Hearn’s top prospects were marked by bright knockouts: video


T Mobile Arena, LasVegas, USA. The vacant WBC US super middleweight title (up to 76.2 kg) was contested against local prospect Diego Pacheco (16-0, 13 KOs) and Puerto Rican
Enrique Collaso (16-3-1, 11 KOs).

The fight began with a slow and not very bright chess confrontation with jabs. Pacheco turned out to be a very cool counter-puncher – he lured his opponent out, countered great.

In the 4th round, he began to work harder and more aggressively. The knockout came in the 5th three-minute period – first, he dropped the opponent hard, then finished off the referee to the go-ahead.

Pacheco TKO 5.

He is very cool.

Local top lightweight prospect (up to 61.2 kg) and former amateur ring star Mark Castro (8-0, 6 KOs) scored a bright knockout in a fight with a young Mexican
Kevin Montiel (6-2-2, 3 KOs).

Aaron Aponte (6-0-1, 2 KOs) from the USA and
Fernando Angel Molina (8-0-1, 3 KOs) from Mexico met in a full-time fight and remained undefeated, although both were on the canvas.

Now Aponte goes down!

This is a WAR! #CaneloGGG3

The judges were divided: 76-74, 74-76 and 75-75.

Draw SD 8.

Molina was a little closer to victory – he looked more confident, finished the fight in attacks, and the referee mistakenly counted him a knockdown.
