Rocky Hernandez wins by TKO in ring return

All-action WBC #3 super featherweight Eduardo “Rocky” Hernandez (35-2, 32 KOs) scored a seventh round TKO over rugged Daniel Lugo (27-3-1, 18 KOs) on Saturday night at the Palenque de la Feria in Aguascalientes, Mexico. Lugo hurt Hernandez in round three, but Rocky woke up after that, pressing the action and beating up Lugo the rest of the way. The referee finally waved it off at 2:17 of round seven. Hernandez was a round away from winning the WBC title last October against O’Shaquie Foster before being stopped in the final round.

  • Lugo started doing a good job the first 3 rounds then this turn in a bloody war where Rocky started taking control of the fight with more power shots and Lugo getting worked out good sttopage by the referee

  • I didn’t see the fight, but that picture on the cover of the article shows a devastating body shot to the solar plexus, extremely debilitating. Look at how that layer of meat shifts to the side, great shot.

    • Same here. Didn’t see it, but man, you could feel the impact just from the picture. Reminds me of a comic book punch. It just needed the “BAM!” bubble on the top. I’ll see if it’s on YT.

  • I thought that the Cruz-Romero fight was going to end in a TD because of a headbutt for sure. Guess they have to do it again. I watched a clip of the highlights for both fights, but I want to see the entire card because it looked good.
