Big weekend for HG Boxing

It was a big Saturday for Mexican promotional firm HG Boxing. The company was involved in two major nationally televised cards as the rivalry between Mexican and Filipino fighters continued at full blast.

In Tepic, Nayarit, Mexico’s Juan Jose “Goofy” Montes (18-1, 12 KOs) dropped Filipino Richard Garcia (21-11-1, 5 KOs) three times en route to a fourth round TKO to retain his WBC super flyweight Youth Championship. Filipino Edren Dapudong (18-2, 10 KOs) turned the tables by surprising Mexican Jesus “Zurdo” Jimenez (28-6, 20 KOs), flooring Jimenez twice in a shocking first round KO to claim the vacant WBC world silver flyweight championship.

The same night in San Juan del Rio, Queretaro, experienced Mexican Omar Niño (29-3-2, 11 KOs) regained the WBC light flyweight title by taking a unanimous decision over Filipino world champion Rodel Mayol (26-5-2, 20 KOs). Yesterday in Guadalajara, HG Boxing chief Hector Garcia presided over a dinner for Niño honoring the old and new 108lb champion.
