Hernandez smokes Kanalas in one

By Bill Green

2016 Bronze medalist and undefeated Flyweight prospect Niko Hernandez, thrilled his legion of fans as he silenced Hungarian Szilveszter “The Silent Assassin” Kanalas with a thrilling 1st round TKO 2:52.

Hall of Fame referee, Steve Smoger, waved off the action as midway into the first pinned Kanalas along the ropes and landed his trademark double left hook to the body and head dropping the outgunned Hungarian. Kanalas would barely beat the count and moments later chants of Nico and Nico surfaced and the hometown hero delivered with another crippling body shot followed by a short counter that once again dropped Kanalas this time alongside the other side of the ropes. Hernandez becomes the first World champion in Kansas history as picks up the IBA flyweight championship. Continue reading “Hernandez smokes Kanalas in one”

Salido gets caught in the business side of politics

Two-time world champion Orlando “Siri” Salido who is running for a political post in his native state of Sonora, Mexico was arrested in a publicity stunt by his political opponents in hope to discredit him in his party as a viable change in the political landscape of his state according to the party leadership of Sonora.

“He was singled out because he has a very public persona as a boxing world champion and is one of the most well-known figures in our party and he is accused of a crime and was put thru a very public process that was never brought to an end. He was never formally charged with any wrongdoing but it was a just a sham to bring shame and embarrassment to our party and our candidate Orlando “Siri” Salido,” said Jaime Moreno Berry of the Workers Party.

Duno defeats Gonzalez by unanimous decision

By David Robinett at ringside

In the evening’s main event at Indio, California’s Fantasy Springs Resort Casino, 22-year old Filipino lightweight prospect “Ruthless” Romero Duno (17-1, 14 KOs) withstood a gutsy challenge from Mexican slugger Gilberto “Flaco” Gonzalez (27-5, 22 KOs) to earn a ten-round unanimous decision by scores of 97-93, 97-93, and 98-92.

Photo: Tom Hogan-Hoganphotos/Golden Boy Promotions

Gonzalez, fighting for just the second time in the last two years, looked overmatched early, unable to contend with Duno’s classic Filipino style of attacking in and retreating quickly from multiple angles. At one point in the second round Gonzalez was literally spinning around after being punched, trying to locate his opponent. Duno continued to dominate until round six, when Gonzalez was able to draw Duno into a pitched toe-to-toe battle to start the round, with both fighters trading punches in the corner for nearly a minute. After that, Duno seemed to settle in to a more traditional attack, allowing the southpaw Gonzalez to set his feet and utilize his right jab and left hand. Although the fight was evenly contested over the last few rounds, Duno had built a large enough lead early to secure the comfortable margin of victory.
