 and 113-114 all in favor of Gutierrez who improved his mark to 38 victories, with 25 of them before the limit.

The co-featured bout saw undefeated knockout artist David 'El General' Cuellar, who was far too strong for the experienced Emmanuel Potosi Cerda - with Cuellar picking up a first round stoppage.
