Burgos defeats Gusev!

By Francisco Salazar at ringside

Featherweight Juan Carlos Burgos remained unbeaten with a workmanlike 10 round unanimous decision over Vyacheslav Gusev at the Doubletree Hotel in Ontario, CA. The shorter Gusev (16-2, 3 KO’s) had his moments at times, but Burgos (22-0, 15 KO’s) was the clear winner with his harder and more effective punches. All three judges scored the bout 98-92, 98-92, and 97-93 in favor of Burgos. Burgos is ranked number three in the world by the WBC, while Gusev is ranked number seven by the WBO.

Junior Welterweight Mauricio Herrera (11-0, 5 KO’s) also kept his unbeaten record intact with a 10 round unanimous decision over Luis Alfredo Lugo. Herrera was the more polished fighter of the two, but Lugo (10-9-1, 6 KO’s) hung in there in a losing effort. All three judges scored the bout 100-90, 100-90, and 99-91 in favor of Herrera.

Featherweights Jesus Hernandez (8-0-1, 2 KO’s) and Aaron Garcia (9-1-1, 2 KO’s) fought to a spirited six round majority draw. Hernandez was sharp early, but slowed down considerably in the middle rounds. Garcia took the initative and outworked Hernandez, who suffered a cut over his right eye, during the middle rounds. Hernandez rallied in the final two rounds. One judge scored the bout 58-56 in favor of Garcia, while the remaining two judges scored the bout 57-57.

Welterweight Yakub Shidaev (2-1, 1 KO) won a four round unanimous decision over Ignacio Garcia (2-2-1). All three judges scored the bout 39-37 in favor of Shidaev, which was entertaining and sloppy at times.

Super Welterweight Alberto Herrera (2-0, 2 KO’s) stopped Alfredo Rivera at 45 seconds of the third round in a scheduled four round bout. Rivera (0-5) made it competitive at times, but was dropped by a barrage of punches by Herrera. Referee Dr. Lou Moret stepped in and waved the fight over without even counting.

In a battle of fighters making their professional debuts, Lightweight Oscar Chinchilla won a close four round majority decison over Miguel Oronia. One judge scored the bout even at 38-38 while the other two judges scored the bout 39-37 for Chinchilla.
