Perez, Gonzalez win atop LA Fight Club card

Junior welterweight Michael “The Artist” Perez of Newark, New Jersey (24-1-2, 11 KOs) defeated Martin  Honorio (33-10-1, 16 KOs) six round technical decision on Friday night at the Belasco Theatre in downtown Los Angeles. The bout saw a head clash change the fight as Honorio suffered a very bad cut that bleed into his eye, Perez who outboxed from the opening bell kept the cut open and was able to force the ref to waive the bout off. Since the cut was caused by a clash of heads, the fight went to the scorecards in which Perez had won each round on the judges cards at 60-54 on all three cards

The co-main event saw super featherweight Christian “Chimpa” Gonzalez (13-0, 12 KOs) made quick work of former Manny Pacquiao sparring partner, David Rodela (17-13-4, 7 KOs). A counter overhand right over the jab saw Rodela hit the canvas as the fight was waved off at 2:16 of the first round.


Oscar Negrete (13-0 5KOs) earned an eight round decision win over Neftali Campos (11-1 9KOs). Campos, a late minute replacement, proved to be very game, but the Jose Santa Cruz trained fighter, Negrete, was far too much technically. Negrete worked Campos to the body causing the undefeated fighter to have to survive as the fight aged, Negrete was in full control. The judges scored the bout 80-72 on all three cards.



The undercard sawAlexis Rocha (1-0 1KO) win his professional debut by stopping Jordan Rosario (0-4) as the referee was forced to call the bout when Rosario was not firing back. Rafael Gramajo (7-1-1 2KOs) decisioned  Sharone Carter (4-1 2KOs)  with the judges scoring it 59-54 on all three cards.In the opening bout, Ivan “Striker” Delgado (9-0-1 2KOs) decisioned Jesus Sandoval (5-9-3 1KO) of Redwood City, CA in a six round bout.
