Unbeaten Nery KOs Payano in nine

By Miguel Maravilla at ringside

Undefeated former WBC bantamweight champion Luis “Pantera” Nery (30-0, 24 KOs) of Tijuana, Mexico scored a ninth round knockout over former world champion and two-time Olympian Juan Carlos Payano (21-3, 9 KOs) of the Dominican Republic on Saturday night at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. The two southpaws clashed heads early in the opening round but no caused no cuts as Nery and Payano fought on. Fighting aggressively in round two, Nery landed some looping wild punches that got Payano’s attention. Nery began to pick up the pace connecting inside to the body and roughing up Payano. A short right by Nery in the fourth started things up as he backed Payano and followed up with his attack.

Payano survived the previous round and stood his ground in the fifth as Nery was working hard. Nery landed a crisp left hook in the sixth but Payano kept coming. The Mexican landed some heavy shots in the seventh as he backed up Payano. A solid straight left by Nery landed flush down the pipe as Payano’s nose was busted but the Dominican kept fighting on. Nery sent Payano to the canvas in the ninth with a crunching left hook to the body that did it as referee Vic Drackulich stopped the fight at 1:43 of the ninth. Nery claimed the WBC silver title.

  • Nery is good. Very good. Monster is better. Naoya Inoue will knock Luis Nery out. Mark my words.

  • Lol, it took fat Nery 9 rounds to do what the monster did in 1/8th of a round, and these clueless Mexicans actually think Nery could beat Inoue.

  • Chris the natural…natural bigot…natural idiot….natural “aficionado”….natural 0-7 recreational boxing gym record. I know you. Now stop flapping your gums

    • You don’t know shit you look IQ subhuman piece of trash. What are you talkin about 0-7? Post proof of your stats or shut the f*** up. Only leftist retards call somebody a bigot because they disagree that their fighter is what they say he is. you’re a commie little b**** who needs my tax dollars to survive, so be quiet before I cut you off.

  • Nery is ok but Naoya will flatten him within 4 rounds. I also pick Rodriquez and Oubaali to beat him also.

  • Clueless Mexicans… hmmm. Chris the natural Murray gtfoh you tranny. You must have been abused by Mexicans to think this way…. Just saying

    • Chris the natural Murray? You have me confused with somebody else faggot. The women who I have sex with wood mace you if you even came up to them. I am the alpha, no tranny. I’m just exposing Nery for what he is and if you can’t handle that, then you can head on back to your safe space. What you don’t want to do is hang with the big dogs and you should keep your little puppy ass on the front porch, bo-ey.

  • Chris the natural….cut me off in what? I see you on your scooter, can’t afford gas I guess. Had you been a better fighter maybe you could have had a better life. Keep talking shit about Mexicans…I get it though, 6 of your 7 losses were to those same Mexicans you speak of. Now, scoot along…keep cutting me off. Such a loser.

  • Chris the natural…it’s would, not wood. Wood is what you enjoy on a long weekend. I read the shortest book ever made last night….it’s called “wit and wisdom” author…you guessed it…Chris the Natural.
