Thursday evening’s Jibaro Boxing Promotions’ show ends early

February 10, 2018 No Comments

that would be, the Jibaro Boxing Promotion’s show ends early in the morning, on Friday, February 9th. On average, a boxing show with 16 matches will last five hours and even if you begin promptly at 8 p.m., you’re likely to finish up at close to or a little past 1:00 a.m. If you sprinkle in a few delays, a touch of controversy, music, a marketing ploy for an upcoming show, that time can stretch and you’ll soon be wishing and hoping for a plethora of first-round stoppages and not the classic matches that have made the sport great.

Without further ado, as if on such a time constraint, we will now plow through the results from Thursday’s entertaining but rather lengthy show:

Bout #1,

Bout #1 featured 27-year-old Luis Cueto Hernandez (l) of San Luis, Sonora, Mexico, who was making his pro debut, taking on the more experienced, 32-year-old, super welterweight Gloferson Ortizo (r) of Tustin, Calif. (5-0-1). Not a good idea!  All photos: Jim Wyatt

The bout started going Gloferson’s way late in round two after Hernandez got caught with several hard blows to the head. As a result, he had to start holding on for dear life. With the punishment continuing into round three, referee Soto soon moved in to mercifully stop this onesided beat down.

After the third round stoppage, we see referee Jesus Soto raising the arm of the victorious Gloferson Ortizo whose record now improves to 6-0-1 while Hernandez’s record falls to (0-1).

Prior to the start of Bout #2, we see lightweights George Carranza from Hayward, Calif. (right) and Sergio Vazquez, (left) from Ensenada, B. C., Mexico, getting set to face each other in their professional debuts.

Before long, the accumulation of blows from Sergio Vazquez to George Carranza’s midsection had begun to take their toll. In the above photo, we see Carranza bending over and grimacing in pain.

With his nose bleeding and the punches landing so readily in favor of his opponent, there was nothing Carranza could do but watch as the referee called for an immediate stoppage and then walked him back to his far-off corner.

After the second round stoppage, we see referee Jesus Soto raising the arm of the victorious Sergio Vazquez.

Prior to Bout #3, the super featherweight combatants Marcos “Mouse” Ochoa (l) and Arnol “Hitman” Guzman (r) met in the center of the ring for final instructions from referee Jesus Soto.

Down for the count, Marcos Ochoa was probably thinking, “Oh well that’s #18, so much for the “Mouse” that roared. That guy really packs a punch, especially to the midsection.”

At the conclusion of Bout #3, we see referee Jesus Soto raising the arm of the victorious Arnol Guzman who now improves to (4-1-1, 2 KOs) while “The Mouse” drops to (0-18).

In Bout #4, they had former opponents doing battle, 18-year-old Rene “El Temible” Miranda (4-0-1, 2 KOs) (r) and out for revenge 21-year-old Esteban Cayetano (left) (2-4, 2 KOs).

Once again, Rene “El Temible” Miranda came through with the victory by virtue of landing more punches, round after round, especially with his combinations, while Cayetano seemed content to throw less often and only go for the knockout.

Bout #5 was an interesting matchup of super flyweights featuring 26-year-old, righty Jose Emmanuel “Kobe” Lopez (l) from Ensenada and the taller, 18-year-old Jorge Castro (r) from Ciudad Obregon, Sonora, Mexico (1-0, 1 KO) who benefits big-time from his stamina, accuracy and phenomenal reach.

At the conclusion of Bout #5, we see referee Jesus Soto raising the arm of the victorious Jorge Castro after his defeat of the game Emmanuel Lopez who gave him quite a tussle.

Some might say, “Isn’t that putting the cart before the horse?”        In all the hustle and bustle of the combatants involved in Thursday evening’s Main Event, Boxing Promoter Saul Rios of Borizteca Boxing Promotions, ala Don King style, went up into the ring with one of his top signees, Super Flyweight sensation Dewayne Beamon to talk up the potential match-up of Beamon versus Victor “El Chaky” Sandoval fighting for a title in June. With both fighters at this moment facing an immediate opponent: Beamon signed to fight Angel Ramos on Friday, February 16th and Sandoval’s opponent directly across the ring, both Angel Ramos, Beamon’s opponent and Jairo Gutierrez, Sandoval’s opponent, were most likely riled up by these shenanigans. “What are we, sliced liver?” Ramos’ sparring might be a lot more intense this week and who knows the heavy bag he’s using might lose all of its stuffing.

Prior to their 10 round bout, both Victor “El Chaky” Sandoval (r) and Jairo Gutierrez (l) finally got to listen to the final instructions from their referee Fernando Renteria.

Since Victor “El Chaky” Sandoval doesn’t have the raw power of say Iron Mike Tyson or Sergey “The Krusher” Kovalev, he has to be steady, methodical as he works his opponent down, until that white flag comes out.

Before the final bell, up went the arm of the local champion, Victor Sandoval, 27-3, 19 KOs after he managed to wear down Jairo Gutierrez, another tough opponent, by way of picking him apart using movement, body shots, and counters.

After Sandoval’s victory, there they were again, boxer Dewayne Beamon and his promoter Saul Rios. “Wait a minute,” said Sandoval. “Didn’t we already discuss this? You Sir, are as persistent as a housefly! If you want, I’ll go right now and get you some gloves and we can fight tonight.”

Bout #7, a six-round featherweight contest featured Jose “Hollywood” Estrella (r) from Tijuana taking on Miguel Tamayo (l) from Ciudad Obregon, Sonora, Mexico.

After Tamayo took this vicious shot to the liver in round two, down he went in the neutral corner and up went the arm of the victorious Jose “Hollywood” Estrella who now improves to 20-13-1, 14 KOs.

