With Garcia being a first-timer, Loeza wasted little time and took control from the outset by throwing and landing the straighter punches. His consistency made the judges’ job easy.IMG_8922

At the conclusion of Bout #6, Jason Meza of the Arena (r) has his arm raised in victory by referee Hondo Fontane.

At the conclusion of Bout #6, Jason Meza of The Arena in Point Loma (r) had his arm raised in victory by referee Hondo Fontane after he defeated the game Jason Rivera who now trains at Tiger Smalls Boxing in Mission Valley.

In Bout #6, 16-year-old Jason Meza (131 lbs.) from The Arena Gym, Point Loma made an impressive showing against 17-year-old Jason Rivera (133 lbs.) from the Tiger Smalls Boxing Club. Mason’s elusiveness involved a lot of head bobbing from side to side or dropping down to avoid Rivera’s arsenal. While dodging all these bad intentions, especially those aimed at his head, Meza would somehow pop back up to land his own left-right combinations. Rivera must have felt as if he were fighting Mason in a house of mirrors. IMG_8947

Bout #7 featured 10-year-old Antonio Padilla (83 lbs.) from the Legacy Training Center, Vista going up against Adrian Mendez (86 lbs.) from the ABC Youth Foundation Mongoose Boxing Gym, San Diego.

Bout #7 featured 10-year-old Antonio Padilla (83 lbs.) from the Legacy Training Center, Vista going up against Adrian Mendez (86 lbs.) from the ABC Youth Foundation Mongoose Boxing Gym, San Diego. This one was one of those bouts almost too difficult to decide a winner. Both young boxers went full bore delivering as many punches as humanly possible and in the end, the judges deemed Mendez had the higher punch count.IMG_8953

During intermission, Hondo Fontane, the President of our local USA Amateur Boxing LBC 44 Cal Border introduced the crowd to some of the local boxers who represented LBC44 at this year’s Junior Olympics in Dallas.

Bout #8 featured 25-year-old Tommy Watson (168 lbs.) from The Arena, Point Loma going up against 24-year-old Hector Gomez (172 lbs.) from The Pride of San Diego, Bonita. With their size and power, each punch landed with a thud. Without headgear, you know this match would not have lasted long. After the well contested, even first round, Watson began to take the upper hand with his harder, cleaner blows and his ability to either slip or block a punch with his gloves.

At the conclusion of Bout #9 Mario Salas and Aron Avila await the judges scores.

Bout #9 featured 15-year-old Mario Salas (120 lbs.) from The Arena, Point Loma, taking on 16-year-old Aron Avila (120 lbs.) from Intensity MMA, South San Diego.

Here is "the punch" of the show. It was delivered by Mario Ramos with such force it had to affect the outcome of the match.

Here is “the punch” of the show being thrown by Mario Ramos (l) of the Bound Boxing Academy – a big overhand left from the southpaw that was delivered to the right side of Ulises Bastidas’ forehead with such force it had to affect not only the scoring but the eventual outcome of the match. At the time, it appeared all eyes were focused on that punch in that red corner.

At the conclusion of Bout #10, Mario Ramos has his arm raised in victory.

In Bout #10 you had 17-year-old Ulises Bastidas (137 lbs.) from The Arena, Point Loma, taking on the 16-year-old, lefty Mario Ramos (136 lbs.) from the Bound Boxing Academy, Chula Vista in a close one. With both boxers being well schooled, you knew either was going to have to flash something new and brilliant to overwhelm the other. That out of the ordinary came midway through the second round when Ramos came over the top with this big overhand left to the top of Bastidas’ forehead. It wasn’t one of those Dan Henderson “I’ll stop-you-in-your-tracks punches”, but it did appear to affect Bastidas plus impress both the fans and the judges.zz 11 a 640

With Rosiles having more experience it didn’t take long before he had himself in a nice rhythm to earn the victory.640 Bt 12 a

At the conclusion of Bout #12 we see referee Hondo Fontane raising the arm of the victorious David Gates after he was awarded the victory over Luis Tapia.

At the conclusion of Bout #12 we see referee Hondo Fontane raising the arm of the victorious David Gates (r) after it was announced that he had defeated Luis Tapia (l) of Mariscal Boxing, Tijuana.

Bout #12 featured 20-year-old David Gates (157 lbs.) from the Alliance Training Center, Chula Vista, taking on 19-year-old Luis Tapia (157 lbs.) from the Mariscal Boxing Club, Tijuana, B. C., Mexico. Gates may have weighed the same as Tapia, but the four-inch height advantage surely made the matchup look lopsided. As you might imagine, Gates went head-hunting while Tapia went hard to the body. As it turns out Gates’ midsection proved to be a lot tougher than Tapia’s less vulnerable face and head.Bt 13 aBt 13b Brandon 2

At the conclusion of Bout #13, referee Hondo Fontane raises the arm of the victorious Brandon Sanchez of the Mariscal Boxing Club of Tijuana after he defeated the always tough Brandon Cruz of The Pride of San Diego Gym.

In Bout #13 it was 17-year-old Brandon Cruz (124 lbs.) taking on 17-year-old Brandon Sanchez (122 lbs.) from the Mariscal Boxing Club of Tijuana, Mexico. This one was a pugilistic classic because you had two pure boxers fighting it out as if it were a chess match. In this toe to toe, cat and mouse slugfest, Sanchez proved to be superior.

*Trivia time: The Star-Spangled Banner takes its melody from ‘The Anacreontic Song’, a British drinking song, and its lyrics from the first stanza of the poem ‘Defense of Fort McHenry’ (Stars and Stripes Forever) written by Francis Scott Key. It is renowned as a difficult anthem to sing, requiring a vocal range of one-and-a-half octaves. Before the adoption of The Star-Spangled Banner as our national anthem in 1931, other songs served as the hymns of American officialdom, including Hail, Columbia and My Country, ‘Tis of Thee. Test yourself on the lyrics that have tripped up a great many people to include actress Roseanne Barr and Cristina Aquielera.

Words to The Star Spangled Banner:

O! say can you see,
By the dawn’s early light,
What so proudly we hailed,
At the twilight’s last gleaming,
Whose broad stripes and bright stars,
Through the perilous fight,
O’er the ramparts we watched,
Were so gallantly streaming?
And the rockets’ red glare,
The bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night,
That our flag was still there;
O! say does that star-spangled
banner yet wave,
O’er the land of the free,
And the home of the brave?
