Andre Galarza scored his first career knockout stopping Ada m Ramirez 80 seconds into the opening round. Seconds into the fight we have a collision of heads.

Andre Glarza is one fight away from evening his record after a 2nd straight win. Clinton Chavez & Gabriel Gabaldon are to remain active and keep building their records after wins over veteran foes. Jazzma Houge called for it and I second the idea of a trilogy bout against Jesus PerArdua. Naverrete will most likely defends is title belt a few more time before moving up to a bigger mid-level title. “Angel Baby” just won his belt and as so a defense would be in order next. One source tells me a Jose Luis Sanchez versus Issac Luna rematch could be a contractual obligation. The Sanchez Brother Boxing camp would rather jump back into the stop light for a rematch for “Guero” with Josh “Pitbull” Torres. Torres won his 7th in a row and as he’s said in interviews has his eyes on a big fight.
