Boxing Returns!! Results from Nicaragua

Yes! The first live boxing card in over a month anywhere in the world took place Saturday night at the Polideportivo Alexis Arguello, Managua, Nicaragua. Fans were socially distanced in the arena and pretty much everyone except the fighters was required to wear a mask. Chocolatito Gonzalez was among those in attendance.

In the main event of the card presented by Bufalo Boxing Promotions, headed by former two-division world champion Rosendo “Bufalo” Alvarez, super featherweight Robin Zamora (16-7, 8 KOs) won an eight round unanimous decision against Ramiro Blanco (18-8-3, 10 KOs). All three judges had it for Zamora with scores respectively 77-75 78-74 77-75. They previously fought last October with Zamora winning by TKO2.

Super lightweight Freddy Fonseca (28-5-1, 19 KOs) was victorious when opponent Alain Aguilar (8-8-2, 1 KO) didn’t answer the bell for round five. Fonseca fought current IBF super featherweight champion Jojo Diaz last year.

Minimumweight Byron Castellon (15-13-3, 2 KOs) took a six round unanimous decision over Eliezar Gazo (18-11-2, 3 KOs). 59-55 all three official cards.

Unbeaten welterweight Gabriel Escalante (13-0, 7 KOs) not surprisingly scored a fifth round TKO over Mario Mairena (2-20-1, 1 KO).

Featherweight Brian Perez (12-11-1, 10 KOs) stopped Lesther Lara (16-11-2, 7 KOs) at 2:46 of round two. Perez dropped Perez twice in round two with the referee waving the bout off without a count.

  • Congrats to everyone involved. Thanks for bucking the herd and going on with the show.

  • Apparently there just aren’t too many strawweights in Nicaragua – Byron Castellon & Eliezer Gazo have fought each other 7 times now and this is the first time Castellon has gotten the W.

  • Not really sure if that was a good idea, but hey, it’s not my call. I’m just glad live cards are back and hopefully more to follow
