June 8, 2018:
Noe Lopez and Rafael Munoz Jr engaged in a heated battle in the main event of The G.O.A.T. Promotions’, High Stakes. The bout featured boxing, brawling, a knockdown, momentum changes, drama, and toe to toe action. After four rounds of action Noe Lopez was awarded a well deserved decision to continue his winning ways and Rafael Munoz Jr raised his stock as a game fighter capable of beating anyone on any given day, and will assuredly be brought back for future opportunities. The crowd was treated to an entertaining bout where both boxers gave everything they had and tried their best to knock each other out.
I was happy to help out Coach David Martinez in the corner of Josue “El Zurdo de Oro” Morales in his 4 round match up against Jose Elizondo, in a match that pitted the smooth, southpaw skill of Morales vs the aggressive, boxer/puncher style of Elizondo. The first round saw Morales land the first significant strike but both boxers having their moments during the round. From the second round on, Morales seemed to become more and comfortable and his landed punches increased every round. Elizondo was a strong, and game boxer though and continued applying pressure from the first bell to the last, always dangerous and never more than one punch from changing the momentum of the bout. Ultimately “El Zurdo do Oro’s” technique and poise was too much for Elizondo and “El Zurdo de Oro” was a unanimous decision winner.

Juan Torres beat Jhaquis Davis in 4 rounds
