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.

CARSON, CA, June, 21, 2014 — The StubHub center in Carson California which has hosted quite a bit of highly memorable events just added another classic to the books with a greatly entertaining 12 round war between welterweights Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero and Yoshihiro Kamegai.

Robert Guerrero (31-2, 18 Kos) of Gilroy, California was making his first appearance in the ring since losing a wide Unanimous Decision to pound for pound king Floyd Mayweather in May of 2013. Not much was known of Yoshihiro Kamegai (of Tokyo Japan other than his high kayo percentage record, that most of his bouts had taken place in Japan and that he’d gone 1-2 when venturing outside of Japan even losing a 10 round decision to Hector Munoz in June of 2013 in this very building.
