Azcuy stuns ex-champ Gomez!
Unheralded Yamplier Azcuy scored a shocking first round technical knockout over previously undefeated 37-0 WBC #2 ranked heavyweight Juan Carlos Gomez Friday night at the Entertainment Center in Laredo, Texas. Azcuy staggered Gomez, a former WBC cruiser titlist, with a right hand, then went right hand crazy, throwing at least a dozen more before referee Rafael Ramos jumped in to stop the fight after just 1:46 of fighting. Gomez was certainly getting hit, but never went down and didn't appear that hurt. Azcuy improves to 11-1 with 7 KOs. Gomez falls to 37-1 with 31 KOs.
Same night.......not even a line on it........
Late sub Sanchez upsets Candelo!
By Ralph Gonzalez at ringside
IBF #5 jr middleweight J.C. Candelo got more than he bargained for when he faced late sub Eddie Sanchez Friday night at Pechanga Entertainment Center in Temecula, California. Sanchez (12-3-1) upset Candelo by unanimous decision in an absolute shocker. The elongated 6'2 Sanchez, who replaced unbeaten Joachim Alcine after Alcine failed a medical test, took the fight to Candelo for the first five rounds. Candelo dropped the Sanchez in the sixth and both traded heavy shots in the closing rounds of an exciting fight. Scores were 115-112, 117-110, 118-109, all for Sanchez. Considering he had just seven hours notice, it was an amazing effort for Sanchez, who recently defeated WBO #1 welter Jose Celaya
