Marrero: KO of Lara Was a Message, I Want Every Champ at 126

Don Haskins Center, El Paso, Texas - Featherweight contender Claudio Marrero (23-2, 16 KOs) deliver a stunning one punch knockout of Jorge Lara (29-1-2, 21 KOs) in the first round of their featherweight bout.
 
"I knew he would be aggressive and we worked very hard in training camp to achieve this," said Marrero. "I saw my opportunity and I knew that it was over once I connected."
 
"I just got caught with a great punch," said Lara. "I wanted to be aggressive and give the fans a great show. It didn't go my way. I'll be back and I'll be better. I'm going to get back to work and keep pushing toward my goals."

Lara charged forward in the opening seconds, but was caught by a perfect left hook from Marrero during one of the early exchanges in the fight and was sent to the canvas. While he tried to get to his feet, he was clearly hurt as referee Rocky Burke halted the bout 33 seconds into the opening round.
 
"This was a message to the whole division," said Marrero. "I'm a championship-caliber fighter and I showed it again tonight. I'm ready to take on every champion out there. I want the best challenges and I proved tonight that I'm able to beat anyone. I have all the skills and I can't wait to show them off against the best."

IN OTHER NEWS: The young 17-year-old Californian, Joseph "El Tigre" Landeros, extended his perfect streak, achieving his 13th victory with 13 knockouts, by knocking out Irvin Ordaz, (5-2-1; 2 KO's), in a fight on Friday, April 28, at the popular Ruffo Appel Gymnasium in Rosarito, Baja California, Mexico.

For the native of Riverside, California, it was the return to the ring, after an absence of 4 months, the longest of his life, since his beginnings in the competitions as an amateur in the United States circuits. An injury in a knuckle and a change in his training staff, caused the forced rest.

Landeros used a consistent attack to the body, to slow down and eventually knock down his opponent twice. The second, for the final count.

[QUOTE=illpapi; He had 7rds to adjust to Rojas!! But Rojas is one tough SOB!! He made Arce moan and whimpering on the floor in front of thousands of viewers!! and Lara quit in his stool when he was the one…

Marrero is a very skilled fighter but needs to take the ring and his opponents more serious. I think the only reason he lost to Rojas was because he was clowning around. He was winning that fight clearly.

What made that humiliation more enjoyable was the fact that the commentators paid zero attention to Marrero, a former world champion, in the lead up to the fight. The deck was completely stacked one way and you got a glimpse…
