Huerta scores split decision over Solis

Miguel Angel Huerta

The latest edition of the ‘New Blood’ series took place on Friday from the Omega Products International facility in Corona, California.

The Thompson Boxing Promotions event featured a six-fight card with the main event a solid eight-round light-welterweight bout between Progreso, Mexico’s Luis Solis and Orange, California’s Anahi Torres.

Solis fought from mid-range and kept a consistent left hook, while the smaller Huerta worked his way inside and threw looping head shots, some of which would land.

The end result was 77-75 twice for Huerta and 77-75 Solis for a split decision win for Huerta.

Sinday Amador and Anahi Torres boxed eight frames in a fight that featured two-minute rounds in what was a split draw with the scores of 78-74, 78-74 for each fighter and 76-76 even.

Riverside, California’s Juan Ramon Reyes, (11-1-3, 1KO) remained undefeated with a majority decision win by the scores of 58-56, 60-54 and 57-57 over Victor Capaceta in a featherweight fight.

Isaac Zarate scored two knockdowns in the first frame, prompting a referee stoppage at 2:41 to up his record to 8-1-1 with 2 KO over Guadalupe Barrera in a featherweight fight.

In a four-rounder, junior-welterweights Danny Ramirez (4-1, 2KO) and Wilberth Lopez (4-3, 1KO) fought to a majority decision with 39-37 twice and 38-38 for Lopez in what was Ramirez’s first loss as a professional.

Luis Silva (0-5) and Andres Figueroa (4-0, 3KO) opened up the night in a greatback and forth affair that saw Figueroa getting the nod behind a solid effort from both fighters that was closer than the one-sided rounds scored by the judges.  Silva was cut in the first but was not afraid to trade.  Scores were 40-36 all for Silva.

Notable fighters in attendance: Israel Vasquez, Mauricio Herrera.