In Bout #8, they featured super featherweights, 19-year-old Cesar Noriega (3-0, 2 KOs) taking on the 25-year-old Alfredo Pitta (3-11-1, 1 KO). Both are from Tijuana.

Noriega (with back to the camera) keeps looking for Pitta’s right hand to drop before unloading his most powerful weapon, the left uppercut to floor Pitta. And yes, his patience finally paid off.

Lying there on his back, Pitta, like knockout victims before him, must have begun to wonder, “Who put the lights out?”

There were several things that led up to that perfectly thrown left uppercut. It may have been after Alfredo Pitta had gotten a bit testy, uppity, and started using this sarcastic grin as he walked back to his corner. Or, it may have been all those punches he used to pound Noriega in his back. After Pitta landed on his back and up went Noriega’s arm, all was forgiven.

Voted most popular with the ladies, Cesar Noriega’s very large harem gathered around for a photo with their hero.

Bout #9: You’ve got to respect this guy, Jair “Zurdo” Patino who is from San Luis Rio Colorado, Sonora, Mexico. As a true professional on the world stage, he feels that under no circumstances is he required to allow anyone to take his photo.

With this yahu taking all these photos of me, perhaps it’s time to get my mouth headed over to an entirely different direction.

Soon enough, referee Jesus Soto was rushing over to the fallen boxer to see if he could give him an assist.

At this point, the referee is having a devil of a time trying to get Mr. Patino to pose for the ceremonial arm raising. “We get it! You don’t want anyone to take your picture. When you lose, your face is off limits. But you always lose.”

Next up, Bout #10, was without a doubt, the “Bout of the Night, Week, Month or maybe Year.” What an effort these two gave. This four round bantamweight clash featured nothing less than Esteban Camacho (r) and his formidable foe Wilebaldo Garcia (l) going at it for four solid rounds ala the Arturo Gatti/Micky Ward wars.

In the end, the judges awarded Esteban Camacho (white trunks, red trim), now 5-3, 2 KOs, the unanimous decision victory while Wilebaldo Garcia (blue trunks) now drops to 1-1, 1 KO.

Bout #11 featured two more locals, 19-year-old, super lightweight Esteban “Towy” Sánchez going up against the winless 28-year-old Abraham “Yocu” Yocupicio also from Tijuana. You would have thought the well sculptured Sanchez would have made quick work of Yocupicio but that never happened. Even with his awkward style, the game Yocupicio hung tough and despite several knockdowns, he was right there, right up until the final bell.

With the win, Esteban Sanchez’s record (black trunks) improves to 3-0, 1 KO, while Abraham Yocupicio’s record falls to (0-5).

Bout #12 featured 20-year-old Jose Maria Carrillo DOB 9-2-97 (all black trunks), who was making his Pro Debut. Carrillo had brought with him a classic Mexican sombrero all the way from his hometown of Manteca, Calif. to wear as he made his ring entrance to face fellow bantamweight 19-year-old Abram “La Cobrita” Sanchez from Mexicali, B. C., Mexico, Record 0-2-1, DOB 8-2-98, Global ID 746802.

(l to r) Abram “La Cobrita” Sanchez (0-2-1) and Jose Maria Carrillo who was making his Pro Debut.

At the end of their quick, 26-second scrap, the victorious Jose Maria Carrillo once again wore his lucky sombrero as referee Fernando Renteria raised his arm in victory, his first of many.

Bout #13, a scheduled four-round super middleweight bout, between 6’1″ tall, 25-year-old, orthodox boxer Quilisto “Quilo The Kid” Madera from Stockton, Calif. and Jorge “Peeny” Rios didn’t get very far as Madera made quick work of Rios. With the win, Madera improves to 8-1-0, 5 KOs while Rios drops to (2-7, 1 KO, a victim of 6 KOs).

Showing little sign of recovery, referee Fernando Renteria looks into the eyes of Jorge Rios and decides to wave off the bout.

After the stoppage of their bout, we see referee Fernando Renteria raising the arm of the victorious Ector Madera.

Bout #14 featured Quilisto Madera’s younger brother, super lightweight Hector Ector” Madera, who is also from Stockton, Calif. The 5’9½” tall, 21-year-old (DOB 8-20-96), Record 2-0, 1 KO, Global ID 765419 had an easy time of it when facing 41-year-old Roman “Canelo” Mendez from Tijuana, Global ID 692694, DOB 11-27-76, who after Thursday’s KO loss, is now a victim of 16 straight knockouts with only three of his bouts getting past the first round.

Boxers (l to r) Roman “Canelo” Mendez, Ecter Madera.

Bout #15 had Christian “Chris” Thomas to face Antonio Montero and to the best of my knowledge, it never took place.

For the final bout of the evening, Bout #16, a super middleweight match, they had the always popular 23-year-old, 6’1″ tall Ricardo “Maikito” Martinez (Global ID 631562, 10-0, 7 KOs) from Tijuana, going up against 24-year-old Isaias “El Profeta” Ortega (Global ID 732609, 2-2, 1 KO) from Mexicali, who in his last outing won a mixed decision victory over the undefeated, 33-year-old San Diegan Jorge “El Bandido” Escalante (9-1-1, 6 KOs).

While going the distance, both Ricardo Martinez and Isaias Ortega thumped each other pretty good. In the end, it was Martinez coming away with the slim, decision victory to improve his record to 11-0, 7 KOs. Photo (bottom right) shows veteran referee Fernando Renteria holding up the arm of the victorious Ricardo Martinez who has his arm around his proud father, the boxing legend Miguel Martinez.
