This contest pits two great Texas amateurs and features the boxer/puncher in Ayala versus the strength and power hitting of Juarez with the venue being the Alamodome in San Antonio in a contest that pits two of the most crowd pleasing featherweights in the history of the Lone Star State.

ROUND ONE: Ayala comes out with guard high and circling to his left as Juarez is stalking after him looking for the big punch to end it all. Both fighters spar in ring centre with Ayala getting through with a few right hands which capture the attention of the powerful, yet plodding Juarez. It is Ayala’s round all the way as he hits Rocky underneath with some telling hooks to the belly.

ROUND TWO: Juarez is now double jabbing in an attempt to get closer to his circling foe who is now moving and fighting to his right.

Ayala round. (continue reading…)
