The undercard bouts of Supefly 2 headlined by Rungvisai-Estrada at The Forum in Inglewood, California Saturday night (Sunday morning in Manila) were streamed live on the Internet over RingTV.com.
Ahani Torres (17-17-1, 2KOs) of Mexico captured the vacant WBC International Female light flyweight title by defeating Louisa Hawton (7-1-0, 3KOs) of Australia in a unanimous decision victory. Torres used her experience to thwart Hawton's aggressive style with effective counterpunching. Scores: Tony Crebs 79-73, John McCarthy 77-75, and Fernando Villarreal 77-75 all in favor of Torres.
In 8 rounds lightweight bout, Pedro Duran (16-0-3, 13KOs) of Paramount, CA and Enrique Tinoco (16-5-4, 12KOs) of Tijuana, Mexico fought to a draw. Tinoco, nicknamed Torito, put the pressure on Duran to take the early rounds but Duran boxed smartly in the 2nd half of the fight using lateral movement to neutralize Tinoco's aggressiveness and picking his shots. Scores 77-75 Duran, 76-76 and 76-76.
In the opening bout, super featherweight Mario Ramos (4-0-0, 4KOs) of San Diego, CA made quick work of Oscar Eduardo Quezada (7-6-0, 4KOs) of Sonora, Mexico stopping him in the first round in a scheduled six round bout. Time of stoppage: 2:19 in the first round.
