LATEST FIGHT REPORT
By Barbara Pinella – Our main event saw super bantamweights take to the ring, as Isaac “Dinamita” Zarate (14-3-3, 2 KOs) took on Christian Ayala (11-2, 4 KOs). This fight was scheduled for eight rounds.
No damage was done to either fighter in the first round, as they seemed to be measuring each other and feeling each other out. That all changed in the second as both men picked up the action and landed punches. In the third, they continued throwing and landing several punches in a row, not just throwing one and stepping back. Zarate was proving to Ayala that he had the most skill.
We saw some very good, heavy punches land for both fighters in the fourth. Neither man spending much time on the body, Isaac a bit more, but the head shots were accurate for both men. The fifth was much like the fourth, with some solid leather landing for each fighter. But Christian was getting sloppier, while Zarate stayed consistent.
As the fight went on, Ayala was holding more and more, and that was very evident in the sixth round. Referee Raul Caiz, Jr. had to break them up several times during those three minutes. Zarate launched a good headhunting attack in the seventh and was able to find his target often.
We moved into the eighth and final of this hard-fought contest. There had been “Isaac” chants during this entire fight and they picked up in the last three minutes. This final round was a bit sloppy at times, but Isaac was still able to find his target. That would cause Ayala to hold again. This fight was also full of headbutts, blood, and several slips to the canvas. We went to the judges for their decision. The three that count saw the fight all for Zarate, 77-75 twice, and 78-74.
ook that bad, but Christian was saying that he couldn’t see. The match became a technical draw.
