PhilBoxing.com





ORANGE, CA (July 25, 2022) – This past Friday, July 22, 2022, on Thompson Boxing’s “New Blood” card, George "El YuYu" Acosta (13-1, 1 KO), of Whittier, California, won a hard-fought battle against Isaac "Canelito" Avelar (16-4, 10 KOs) of Aguascalientes, Mexico. The 8-round super featherweight main event bout took place at the Doubletree Hotel in Ontario, CA.

In the opening round, both fighters wasted no time trying to feel each other out. Avelar, fighting from the southpaw stance, was letting his hands go as Acosta stood his ground a fired back. Avelar stunned Acosta with a straight left in round two, but Acosta recovered and came back strong, fighting from distance. In round five, Acosta dropped Avelar with a powerful straight right to the solar plexus. Avelar got up and made it to the final bell. Scorecards read 77-74 for Acosta.

“I knew this was going to be a tough fight,” said Acosta. “Avelar has been in the ring with some very good fighters, so I knew he was coming in with a lot of confidence. My conditioning as great and was the main reason I was able to win this fight. In addition, I’ve been working on all aspects of my game and my boxing ability has improved. I wasn’t going to let him walk me down, so I kept the fight on the inside when I had to. I’m grateful for the win and I’m looking forward to my next fight.”



In the co-main event, middleweight Richard Brewart Jr. (12-0, 4 KOs) cruised to a unanimous decision against Ramon Ayala (25-7, 13 KOs). Brewart Jr. landed a plethora of power shots in every round. Ayala gave a gallant effort after being dropped by a left hook from Brewart Jr. in round eight and finished the fight.

“I tried to get him out of there, but Ayala was a very tough opponent,” Brewart Jr. said. “I dominated the fight and now I’m looking to fight some bigger names. I’m getting better with each fight and soon I’ll be knocking on the door of the middleweight rankings.”

In bout number three, Japhethlee Llamido (9-0, 3 KOs) dominated Dihul Olguin (15-25-5, 10 KOs), a fight that took place in the super featherweight division. Llamido boxed beautifully from the southpaw stance, landing punches from all angles. Olguin showed a lot of heart as he kept coming forward the entire fight, but Llamido was just too slick, and won every round. Scorecards read 60-54 for Llamido.

“I wanted to show everyone that I was the superior boxer in this fight.” Llamido said. “I controlled the action by using my jab. Olguin was tough, but I figured him out in the first round. I never had to make an adjustment and stuck to my game plan."

In bout number two, super featherweight Leo Sanchez (1-0), was successful winning his pro debut against Erick Espinoza (1-1-2), a fight that saw both warriors going toe-to-toe. Sanchez landed a tremendous amount of body blows from his southpaw stance. Espinoza stood his ground and was firing back power shots of his own. Sanchez outworked Espinoza in each round and won a unanimous decision. Scorecards read 40-36 for Sanchez.

“Winning my pro debut was amazing,” stated Sanchez. “I fought a tough undefeated fighter from Mexico, and it wasn’t an easy fight. I had to push myself to get the win and I’m happy with my performance.”

In the opening bout of the evening, super flyweight Stephanie Chavez (2-0) defeated Esli Cervantes (0-1), as she dominated the fight from the opening bell. Chavez, a southpaw, was landing crisp power punches throughout the fight while boxing beautifully from the outside. Scorecards read 40-37 across the board for Chavez.

“I felt good going into this fight and all my preparation and hard work paid off.” said Chavez after the fight. “I’ll be right back in the gym after taking a few days off. I’m hoping to fight on the next Thompson card in August.”
