Light Heavyweight powerhouse Chris “Hard Hittin’” Henry needed just 2:20 of the first round to overwhelm and knock cold former two time WBA Light Heavyweight Champion Hugo Hernan Garay in the co-feature event on “The Champion Returns” PPV card last night from Monterrey, Mexico, that also featured the triumphant return of ring legend Erik “El Terrible” Morales.  The pony-tailed Garay came charging out of his corner at the opening bell, head down, looking to butt Henry and turn the bout into a street fight by throwing chopping blows behind the head, and was met with two hooks to the head for all of his hectic troubles that hurt him at the :20 second mark.

The size difference between the two was very evident from the get go, as the heavily muscled belter know as “The Pride of the Golden Triangle” Henry appeared to be a couple of inches taller and more solid than his South American foe.  Both men landed several punches during a hectic exchange, when Henry shoved Garay back off of him several feet like a sack of flour, and began to get his jab untracked in an attempt to set up his big right hands.  Henry showed improved defense and head movement as he slipped and blocked Garay’s leads while putting in hurtful counters of his own, and threw Garay back yet again when the former champion tried to butt him when the two fell into close quarters.

HOUSTON, TEXAS, March 22, 2010 – The shots slam into the heavy bag at Houston’s Main Gym with force and velocity.  Jabs, hooks, right hands, and uppercuts knock the big bag back and up on it’s chains, the inanimate catcher of mayhem jingles back and forth like an old man getting caught up in a crosswalk in rush hour traffic in downtown Houston, confused and wondering which way he should turn.  Chris Henry grunts as he whips all of his body to the left and then to the right side, throwing everything he has into his punches, the blows which are designed to crush the fighting spirit, to break the bones, and disfigure the flesh of two time WBA Light Heavyweight Champion Hugo Hernan Garay.

Chris Henry has been waiting to get number three WBA ranked Senor Garay back into the squared circle for the last 13 years, wanting payback for what he perceives as an injustice that happened in Argentina at the 1997 World Under 19 Amateur Tournament where native Argentinian Garay was awarded with a hometown decision over Henry after a bitterly fought struggle. The big hitting belter Henry, known as “The Pride of the Golden Triangle” will finally get his long awaited opportunity to exact revenge on March 27th in Monterrey, Mexico, as he meets Garay in the Co-Feature on “The Champion Returns” PPV card that features the return of the great ring legend Erik “El Terrible” Morales in the Main Event.
