Chavez Shocks Yesica Bopp: Ruiz, Cazares Win Big

by Miguel Rivera

Estadio Morelos, Ecatepec, México - WBC silver light flyweight champion Yessica “Kika” Chavez (18-3-2, 4 KOs) got revenge with a ten round unanimous decision over previously unbeaten WBA/WBO light flyweight champion Yesica “Tuti” Bopp (24-1, 11 KOs).  The scores were 97-93, 97-93, 96-95. Only Chavez's title was at stake. In 2009, in Bopp's backyard of Argentina, it was Bopp who won a very lopsided ten round decision with scores of 100-90 on all three cards. In the rematch, Bopp seemed to be doing well after four rounds, but the judges had her way behind from the start and she was never able to catch up.

Hugo 'Incredible' Cazares showed no mercy in his match against Filipino Gabriel Altarejos, who could not take the punishment and was dropped at two minutes and 52 seconds of the first round. Cazares consistently hit the body of the Filipino, who never failed to respond to the punishment of the former world champion. Hugo improved to 39-7-2 and 27 knockouts while Altarejos, which fell seconds after receiving a blow to the stomach, dropped to 12-2-1 with six knockouts.

In the other televised bout,  Hugo 'Cuatito' Ruiz needed only two rounds to score a knockout over Giovani 'Russo' Caro, who went down once and was later battered against the ropes. Ruiz improves his record to 32-2-1 and 29 knockouts, while Caro drops to 24-13-5 and 19 knockout.
