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.
