All Star Boxing returned to the Quiet Cannon Country Club of Montebello, California Friday night with four exciting bouts. In the main event jr Welterweight local prospect Jaime “Fabian” Ocegueda (4-0, 2KOs) stopped Alonso Loeza of Bakersfield in round two.
Ocegueda came out early jabbing following with solid rights, rocking Loeza’s head back. Later in the round, a vicious left hook staggered Loeza but in round two Ocegueda threw one-two combinations that landed solidly as Loeza kept pressing forward before running into a crushing right hand that sent Loeza to the canvas. Referee Jerry Cantu stopped the contest at 2:08 of round two. Fabian Ocegueda scored a second round knockout improving his record to (5-0, 3KOs).
Russian sensation Alexander Podrezov (4-1) training out of Van Nuys, California and Bakersfield’s Alejandro Arteaga made his pro debut by exchanging knockdowns as they went four rounds in a jr Welterweight bout. Podrezov came out firing one-two combinations as Arteaga squared up later in the round. Prodrezov scored a knockdown with left hook but Arteaga would not be finished. In round two, in what appeared to be a slip, Prodrezov was ruled down by referee Jerry Cantu as Prodrezov continued to box from the outside. The Russian continued to work the jab and circle the ring as Arteaga punched wildly as he began to throw more combinations cruising to a unanimous decision win. In the end all three judges scored the bout 38-36 in favor of Alexander Podrezov as he improves his record to (5-1) Arteaga drops to (0-1).
In Super Welterweight action, the Bay Area’s Aaron Coley and Jason Gonzalez out of Long Beach made their professional debuts as they entertained the crowd with non-stop action. The southpaw Coley landed flushing rights early that would knock Gonzalez’ mouthpiece out of the ring and continued his assault with combinations, but Gonzalez kept fighting forward as he landed a vicious uppercut that would stop Coley’s momentum. Both clinched and worked the inside in round two as Gonzalez began to smother Coley, a series of body shots would bother Coley at the end of the round. The action continued as they exchanged blows throughout the fight. In the final round, Gonzales caught Coley with a body shot that staggered Coley, however Coley continued to punch as he landed a left hook once again knocking Gonzalez’ mouthpiece out as they exchanged to the final bell giving the crowd their money’s worth. In the end one judge scored it 40-36, and the other two judges had it identical 39-37 as Aaron Coley wins his pro debut as he now stands at (1-0).
