Mioletti Tops Porozo By Unanimous Decision in ‘ShoBox’ Opener

By Keith Idec

Giovanni Cabrera Mioletti made the best he could of a frustrating fight Friday night.

The southpaw from Chicago overcame a slow start to easily out-box Ecuador’s Luis Porozo in a 10-round junior lightweight fight in Tacoma, Washington. The previously unbeaten Porozo spent much of their fight holding Mioletti and moving away from him in the opener of a “ShoBox: The New Generation” tripleheader from Emerald Queen Casino.

All three judges favored Mioletti’s methodical approach to that of the wild-swinging Porozo (14-1, 7 KOs).


Alan Krebs (98-92) and Tim Wood (98-92) scored eight of the 10 rounds for Mioletti, who improved to 17-0. Hunter Walton scored seven rounds for Mioletti (97-93).

Mioletti connected with several straight left hands during the second half of the 10th round, but he couldn’t put an exhausted Porozo away.

Porozo held and ran for much of the ninth round. When he did throw punches, he usually missed badly, whereas Mioletti maintained his composure and connected with straight shots.

By the eighth round, a tiring Porozo appeared to be in survival mode against an opponent that never stopped walking him down.

Mioletti finished up a three-punch combination with about 35 seconds to go in the seventh round.

Porozo was wild throughout the sixth round. Mioletti pursued him for all three minutes, landed several straight left hands and made it tough for Porozo to hit him clean.

Mioletti was more accurate with his jab and his left hand during the fifth round. Porozo spent much of those three minutes moving away from Mioletti, trying not to get caught.

Porozo nailed Mioletti with a right hand just after the midway mark of the fourth round, but Mioletti kept pressing forward. A straight left hand by Mioletti wobbled Porozo late in a third round that previously lacked action.

Porozo attacked Mioletti as soon as the second round started, but he didn’t land anything noteworthy. A right hand by Porozo snapped back Mioletti’s head a minute into the second round.

Mioletti landed a right-left combination later in the second.

Porozo caught Mioletti with several right hands during the first round, when Mioletti lunged in and left himself exposed.
