ISMAEL BARROSO STOPS FIDEL MALDONADO IN 6

PhilBoxing.com




INDIO, Calif. (Oct. 13, 2017) Ismael Barroso (20-1-2, 19 KOs) demonstrated power in both hands as he landed a devastating liver shot to stop Fidel "The Atrisco Kid" Maldonado, Jr. (24-4-1, 19 KOs) in the sixth round of a scheduled 10-round super lightweight fight in the main event of Golden Boy Boxing on ESPN at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino. Besides dropping his opponent with a fight-finishing body punch, Barroso also landed a series of left hands to drop the Albuquerque, New Mexico native in the third round as well. The fight was a tactical battle between two southpaws, but the native of El Tigre, Venezuela was too powerful for Maldonado, Jr. to handle.

"I feel good. I knew I was going to win," said Barroso. "I was feeling very strong going into this bout. We were looking for the body shot the entire night. And when we found the opportunity, we landed the shot and ended the fight."

"I felt fine after the knockdown," said Maldonado, Jr. "He had a sneaky left hand, but I recovered well. Then he set me up with the body shot, and I just couldn't get up. I was too hesitant sometimes, and it kind of set me up for failure. I have to re-watch and assess every move and see where to go from there."

In tonight's co-main event, Argentine slugger Marcelino "Nino" Lopez (33-2-1, 18 KOs) scored a second-round knockout victory against former WBA Interim Super Lightweight Champion Pablo Cesar "El Demoledor" Cano (30-7-1, 21 KOs) in a scheduled 10-round welterweight fight. After a first round in which Cano controlled the distance with his left hand, the native of Tlalnepantla, Mexico released a lazy jab that immediately spelled doom for him.

Indeed, Lopez leaned to his right to slip the jab, getting enough leverage from his feet to come back with a hard right hand and left hook that dropped Cano onto the canvas. Cano got back to his feet, but he was very wobbly, forcing the fight to be stopped at 2:27 of the second round.

"I feel good, and I'm very excited," said Lopez. "I know we had a good fight. It was a big step forward to what's to come. I want to get better and better every day, and I'll continue to work hard."

"I feel fine. I just got caught," said Cano. "I don't know what I'd do different. I'd have to see the fight again. I'm going to work harder. I'm going to watch the tape and learn."

In the televised swing bout, Marvin Cabrera (6-0, 5 KOs) retained his undefeated record with a fourth-round technical knockout victory against Tijuana, Mexico's Hector Velazquez (57-30-3, 39 KOs) in a scheduled six-round middleweight fight.

"I feel really good. I learned a lot with a very experienced fighter," said Cabrera. "For my next fight, I'd like to throw more punches and be more active and get more punches in. I'm happy with the win, but I know I can do better. For the next one I'm going to come out even stronger."

Ruben Rodriquez (2-0, 1 KO), the quick and powerful welterweight prospect of Indio, California, scored a dominant four-round unanimous decision victory against Israel Villela (5-7, 2 KOs) of Mexico City, Mexico before a large crowd of his supporters. Rodriguez began the fight by landing quick, hard shots from his high guard, which he followed with combinations to the body and head. Rodriguez won with three scores of 40-36.

"I felt good. It was a tough opponent," said Rodriguez. "I couldn't do what I wanted to do, but it was a learning experience. For next time, I'm going to try to focus less on the knockout. I'll take my time more and work on my power shots. It was fun fighting in front of my hometown. It was great to have that support."

Oscar Duarte (12-0-1, 7 KOs) beat Juan Montes (25-6-2, 15 KOs) to a bloody mess before winning by TKO after Montes' corner called a halt to the fight at the end of the fourth round. The fight, which was held in the super lightweight division, was full of action, but Duarte's combination of speed and skill was too much for Montes to handle.

"I feel really happy, and I'm thankful to all the people," said Duarte. "I'm thankful to Gabriel Soto, Memo Rocha and Golden Boy for the opportunity. I enjoyed it because I got some experience. I used my mind more and had a good fight."

In the first bout of the evening, super featherweight prospect Javier Martinez (4-0, 3 KOs) of Dallas, Texas scored a tough six-round unanimous decision victory against Ricardo Arias (1-1-1). Martinez won with three scores of 59-55.

Maldonado, Jr. vs. Barroso was a 10-round super lightweight fight presented by Golden Boy Promotions. The event was sponsored by "TECATE, THE OFFICIAL BEER OF BOXING," and Hennessy, "Never Stop. Never Settle." ESPN Deportes transmitted the fights live from Fantasy Springs Resort Casino at 10:00 p.m. ET/7:00 p.m. PT. ESPN3 live streamed the entire card beginning at approximately 8:30 p.m. ET/ 5:30 p.m. PT.
