17-year-old Californian Joseph “El Tigre” Landeros extended his perfect streak, achieving his 13th victory, with 13 knockouts, by knocking out Irvin Ordaz, (5-2-1, 2 KOs), in a fight on Friday night at the popular Ruffo Appel Gymnasium in Rosarito, Baja California, Mexico. For the native of Riverside, California, it was the return to the ring, after an absence of 4 months, the longest of his life, since his beginnings in the competitions as an amateur in the United States circuits. An injury in a knuckle and a change in his training staff, cause the forced rest. After appearances in Tijuana, Aguascalientes, Culiacán and Chihuahua, Landeros fought in Rosarito as part of his preparation for his upcoming pro career in California once he reaches the age of 18 years old.
Ordaz, a native of Coacalco de Berriozabal, in the State of Mexico, tried to use mobility to handle the fight, but immediately, the aggressiveness of “El Tigre” Lenderos forced him to fight defensively.
Landeros used a consistent attack to the body, to slow down and eventually knock down his opponent twice. The second, for the final count.
