Christian Mbilli (18-0, 17 KOs) maintained his undefeated record on Thursday night against Jesus Antonio Gutierrez (27-5-2, 14 KOs) at the Military Academy at West Point in New York on Twitch Tv.
He was accompanied by his coaches Marc Ramsay and Samuel Décarie that Mbilli managed to put an end to the hostilities during the fifth round.
“I am very happy with my performance. It was solid! I just sent out a message to the rest of the super middleweight around the world. I'm ready for anyone,” said Mbilli as he stepped out of the ring.
Despite the postponement of his fight against Ievgen Khytrov, Mbilli kept up his efforts in training to finally face the tough Mexican, Gutierrez, who faced many boxers seasoned fighters such as Gabriel Rosado, Esquiva Falcao and Steven Butler, among others.
Gutierrez was aggressive from the start of the fight, as he wanted to fight toe to toe with Mbilli. Despite his opponent's intentions, Mbilli dominated Gutierrez from the first minute of the duel, in addition to winning all of the exchanges in this fight.
Mbilli managed to set his pace and use his power shots to finish the job with a powerful left hook to Gutierrez's head with one minute and ten seconds remaining in round five.
“I am very proud of Christian's performance. He showed great skills and we know Christian wants to face the best. We will therefore continue to work hard to find him the best possible opportunities so that he obtains a world championship fight,” explained Eye of the Tiger Management President Camille Estephan.
