Issac "Canelito" Avelar Captures WBC FECOMBOX Featherweight Title on Sugar Promotions Card in Aguascalientes, MX

PhilBoxing.com




AGUASCALIENTES, MX (February 2, 2018) - Tonight at the Explanada de Expoplaza in Aguascalientes, MX, Sugar Promotions presented "New Blood". In the 10-round main event Issac "Canelito" Avelar (14-0, 9 KOs) captured the WBC FECOMBOX
Featherweight title with a TKO victory over Alejandro Frias (6-3-1, 3 KOs).


Avelar, a southpaw who was fighting in front of his hometown fans, applied pressure from the opening bell, forcing Frias to fight going backwards. Avelar used a lot of faints to keep Frias off balance, giving him opportunities to a land a lot of power shots. In the middle rounds, Avelar was overpowering the taller Frias, forcing him fight off the ropes. As the fight entered the later rounds, Frias was starting to fade, as Avelar maintained a steady attack. In the tenth and final round, Avelar landed a flurry of punches to the head and body of Frias, forcing the referee to stop the bout at the .40 second mark. Avelar, who is managed by Prince Ranch Boxing's Greg Hannely, remained undefeated.

"I wanted to give my hometown fans a great victory," said Issac Avelar. "Capturing the WBC FECOMBOX title is a goal I set for myself at the beginning of this year. I know with hard work, I'll be able to fight for more WBC titles as I march up the rankings. I'm very grateful to all the people who helped me get to this point in my career. I'm also thankful to all my family and friends who came out and supported me tonight. My career is about to take off."

In the 8-round co-main event, NABF Junior Flyweight champion, Damien "Sugar" Vazquez (13-0, 6 KOs), remained undefeated with at fifth round knockout over Miguel Lizardo (0-2-1). Vazquez was landing at will and wobbled Lizardo in round three. Vazquez stayed patient and used a nice counter punching attack to dominate the fight. A straight left in round five sent Lizardo to the deck, ending the bout at the 1:57 mark.
