In an exciting show last night (Friday March 10th) at the Cuban Boxing Club in Dubai, the WBC eighth ranked super featherweight in the world moved a little closer to his dream of a world title fight as undefeated Jadier Herrera scored an impressive one punch knockout in round three over Filipino Harmonito Dela Torre. Herrera dropped Dela Torre in round two and again in round three before landing the picture-perfect right hand that ended the fight later in the third round. With the win Herrera improves to 10-0, 8 KOs. Dela Torre falls to 22-5, 14 KOs.

    • Your logic is just amazing. From one fight you are able to make that Einstein-like deduction. I guess a similar knockout by two random guys at light heavyweight would also condemn the entire division.

      • You see more death in boxing from little men boxing 118 lbs and below than you do from any other weight divisions.
