Verdejo dominates in HBO debut
130 lbs Puerto Rican super star Felix Verdejo (18-0 13KOs) dominated tough Ivan Najera (16-1 8 KOs) as he showed why he might just be the future of boxing. Verdejo showed impressive combination punches as he dominated each and every round of the fight , but most notable was a left uppercut that dropped Najera in the fifth round that seemed to dramatically hurt Najera.
Nonetheless, Najera who didn’t win a round on our scorecard stayed game as he walked in square into Verdejo for the majority of the night that allowed Verdejo to land perfectly placed combination punches that seemed more out of a video game than reality. According to the HBO telecast, Verdejo hurt his hand as he stepped off the gas in the final three or so rounds.
The final scores were 100-88 two times and 99-89 all in favor of Felix Verdejo
