8/10/2017 DNTN LA- Charles Huerta (19-5-11K), the Pride of Paramount, won a hard fought rough and tumble affair against Miguel Gonzalez (20-2-17K), in a scheduled eight rounder. The show, promoted by former multi-division champ Oscar DeLaHoya had it all. There were low blows, rabbit shots head butts and this was after TWO ROUNDS. Gonzalez from Mexico, was a free swinger, to say the least. His shots were from all over the place and Huerta had no problems picking them off and punching between them. Gonzalez supposedly had 17 kos, well the guys he stopped must’ve worn concrete boxing shoes and couldn’t move away from those telegraphed punches. When he wasn’t free swinging, he was barging in with his head. The ref had his hands full, with all the rough stuff going down. This isn’t to say it was all Miguel, as he was dropped from a low blow in the SECOND round. He couldn’t equal Huerta in skill so he went with what he had. There were many exchanges but nothing approaching a legit knockdown. In the eighth round they bumped heads and Huerta walked away with a bad cut to his forehead causing the doc to deem him unable to continue. Since he was ahead on the cards, Huerta was awarded a ‘split decision’ win. Huerta looked sharp and showed a punishing jab early on as well as nice combos. The wide swinging Gonzalez landed some decent body shots but really didn’t do much else, LEGALLY.
In the semi main, oft beaten Daniele Perrales ((11-10-ID-5k) made a big mistake in challenging upstart Christian Gonzalez (16-1-14K) and paid dearly for it. In less than three full rounds, the ‘ol vet got ten rounds worth of ass whippin’. Gonzalez dropped ever punch in the book on poor Perrales, busting his nose earlier and finally putting him on all fours in the third, leaving Perrales wondering when it would be safe to get back up. He was on all fours for a good three minutes. This thing should’ve been called off the minute the contracts were inked.
