Sanchez, Bourland post impressive victories

Sanchez defeats Huerta
Sanchez defeats Huerta

By John J. Raspanti

Showing no ill effects from 13 months out of the ring, fringe welterweight Alan Sanchez (19-3, 10 KOs) scored a fifth-round stoppage over veteran Miguel Angel Huerta (28-15, 14 KOs) at a sold-out Woodland Community Center in Woodland, CA. Friday night.


Sanchez used lateral movement and a stinging right to control most of the fight. Huerta, a southpaw, landed an occasional left, but his bull rushes were met by stiff jabs and quick feet. Before round six commenced, Ringside physician Gary Finese decided that Huerta had taken too much punishment to continue.


In the co-main on the Paco Presents and Don Chargin production, gutsy light heavyweight Ryan Bourland (13-1, 5 KOs) and Cesar Ruiz (5-5, 2 KOs) had the boxing fans in attendance on their feet - as they waged war for six rounds, with Bourland escaping with a split decision victory. Bourland landed the harder blows, but Ruiz battled back, stunning Bourland in round four. Scores were 58-56, 59-55 for Bourland, and 58-56 for Ruiz. 

Featherweight Alberto Torres (10-0-2, 4 KOs) remained undefeated by scoring a workman like six round decision over Angel Aguilar. Torres volume punching was too much for Aguilar (8-13, 1 KOs).


Ivan Vegara, also fighting in the featherweight division, knocked out overmatched Jose Mora (1-4) in two rounds. Vegara (3-0, 2 KOs) stalked and popped, strafing Mora with combinations. Mora tasted the canvas three times before the referee stopped the contest.


Exciting lightweight Steven Rapadas (1-0-1, 1) got off the deck to stop Luis Silva (4-11, 1 KO) in the opening fight of the night.
