Fast rising Argentinean power puncher Jesus Cuellar took another step up the featherweight ladder last Saturday night at the Little Creek Casino in Shelton, Washington. Showcasing his skills in the headline bout of Goossen Promotions’ Showtime Extreme quadruple-header, Cuellar scored an exciting fifth round TKO over tough Mexican challenger Ruben “El Canelito” Tamayo to defend his interim WBA featherweight title.

Cuellar (26-1 20KOs 126 lbs), of Buenos Aires, said before the bout he was looking to make a statement and, as the fight got underway, he certainly appeared to be working towards making that statement. The aggressive southpaw pressed from the outset, stepping in behind stiff right jabs and following up with hard combinations. He quickly set a fast pace to the bout, cutting the distance and pushing his opponent back. Tamayo (25-5-4 17KOs 124.8 lbs.), also a southpaw, met his opponent’s aggression with his own arsenal of punches, firing back as Cuellar got close and finding some success with short counter right hooks, but the tempo of the fight favored Cuellar and, although Tamayo made it an entertaining fight early on, Cuellar was clearly getting the better of most exchanges and winning rounds.
