FRIDAY NIGHT RESULTS | CANCIO REPEATS, SOTO UPSETS ACOSTA

The first fight between the two was considered an upset but WBA super featherweight champion Andrew “El Chango” Cancio (21-4-2, 16 KOs) proved that it shouldnt have come as such the surprise as he repeated the feat over Alberto “Explosivo” Machado (21-2, 17 KOs) on Friday night at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino in Indio, California.

Cancio fought his way through a cut early on but found his footing as he punished Machado in round two before a body shot in the third stopped Machado with the time at Time was 1:01.

“It feels good,” said Cancio.”I was going for the head and the body was there and I took it. I’m here to stay. It’s not a fluke, and I’m ready for the other champions. After the knockdown, I thought he was getting up, but he knew if he got up I was coming for him.”

In a genuine upset Elwin “Pulga” Soto (15-1, 11 KOs) scored a twelfth round stoppage to dethrone WBO light flyweight world champion Angel “Tito” Acosta (20-2, 20 KOs).

Soto had the champion in trouble in the third but Acosta came back and was seemingly heading towards a successful title defence until Soto found a shot to rock him in the last stanza, the bout quickly being waved off thereafter by referee Thomas Taylor.

6’7 super welterweight Sebastian “The Towering Inferno” Fundora (13-0, 9 KOs) scored a fourth round TKO over Manuel “Baby” Zepeda (17-1, 4 KOs) at the WinnaVegas Casino in Sloan, Iowa. Fundora made the previously unbeaten Zepeda quit after only four rounds.

I've been in the boxing industry for over 16 years but been a fan for almost double that figure.

I've also had several articles published by reputable magazines and you can usually catch me around ringside.
