Rey "Boom Boom" Bautista stays on course with the upcoming big fights of his career after demolishing Nicaraguan superbantam Roberto "El Chucky" Bonilla in the 3rd round of their 10-round scheduled fight today in the undercard of the Barrera-Juarez boxing event at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, CA.
In an action-filled contest, Rey Bautista stopped Robert Bonilla with a devastating right uppercut with 27 seconds left in the 3rd round.
Boxing superstar and Bautista's promoter Golden Boy Oscar de la Hoya climbed into the ring to personally congratulate Bautista.
"I thank God that our hard work and dedication have paid off," said Antonio L. Aldeguer, Bautista's manager and benefactor to many rising Filpino boxers, right after the fight. "This just shows that our Filipino boxers are really world class," Aldeguer added.
Bautista's remaining hurdle will be against Mexican Alejandro Felix Montiel in the undercard of the Pacquiao-Larios fight in Manila on July 2 before coming up with probably the biggest fight of his career underneath the projected farewell fight of Oscar de la Hoya on September 16 this year in Las Vegas. De la Hoya was rumored to take on the undefeated and number 1 pound-for-pound fighter in the planet today Pretty Boy Floyd Mayweather in what was projected to be the biggest fight in boxing in recent times.
Bautista now improves his immaculate record to 20 wins with 15 KOs. Bonilla dropped to 23-8.
