Enrique Tinoco Drops Jordan Gill Three Times, Shocking TKO Win

Nottingham Arena, Nottingham - In a major upset, Enrique Tinoco (18-5-4, 13 KOs), who struggled on the scale to make weight for this contest, scored three knockdowns to stop rising featherweight prospect Jordan Gill (23-1, 7 KOs) after eight rounds of action. This was Tinoco's first bout at featherweight since March 2015.

The victory gives Tinoco the WBA International featherweight title.

Coming in, Gill has been blasting out the competition with three stoppage victories. He knocked out Emmanuel Dominguez in three rounds back in March.

Tinoco is very durable. He won a six round decision over Juan Beltran in March. In his biggest contests, Tinoco was able to go the distance in decision losses with hot contender Devin Haney and Mario Barrios.

The sole knockout loss on his record, came to dangerous puncher Miguel Roman in February 2014.

Gill came out boxing, proving that he was far more polished than Tinoco.

As the rounds played out, Tinoco was starting to really warm up with his inside fighting and put down Gill in the third round with a very hard body shot. Gill was hurting and got up at the count of six. He played it safe to get out of trouble as Tinoco was trying to finish him off.

Gill seemed to recover by the fourth, and he was using the jab and trying to keep Tinoco at bay. Tinoco was pressing forward and throwing the bigger punches.

But then during the fifth round, Tinoco nailed him again with hard shots to the body and sent Gill down in pain. Once again Gill beat the count, and then used the ring and his legs to avoid further damage.

Tinoco came out throwing big punches in the sixth, as Gill was on the run and trying to get away from danger. Gill was jabbing and hooking Tinoco with shots when he came in. Tinoco started landing big punches as he rushed in. Gill was able to hold on and then came back with punches of his own.

Gill continued to box and land crisp shots in the seventh. Tinoco was walking through the punches, but having trouble with landing his bigger counters. Tinoco was letting his hands go in the eight and Gill's face was swelling up around the left eye. Tinoco dominated most of the action as Gill was pretty much playing it safe and staying away. Near the end of the round, Gill got dropped for a third time with another body shot.

And the fight was waved off by the corner of Gill, before the start of the ninth round.

Just catching up with it now. Smith and Frankham looked OK for debuts, no trouble. Ford's power a bit concerning, but theyre saying opponent was 130, Ford expected to go down to 122. Nothing spectacular, but cant really complain too…
