Hernandez flees; Holm beats sub

Ringside by Chris Cozzone

Holly Holm (26-1-3, 7 KOs) finished the night with another victory, but it wasn’t over Melissa “Huracan” Hernandez. Tonight at Isleta Casino & Resort, shortly before the main event was scheduled to go, Hernandez bailed out on her pound-for-pound showdown with Holm, fleeing the building with the excuse that that she would not fight, her corner not having seen Holm wrap her hands. Despite not having been available during Holm’s hand-wrapping, and regardless of offers to re-wrap, Hernandez took her gear and fled. Replacing Hernandez on a literal last-minute, Victoria Cisneros (3-8-2) stepped in to fight Holm. Though losing virtually every round, Cisneros gave a game performance, to lose with scores of 100-90 and 99-91 twice. On the undercard: Suzannah Warner (9-8) won a split decision over Jodie Esquibel (5-5-1) to retain her NABF minimumweight title. David Proa (6-1, 6 KOs) retired after two rounds in a six-rounder against Robert Guillen (5-4-3); Jessica Sanchez (1-1-2) and Amanda Crespin (0-1-1) fought a four-round draw; Michael Brooks (2-0, 2 KOs) TKO’d Christian Bruffy-Holmes (0-1) at 1:45 of round two. Stay tuned for full report tomorrow.
