Auditorio Municipal Fausto Gutiérrez Moreno, Tijuana, Mexico. In the main event of the show, a promising fighter of the second featherweight (up to 59 kg) Elnur Abduraimov (10-1, 9 KOs) from Uzbekistan sensationally lost in prospect-clash to a young Mexican
Angel Daniel Garcia (15-0, 12 KOs).
The fighters abandoned pre-match reconnaissance and immediately switched to active operations. The start of the battle, as expected, was better for the favorite: he controlled the course of the battle, dictated the distance and pace. “German” (yes, that’s such a nickname) Garcia methodically put pressure on Abduraimov, while working out very solidly in defense.
By the equator, the underdog had already turned the tide of the battle. Attempts by the favorite to throw off the “German” from the tail did not bring results, they had to increasingly engage in very undesirable exchanges with the opponent. Garcia completely seized the initiative and began to disturb the guest with accented and accurate shots.
The fight ended after the 7th round – Abduraimov did not come out for the 8th three-minute round.
Garcia TKO 8.
