Martinez KO’s Gonzalez In 1: Night 1 Of RJJ Boxing From San Carlos, MX


Undefeated Super-Middleweight prospect Lester Martinez remained unbeaten by scoring a first round knockout over veteran Uriel Gonzalez on Wednesday night at the Marina Terra Hotel and Spa in San Carlos, MX. Martinez immediately showed he had an advantage over Gonzalez in terms of punching power as every time he was able to connect with offense, Gonzalez appeared bothered. A combination of hooks to the body followed by glancing blows to the head sent Gonzalez down late in round one. Gonzalez was able to beat the count. Although he appeared to be slightly wobbled, it did not appear as though he was incapable of continuing. Despite this, the referee opted to stop the fight at the exact end of the round out of concern for Gonzalez’ safety. Official time of the stoppage was 3:00. Lester Martinez advances to 7-0, with 7 Knockouts. Uriel Gonzalez falls to 20-7-1, with 16 Knockouts.

In the first of two Featherweight bouts on the card, undefeated prospect Alan Solis scored a seventh round stoppage of Abelardo Sanchez. Sanchez was able to rock Solis with a flush right hook to the head in round two, but Solis’ overall lateral movement, timing and combination punching gradually broke Sanchez down. The accumulation of punishment, which was highlighted by a consistent body attack ultimately led to a stoppage late in the seventh round as Sanchez could not keep Solis off of him. Official time of the stoppage was 2:47 of round seven. Alan Solis advances to 12-0-1, with 7 Knockouts. Abelardo Sanchez falls to 7-2-2, with 4 Knockouts.

In an entertaining Jr. Featherweight bout that began the evening, undefeated Ariel Perez De La Torre scored a sixth round stoppage over a very “Game” Isaac Buitimea. This was all action from the opening bell with both fighters engaging in furious exchanges of hooks at a high pace. Over time De La Torre’s harder shots eventually wore Buitimea down. A left hook to the head, left hook to the body combination sent Buitimea down late in round five. Although he was able to get up and finish the round, he did not answer the bell for the sixth and final round resulting in the fight being stopped. Official time of the stoppage was :13 of round six. Ariel Perez De La Torre advances to 4-0, with 4 Knockouts. Isaac Buitimea falls to 9-7, with 4 Knockouts.
