Whitesands Events Center, Plant City, Florida, USA. In the main fight of the evening in the second middleweight limit (up to 76.2 kg), the Mexican puncher
Manuel Gayegos (19-1-1, 16 KOs) snatched a draw from American prospect
Richard Vansiclen (13-0-1, 6 KOs).
Southpaw from the USA started the fight great, but by the 3rd round the Mexican slugger got used to the opponent – constant pressure and many body shots helped him level the course of the fight.
The fight turned out great and very competitive. It seemed to commentators and most reviewers that Wanciclein had done enough to win, but non-stop pressure from Gayegos convinced the judges that he deserved at least a draw – 96-94 in his favor and twice 95-95.
Draw MD 10.
