The only Heavyweight fight on Thursday night was in Mexico as the unbeaten Fernando Fernandez (2-0, 1) took a 4 round shut our against the limited Juan Luis Lopez Alcaraz (3-9-2, 1). According to boxrec Fernandez was an amazing 370lbs, a staggering 106lbs Heavier than he was on debut less than 2 months.
No many bouts, world wide, took place this past Thursday but we did have were two Heavyweight bouts in Mexico.
Of those two bouts the most notable featured unbeaten American Scott Alexander (9-0-1, 5) who scored a 129 second KO over the over-matched Juan Luis Lopez Alcaraz (3-8-2, 1). This bout, a clear mismatch on paper, saw the expected outcome and left us all wondering what Alexander would fight someone with a pulse.
The other bout on the show of interest to ourselves saw the debuting Abraham Cruz (1-0) use a 53lb weight advantage to over come the much smaller Luis Rodriguez (1-2) over 4 rounds. This bout ended in a majority decision for Cruz though it seems the victory will have done little to convince fans that Cruz will be worth followin considering the laboured manner of his victory.
