As donations poured into one room during a silent auction to raise money for fallen fighter Daniel Franco, the sweet science was on display in the other at Exchange L.A. Nightclub in Downtown Los Angeles for another installment of Bash Boxing’s DTLA FIGHTS. With six of the eight scheduled bouts reaching the judges scorecards, the hotly contested fights kept the crowd engaged and on their feet for pretty much the entire evening.
Here are the results:
In the main event of the evening, undefeated prospect Jessy Martinez (7-0) survived an early knockdown to continue his undefeated reign against a very tough Vincente Guzman (3-6-1). But it was one heck of a back and forth war. Guzman came out firing, looking to teach the boxer how to brawl. And for at least one round, Guzman was giving the Outlaws Boxing Gym prospect an education in the finer arts of dirty boxing. At range, Martinez dazzled with his jab and worked nicely behind several punch combinations. However, when Guzman closed the distance, his power shots scored heavily up against the ropes.
Late in the fight, a tiring Guzman kept being tagged by Martinez in the pivotal 4th round. Guzman’s response was to keep holding and pushing Martinez around the ring, prompting several warnings from veteran referee Lou Moret.
