'Quien Pinta Para Corona' Results From Puebla, Mexico
By Jake Donovan
Sammy Gutierrez led the way for five finalists in the ‘Quien Pinta Para La Corona’ series after scoring a third round stoppage over Edgar Martinez in their flyweight bout Saturday evening in Puebla, Mexico.
The 26-year old Gutierrez is already a ring veteran, picking up his second straight win in what was his 43rd pro fight. The bout was a thrilling affair, but with Gutierrez in control and getting the upper hand in the majority of the exchanges.
A flurry from the free-swinging flyweight prompted a referee stoppage at 1:53 of round three.
Gutierrez advances to 33-8-2 (23KO) with the win. Martinez falls to 10-7-3 (6KO).
Giovanni Delgado remained unbeaten after taking an eight-round decision over Miguel Tique in their bantamweight showdown. Delgado threw everything he had at Tique, who managed to stand tall for the entire evening even if coming up short every time the two traded punches.
Delgado drew blood in the closing seconds of the fight, but ran out of time before getting a chance to capitalize. He would instead settle for his fifth win of 2012 as he improves to 12-0 (6KO). Tique’s record evens up at 10-10-2 (2KO).
Enrique Tinoco (8-0-2, 4KO) won by disqualification in the fifth round against Carlos Jacobo (14-7-1, 12KO) in a strange affair.
Neither fighter seemed willing to press the action, but it was Jacobo who bailed at the first sign of pressure. Tinoco began to come in the fifth, at which point Jacobo went low blow crazy until getting tossed after already losing two points.
Daniel Echeverra remains a knockout every time out. The lightweight prospect moves to 3-0 (3KO) after scoring a sixth round knockout over Orlando Ramos (2-4-2, 1KO). The bout was a bloodbath, but mercifully halted after Echeverria scored three knockdowns to force a stoppage at 2:22 of round six.
In the bout which drew the biggest applause of the night by fight’s end, Josue Portales scored a majority decision over Jesus Faro in their eight-round battle. Both fighters came out swinging from the opening bell, but it was Portales (5-1, 2KO) who gained the upper hand just long enough to squeak past Faro (8-7-1, 6KO) on two of the three official scorecards.
The next entry in the series takes place November 10 in Guadalajara, Mexico.
