As part of BoxeoEstrellaTV’s monthly fight nights, Colombian Miguel "Scorpión" Marriaga became the new Continental Latin American Silver WBC champion in the Featherweight Division by beating Mexican Jorge "Chícharo" García at 2:36 in the sixth round, in what was the main event. The two-hour fight card was broadcast live on Friday, April 30 from the Fit Center in Mexico City on EstrellaTV.
"Chícharo" García was a problem at first for the Colombian Marriaga, who had to work overtime to get the win, because the opponent got into the short distance and that made it difficult for the South American to use his famous hook, while Jorge responded with right-handed that hit the Colombian's face.
Passing the second turn, Marriaga managed to settle down and began working mid-and long-range punches, entering again and again in the face of the Mexican challenger who kept going to the front, creating the exchange of punches at the short range, and trying to put in uppercuts and finishing with hooks.
As the fight progressed, the dominance began to be reflected on Garcia's face, who was unable to land anything big and was left at the mercy of Miguel - who blasted the nose of the "Chicharo" and made it bleed significantly.
Entering the fifth, Miguel was already going for the knockout. He continued to batter Garcia with punches in the throughout the round and continued the assault until the referee had seen enough and stepped in to wave off the fight.
