The Philippines' 26 year old Richard Pumicpic (18-8-2, 6 KO), 122, of Pasay City, was dropped by rugged Mexican Cesar Juarez in what boxing scene described as ?a wild sixth in which Pumicpic stunned Juarez with a hard right but was dropped before the round was over by a left. It was a flash knockdown and Pumicpic argued he?d slipped.?
The referee was Arturo Jota.
It was the 25-year old Jr. featherweight Juarez? (19-5, 14 KO) second straight on Sunday Manila Time at the Auditorio Municipal in Cabo San Lucas, Baja California, Mexico.
Boxing scene reported ?little time was wasted before both men were banging away in close quarters. An exchange of body shots ended with Juarez landing a hard left upstairs to stun Pumicpic. The Filipino stayed up but found himself against the ropes at the end of the round, the more seasoned Juarez landing to the body and head.?
The more accurate Juarez largely dominated the energetic second round. Using his height edge, Juarez landed right hands over the top and again stunned Pumicpic near the ropes with a left hook.
It continued in similar fashion for the next few rounds. Juarez was landing more but Pumicpic stayed in the fight, firing back, sometimes wildly, and attacking the body. A clash of heads drew blood on the forehead of Juarez but it didn?t appear to affect his vision. Both men continued to fight hard the rest of the way but even with a spirited effort, the most Pumicpic could accomplish was to last the distance.
Final scores came in at 95-93, 96-93, and 98-91, all for Juarez. Juarez builds on the momentum of his previous outing, a surprising knockout of undefeated Albert Pagara in July, and a rousing if losing effort against Nonito Donaire in 2015.
