Read Time:2 Minute, 44 Second

Great night of boxing we witnessed yesterday in Monterrey, Mexico. The boxing evening was starred by Francisco ‘Chihuas’ Rodriguez and Arnulfo Salvador, where ‘Chihuas’ came out victorious with a very good knockout in round 7. The other fights on the card were up to the occasion, with Jade Bornea’s victory over Mohammed Obbadi also standing out.

Chihuas Rodriguez vs Arnulfo Salvador

The fight between these two boxers took place in the bantamweight division, where Chihuas Rodriguez was fighting for the second time, and Arnulfo Salvador for the first. Chihuas normally fights in the super flyweight category, where he is ranked #4 by the IBF and #10 by the WBO, while Salvador normally moves between 112 and 115 lbs, being outside the top ranks.

It is possible to say that the fight was one-sided in favor of Chihuas Rodriguez, because from the beginning he took over the initiative and the best actions, progressively wearing Salvador down.

Chihuas’ body-head combinations were very efficient, as was his speed in throwing straight punches. Overall, he demonstrated many more boxing tools, including confidence inside the ring, which led him to finish Salvador in round 7 by referee’s decision.

Chihuas Rodriguez gets a victory that helps him climb up the bantamweight rankings, however, despite having faced a good fighter like Arnulfo ‘Pacman’ Salvador, it is not a fight that means much, considering the difference in level between the two, which was expected before the fight.
