RJJ Boxing Results: Luis Torres crowned WCBS Tournament & WBC Latino lightweight champion

PhilBoxing.com




OBREGON, Sonora, México (June 3, 2022) – Undefeated Luis “Koreano” Torres (16-0, 10 KOs) won the inaugural “World Cup Boxing Series (WCBS) 4-Man Lightweight Tournament” championship final in last night’s RJJ Boxing on UFC FIGHT PASS ® main event, as well as capture the vacant World Boxing Council (WBC) Latino lightweight title, at Palenque de la Expo in Obregón Sonora, México.

All the action – presented by Roy Jones Jr. (RJJ) Boxing Promotions, De La O Promotions and WCBS -- was streamed live and exclusively on UFC FIGHT PASS®, the world’s leading digital subscription service for combat sports. To sign up for UFC FIGHT PASS, please visit www.ufcfightpass.com.

The 20-year-old Torres, who fought in his hometown, was in his eighth RJJ Boxing on UFC FIGHT PASS show. In an entertaining match, pre-tournament favorite Torres arguably faced the toughest opponent of his young career to date in Andrade, who defeated 29-1-2 Jorge Lara by 8-round split decision in 2020. Andrade also went the complete 10-round distance last year with both present World Boxing Organization (WBO) No. 1 junior lightweight contender Archie Sharp and 17-0 Bryan Acosta

Torres took early control, winning the first seven rounds on one of the judges’ scorecards, 6 of 7 on another, and he cruised to victory from there. The former WBC Youth Silver lightweight champion is clearly a fighter to watch as he prepares to break into the world rankings and possibly challenge one of the top guys in the absolutely loaded 135-pound division in the not-too-distant future.

In the co-featured event, Bryan “Zama” Zamarripa (11-1, 3 KOs) edged previously unbeaten Yair Marmolejo Rojas (7-1-2, 5 KOs) by way of an 8-round majority decision in an evenly matched bout.

The development of 19-year-old undefeated lightweight Marco Cota Moreno (7-0, 5 KOs) continues to be impressive. Moreno, who was a decorated amateur boxer, stopped Juan Leonel “La Vitola” Ortega Resendez (4-3-1, 2 KOs) in the third round. Hot prospect Moreno had a 146-4 amateur record, including 5 Sonora State Championships. Sonora is a hotbed of Mexican boxing having produced the likes of Julio Cesar Chavez and so many other greats. Moreno may be the next great fighter from Sonora.

In the RJJ Boxing on UFC FIGHT PASS opener, Pedro Penunuri Borgaro (3-0, 1 KO) floored Hector Avila Lozano (1-1, 1 KO) in the first round, which proved to be the difference as Borgaro won a 4-round unanimous decision by scores of 39-36, 38-37 twice.
