Former IBO super middleweight world champion Carlos Gongora (22-2, 17 KOs) of Ecuador stopped heavy handed local favorite Jhon Teheran (18-4, 15 KOs) on Tuesday morning at the Coliseo David Sanchez de Pescaito in Santa Marta, Colombia. Gongora imposed his will midway through round one and dropped Teheran with a combination to the head. Teheran beat the count and managed to survive the round. A wicked right hook to the body ended matters early in round two as Teheran crumbled to canvas where the referee immediately waved off the bout. Gongora is managed by Mike Criscio and promoted by Hall of Fame promoter Lou DiBella.

      • I do not think I can Kris…LOL!!! Perhaps that is a good thing! Glad to see Gongora get a win. I like watching his fights.

        • Yes, it is nice to see Gongora win. He is the nephew of Segundo Mercado, the guy Bernard Hopkins beat to win the IBF Middleweight title back in ’94/’95. It’s funny how some fighters impress the most in a losing effort, as is the case with Gongora vs Mbilli.
