Don Haskins Convention Center, El Paso, Texas
Former WBA and IBO World Featherweight champion Claudio Marrero, 23-2 with 17 knockouts, Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, won a brief one round battle of southpaws. In a bout reminiscent of Juan Kid Meza versus Jaime Garza many years ago,
29-0-2 Guadalajara, Mexican super featherweight Jorge Lara got nailed on the chin swinging inside as the aggressor and got counted out at 0:33 of the first. Lara, used to bullying his opponents early, neglected to consider he was fighting another southpaw and threw caution to the wind, swing on the inside without defense. It was not a smart game plan. Lara rolled around on the floor after going down, unable to regain his footing or equilibrium. Without ego, the bout over, Marrero picked up a confused and dazed Lara from the floor and put him on a stool, with serious considerations for his opponent’s safety.
