Saturday, March 27, 99 The Seven Feathers Hotel and Casino Canyonville, Oregon Promoter Patrick Ortiz of Ringside Ticket, Inc. presented a developmental show of youngish talent.
In the eight round main event, 26 year-old puncher Carlos "El Elegante" Bojorquez (154 lbs, now 10-1-3, 7 KO's), of Mira Loma, California won a unanimous decision over Vincent "The Bible" Moses, (154 lbs, now , 4-4-1)) a 20 year-old Nigerian fighting out of Las Vegas.
In Bojorquez' last appearance at Seven Feathers in October of 1998, he upset the previously undefeated Phoenix , AZ prospect Antonio Arras with a slamming first round stoppage.
An accidental head butt in the second round left Bojorquez with a small cut near the left eye. The cut seemed to fire him up and he took control, knocking Moses down toward the end of the second round. The slippery Moses survived and endured Bojorquez' heavy body attack with frequent clinches. Moses tried turning southpaw in the 6th but was staggered by a hard right and switched back immediately. This was Bojorquez' first eight rounder and both fighters were sucking air by the seventh. Moses was rocked again as the bell ended the eighth round. The judges saw it 80-70, 80-71, 80-73, all for Bojorquez.
Dangerous Mitio Dobrev Mitev (192 lbs, now 9-0, 9 KO) of Sofia, Bulgaria, fighting out of Phoenix, AZ , walked through a respectable jab to hammer the body of the taller, smoother moving Juan Carlos Maldonado (192 lbs, now 3-2, 3 KO) of Mexico fighting out of Las Vegas. The body work paid off fast, and Mitev followed up with awful rights to the head. Maldonado hit the deck twice in the second round and referee Jim Cassidy called a halt at 2:25 of the second round in a scheduled six.
In four round bouts: Ernesto Castaneda, (148 1/2 lbs, now 2-1) of Sacramento, California was half a pound over the contract weight and paid a piece of his purse to his last minute opponent, Fernando Yguado (145 lbs) to keep it. Castaneda caught Yguado with a massive left to the sleep button in the first round. Yguado landed face first and slid across the deck. KO win for Castaneda at :55 of the first.
Rugged Leon Rivera, (125 1/2 lbs, now 2-4, 2 KO's) of Portland, OR won a brief but intense winging war against Cesar Garcia, (124 1/2 lbs) of Dallas, OR who was making his debut. Garcia was taking the lead in points until a wowser left hand flattened him for the count at 1:55 of the first round.
Nobody walked out during the getaway bout in which Tony Martinez, (146 lbs, now 2-0) of Portland, OR won a busy and contentious but unanimous decision in four over Robert Acosta (147 lbs), making his debut, out of Los Angeles. Martinez, who debuted at 7 Feathers in October of last year, got a rousing welcome from a crowd that obviously remembered his previous warring win over Rogelio Chavez.
A scheduled four round 125 lb women's bout was scratched when one fighter failed to show. Having arrived in time, Jo Wyman (1-0, 1 KO) of Los Angeles participated in a three round exhibition with the bigger, more experienced Lisa Holewyne (5-3-1) of Waco, Texas. Holewyne had lost a split decision in a bloody brawl with Vicky Woods at the October show and was greeted warmly by the crowd.
