Alan Sanchez is looking better and better. Sanchez 15-3-1 8KO’s defeated Ed Paredes 35-5-1 23KO’s in a dominant boxing clinic that featured some good exchanges between the two fighters. Sanchez used an effective jab while circling to his left to keep the hard punching Paredes at the end of his punches for most of the night.
Paredes had his moments in the fight and landed some good punches but didn’t throw in combination enough to upset Sanchez’s rhythm. Paredes appeared to slow in the seventh round as Sanchez began to dominate with a solid jab that controlled the fight throughout the evening.
At the end of the tenth round Sanchez landed a thunderous right left hook combination that dropped Paredes half way through the ropes. Paredes beat the count only to be saved by the bell in the coming seconds.
Official scores for the fight were 98-91 twice and 97-92
Sanchez added another good victory to his resume, with wins over Jorge Silva and Artemio Reyes Sanchez is a good prospect to keep an eye on as he appeared to be ready for another try at stepping up the competition. Sanchez now has three consecutive wins after a unanimous decision loss to former welterweight titleholder Luis Collazo back in September of last year.
The Co-Main Event was a showcase for Australian “Wild” Will Tomlinson 23-1-1 13KO’s as he stopped Miguel Zamudio 29-6-1 17KO’s in the eighth round. From the onset of the first round Tomlinson was aggressive coming in with a good lead left hook that couldn’t miss. Zamudio was docked a point in the first round for an intentional head butt. Tomlinson showed a lot of energy throwing punches in bunches moving in and out, using side to side movement to control the fight at an aggressive pace that Zamudio was simply unable to keep up with.
In the eighth round Zamudio came out looking worn and had little steam left on his punches. Referee Thomas Taylor had his eye on Zamudio as his right eye was swelling shut from the pounding of Tomlinson left hooks. Taylor backed Zamudio into the ropes and landed a hard combination that ended prompted referee Thomas Taylor to jump in for a very appropriate stoppage at 56 seconds into the eighth round.
