By Felipe Leon at ringside

Unbeaten jr welterweight Antonio “Relentless” Orozco (20-0, 15 KOs) won a hard fought and bloody ten round unanimous decision over Mexican veteran Martin “El Brochas” Honorio (32-9-1, 16 KOs) on Thursday night at the Del Mar Fairgrounds in Del Mar, California. Scores were 100-89, 100-89, 99-90. A point was deducted from Honorio in round nine for hitting on the back.

Junior featherweight Manuel “Tino” Avila (15-0, 6 KOs) scored a spectacular second round KO over David “Morita” De La Mora (25-6, 18 KOs). Avila dropped De La Mora three times in round two. Time was 1:52.

In the most competitive fight of the nice, Prince “Tiger” Smalls (5-0-1) took an unpopular unanimous decision with scores of 40-36 three times over the game Victor Serrano (2-4). Fight looked closer than the scores indicated with most rounds close.

Bantamweight Manuel “Suavecito” Roman (17-2-3, 6 KOs) scored a six round unanimous decision over Jose “Cacho” Silveira (15-11, 6 KOs). Scores were 59-54 on all cards. Roman was deducted a point for a low blow in round four.

After four super middleweight rounds, no secret the undefeated Tevin “Triggerman” Watts (3-0-1) stayed as such after a shut out 40-36 three times on the scorecards over Elliot Seymour (1-8, 1KO).

Middleweight Elias Espadas (6-1, 3 KOs) topped 42-year-old Jamal Harris (5-9-4, 3 KOs) over four by scores of 40-36, 39-37, 39-37.

After good back and forth action, Phoenix, AZ’s Walter Santibanes (3-2, 1KO) upset the apple cart by landing a hard overhand right to the chin of Jorge Ruiz (6-2, 2KO) that crumbled to the ground. He beat the count at seven but Jose Cobian waived it off at the 1:16 of the 4th.
