CHICAGO, IL, January 29, 2010 – The cold and snow showers outside the UIC Pavilion could not lower the temperature inside, as fans were treated to a truly exciting evening of fights.  With several luminaries on hand to witness the action, including former Lightweight Champion David Diaz, Alderwoman Dorothy Brown, Chicago Bears Defensive Lineman Alex Brown, and heavyweight David Latoria, whose scheduled bout was cancelled due to a pre-existing medical condition that prevented his opponent from entering the ring.  It was a bloody, brutal night of boxing, with all the fighters showing plenty of heart and skill, from 50-plus fight veterans to 1-fight boxers hoping to kick-start their careers.  There were boxers and brawlers, cerebral and visceral strategists, offensive aggressors and slick counterpunchers. While obviously the range of experience and styles meant that some bouts appealed to some tastes more than others, few could be disappointed by the overall quality of the evening’s battles.

The evening kicked off with an entertaining bout by two boxers who traveled some distance to make their mark in Chicago, as Kenny Galarza, 142 lbs., 11(11)-0-0, of Juan Diaz, Puerto Rico, set out to keep the ”0″ in his loss column against durable, battle-tested veteran Ilido Manuel Julio, 141 lbs., 39(35)-16(7)-1, of Cartegena, Columbia.

The game 38-year-old Ilido Julio did his best to keep the pressure on his younger, taller opponent, lunging in to land some stinging punches through the center of 24-year-old Kenny Galarza’s guard, but he was a bit flat-footed in the first round, and found himself struggling to stand in the wake of Galarza’s combinations.  Julio found himself down twice in the first round. The first time he appeared to lose his balance after an uppercut, which Galarza exploited by landing a hook as Julio fell to his knees. He was up quickly, but again fell after an uppercut later in the round—again appearing less hurt than off balance on impact.  Galarza picked his shots from the outside, coming over the top of Julio’s somewhat low guard with straight punches, and using effective hooks to the body and uppercuts whenever Julio pushed the action.
