Juan Estrada, David Sanchez Shine In Hermosillo, MX

By Jake Donovan

No Tyson Marquez. No problem.

Juan Francisco 'El Gallo' Estrada was a willing replacement in knocking out Ardin Diale in the 2nd round of their Televisa-televised main event Saturday evening in Hermosillo, Mexico. 

Diale was game but outgunned, suffering two knockdowns in the opening round but still summoning the courage to make his presence felt. The Filipino recovered from each knockdown and managed to score with chin music of his own.

The difference in the fight was Estrada's ability to hurt Diale far more than the opposite proved to be true. As such, it made for a quick evening. A body shot late in the second round put an end to the fight, as Diale was in no condition to continue despite his desire to fight on.

The official time was 2:22 of round two. 

Estrada couldn't have asked for a better opportunity to shine on short notice. The bout took place in his hometown as he secured his 4th straight win to advance to 23-1 (17KO). 

Diale falls to 18-7-3 (5KO), snapping a four-fight win streak.

The original plans called for Diale to serve as an optional title defense for Hernan 'Tyson' Marquez. However, the sanctioning body involved refused to allow the fight to go forward, insisting that Marquez instead first honor his overdue mandatory against Juan Carlos Reveco of Argentina.

UNDERCARD

In the televised co-feature, David "Tornado" Sanchez (22-2, 17 KO) blasted out Nicaraguan challenger Eliezer Quezada (14-3, 14 KO) inside of two rounds.

Both fighters had their moments early, with Quezada finding success while switching back and forth from righty to southpaw. Sanchez came on in round two, which proved to be the beginning of the end. A flurry of punches sent Quezada to the canvas for the first of three times in the round, with the final knockdown resulting in an immediate stoppage at 1:27 of round two.

Luis Cruz (20-1, 16 KO) fought for the first time since falling short to Juan Carlos Burgos last November on the undercard of Manny Pacquiao's disputed points win in his third fight with Juan Manuel Marquez. This time around, Cruz put his faith in his power, blasting out Tomas Sierra at 2:32 of round one.
