NORTH HOLLYWOOD, CA — Awright, fight fans, here we go with the second annual West Coast Boxing Hall of Fame this Sunday, September 25th, at the Garland Hotel in North Hollywood, California. This event, which is guaranteed to knock you off your pins, is once again hosted by President Rick Farris and yours truly. Although Vice President of this organization, I can honestly say it is President Rick Farris who is the driving force in lauding these great fighters of yesteryear. Rick is an absolute work-horse in making sure every ‘i’ is dotted and ‘t’ crossed in memorializing these hard-nosed pugs after the cheers have died down on their respective careers.

LOS ANGELES, CA, May 24, 2010 – 9,200 people filled the Staples Center in downtown LA  hoping to witness and be a part of what appears to be the final chapter in a great and historic series.   The atmosphere in the arena reached a fevered pitch as the fighters made their way into the ring accompanied by a charged up performance from a live in ring mariachi band.  Both fighters received rousing applause during their respective introductions, although Rafael Marquez’s fans were either more numerous or louder in their appreciation.

Israel ‘Magnifico’ Vasquez (44-4, 32 KOs) wasted no time at the opening bell, those thinking that each fighter might take it a little easier or more tactical this time around were proven otherwise immediately as Vasquez appeared to be gunning for an early stoppage throwing wild right hand haymakers. Rafael Marquez (38-4, 34 KOs) probably the more technically proficient fighter of the two momentarily threw skill out the door to answer Vasquez with a vicious combination of hard shots of his own before settling down and using his jab to time the rushes of Vasquez.   The action slowed considerably after the opening salvos with both fighters showing each other a lot of respect while standing in close quarters looking for openings.  Marquez continued having success with his jab allowing him to unleash a brutal uppercut that landed flush on the chin of Vasquez, the first round ended with Vasquez already showing bad damage to one of his eyes.
