While I was sitting at the Doctor’s office on Monday, I was reminiscing about this weekend’s fights.
There were definitely some impressive performances on Saturday night and a huge upset as well.
The one that really comes to mind was Houston’s Victor Sanchez who pulled a huge upset victory over Brownsville’s Jerry Guevara. Guevara was coming off a huge win against one of Manny Pacquiao’s fighters and went into the fight with a perfect 7-0 record while Sanchez comes in with a 2-3 record.
Most people saw this fight as a cakewalk for Guevara and didn’t give Sanchez a chance in you know what. But little do people know that Sanchez defeated two top prospects from Top Rank and has been involved in some tough fights.
Early in the fight, Guevara was controlling the action and even sent Sanchez to the canvas in the first round. Once I saw that I figured it was going to be a quick bout.
But Sanchez came back strong and ended up knocking Guevara down not once, twice, or even three times. In fact, he sent Guevara crashing down to the canvas an impressive four times as he caught him with some thunderous body shots.
After the fight, we at the media table all had Sanchez winning the fight but weren’t sure how the judges would call it. Well, they agreed with us and Sanchez ended up getting the victory.
