Rocky Juarez KOs Escalante in eight

In an exciting jr lightweight crossroads clash, former Olympian Rocky Juarez (29-10-1, 21 KOs) proved he still has something left by scoring an eighth round KO over Antonio Escalante (28-5, 19 KOs) on Saturday night at the Freeman Coliseum in San Antonio, Texas. The 32-year-old Juarez, who amazingly hadn’t won a fight in over four years, took the fight to Escalante and dropped him with an uppercut in round three. Rocky showed a level of aggressiveness absent for a long time and finally battered Escalante to a knee to end it in round eight. After the fight Rocky said he will continue to box and try to achieve his goal of becoming a world champion at either 126 or 130 pounds.

Earlier, unbeaten featherweight Julian Ramirez (5-0, 4 KOs) dropped Steven Gutierrez (4-2-1, 2 KOs) in round four and got the stoppage win after he put Gurierrez down again 16 seconds into round five.
