Ken Hissner reported on the battles that occurred on Mexican Independence Day at the Commerce Casino in Commerce, California. In the centerpiece, William ‘Camaron’ Zepeda effectively protected his WBA Continental Americas Lightweight title by beating Mercito ‘Guerrero No Mercy’ Gesta in the 6th round. Zepeda showed a dominant efficiency, providing a vicious body attack that left Gesta on the defensive. Gesta suffered swelling under his ideal eye and sustained a cut on his left eyebrow. Ultimately, Zepeda landed a series of unanswered punches in the 6th round, causing the referee stopping the fight.
In the co-main occasion, Victor Morales, the WBA Inter-Continental Featherweight champ, thrived over Edwin ‘Pupo’ Palomares. Despite Palomares’s strength, Morales managed the fight with well-timed punches. Palomares continued to press forward, however Morales countered efficiently. By completion of the match, Morales had actually caused considerable damage on Palomares, with both eyes almost inflamed shut. Morales won by consentaneous choice, with the judges’ ratings showing his supremacy.
Yoka Valle, the IBF and WBO World Minimum champ, effectively protected her title against Maria ‘La Imparabal’ Micheo Santizo. Valle showcased her ability with a strong left to Santizo’s chin, while both fighters showed exceptional strategies. Valle landed various overhand rights and left hooks throughout the fight, triggering Santizo to bleed from a cut on her nose. Despite her efforts, Santizo might not conquer Valle’s offending attack, leading to a unanimous choice success for Valle.
