Image result for santa cruz vs avalosThis past Saturday night October 14th 2017, Premier Boxing Champions was on the air with a triple header.  Antonio DeMarco (33-6-1, 24 KO’s) pulled off a huge upset when he knocked out the previously undefeated Eddie Ramirez (17-1, 11 KO’s).  Abner Mares (31-2-1, 15 KO’s) also defeated Andres Gutierrez (35-2-1, 25 KO’s), when he pitched a shutout through 10 rounds before the fight was stopped in the 10th round.  The skill level difference was apparent from the opening bell.  Mares was the quicker and more skilled fighter, as he peppered Gutierrez with shot after shot in all 10 rounds.  In the 10th, Mares got rid of Gutierrez, after the doctor took a look at the cut over his eye that was just gushing blood.  Gutierrez was upset, but ultimately unable to continue.

The main event was more of the same, as Leo Santa Cruz (34-1-1, 19 KO’s) absolutely decimated Chris Avalos (27-6, 20 KO’s) in 8 rounds of non stop action.  Santa Cruz hurt Avalos bad in the 4th round, and it looked like Avalos was going to hit the canvas.  Avalon, who is known for having the hardest head and toughest chin in boxing, somehow stayed on his feet and made it out of the round.  Rounds 5-7 were more of the same, as Avalos just kept taking huge shots from Santa Cruz.  Leo would get the TKO victory in the 8th.  Avalon looked like a straight up bobble head in the 8th round, and after an accumulation of punishment, the referee decided to stop the fight, giving Santa Cruz the TKO victory.

Last night on Premier Boxing Champions, the fireworks were exploding, and the bombs were being thrown in the StubHub Center in Carson California, as fans got a rare treat with 4 knockouts in the event.  The fights were so quick, that you were able to see all the undercards in the event.  The card opened up with Jorge Lara (28-0-2, 20 KO’s) completely destroying his idol and former champion, Fernando Montiel (54-6-2, 39 KO’s).  Lara came out swinging for the fences and caught Montiel with big shots in the first round.  After 3 knockdowns, the southpaw Lara, would land a huge right hook on an already hurt Montiel, and knock him out cold.  Lara stays undefeated, and climbs the latter of top prospects for a potential Featherweight title shot.  We also got a bonus fight before the main event, because the night was moving along so quickly, where Light Heavyweight prospect David Benevidez (14-0, 13 KO’s) knocked out Phil “Real Deal” Jackson (16-3,15 KO’s).  Jackson was target practice for Benevidez in the first round, and in the second he got badly hurt with a huge left hook.  Jackson, on wobbly feet, got nailed with another left hook after a flurry from Benevidez, and thats all she wrote.

In the co-featured bout, Thomas Williams Jr defeated Edwin Rodriguez via 2nd round KO in a scheduled 10 round Light Heavyweight bout.  These two came out of their corners like mad men, throwing huge bombs from the get go.  In the second, it looked good early for Rodriguez, after he hit Williams with a big overhand right.  Williams, staggered for a moment landed a huge right hook to even the score.  At the end of the second round, Williams would land a monster of a left hand after a big exchange, that would put Edwin Rodriguez down for the count.  Williams is now in line for a potential World Title fight against Adonis “Superman” Stevenson.

In the main event of the evening, it was the rematch of the 2011 fight of the year, where “Vicious” Victor Ortiz (31-6-2, 24 KO’s) squared of against Andre Berto (31-5, 24 KO’s).  Ortiz got the better of Berto in 2011, handing him his first career loss, and Berto was out for revenge.  In the first round, after feeling each other out for the most part, an accidental head butt opened up a huge gash above the hairline of Victor Ortiz.  The cut was so big, that the blood was pouring down Ortiz’ face.  Perhaps feeling a sense of urgency, Ortiz would start to let his hands go.

In the second round, Ortiz would start throwing the straight left hand, and it was getting through Berto’s guard.  Berto was looking very tight and jittery, perhaps thinking back to 2011, where he lost for the first time.  Ortiz’ third straight right hit Berto while he was off balance, and he went down.  Berto got up, and landed a huge uppercut that Ortiz (by his own admission) never saw coming.  Ortiz then hit the deck, and it was like deja voo and 2011 all over again.  A mirror image of their first fight.  Ortiz was badly hurt though when he got up, and Berto would come charging.  Realizing that Ortiz was on dream street, Berto landed a big left hook, and Ortiz would drop again.  He would just barely beat the 10 count, and when referee Jack Reese asked Victor if he wanted to continue, Ortiz did not respond.  Jack Reese would then stop the fight, and Andre Berto would get his revenge.

After months of negotiation, the rematch is finally a done deal.  Former WBC welterweight champion Victor Ortiz (31-5-2 24 KOs) will be taking on Andre Berto (30-4, 23 KOs) on April 30th 2016 in a highly anticipated rematch  .  The fight will be brought to you from the StubHub Center in Carson, California, and will be broadcast on FOX and FOX Deportes.  On the undercard of Ortiz VS Berto you will also see a super middleweight bout between Edwin Rodriguez (28-1, 19 KO’s) and Thomas Williams Jr (19-1, 13 KO’s).  Also that night, Fernando Montiel (54-5-2, 39 KO’s) will be taking on Jorge Lara (27-0-2, 19 KO’s) in a featherweight bout.

Victor Ortiz and Andre Berto fought for the first time on April 16th of 2011, where Ortiz defeated Berto via unanimous decision, and won the WBC Welterweight title.  Ortiz went on to lose his next 3 fights against Floyd Mayweather, Josesito Lopez, and Luis Collazo respectively.  Berto on the other hand, won his next fight against an overmatched Jan Zavek, but would lose the following two fights against Robert Guerrero and Jesus Soto Karas respectively.

The Ortiz and Berto rematch is a toss up in my mind.  Both fighters have shown flashes of greatness, but have fallen to great fighters.  Berto’s performance against Myaweather was absolutely horrid.  Even Ortiz did better before he got a well deserved sucker punch knockout.  It will be interesting to see which one of these men will be the one to rise to the occasion, and get their career back on track.
