7. Ivan Calderon vs Hugo Fidel Cazares I
Cazares landed nothing cleanly in the first two rounds, while Calderon outboxed him from the outside, constantly moving around the ring. In round 3, Cazares became aggressive enough to probably take the round, but Calderon got back into his groove for rounds 4-6. However, in round 7, Cazares become even more aggressive, and in round 8, this aggression paid off, as Calderon was knocked down, and badly hurt for the entire round. Cazares’s power and aggression also won him the 9th, and most likely the 10th round. Although, in the 10th, Calderon began to resume applying his boxing ability to counteract Cazares’ aggression. Cazares began to tire slightly in rounds 11 and 12, while giving way to Calderon’s superior technical skills.
When Calderon became stationary, Cazares was able to hurt Calderon with power punches. However, when Calderon was moving, Cazares’s attempts at power punching were met with nothing but air as his wild attempts seemed amateurish when countered by Calderon’s defensive ability. In the end, Calderon’s superior movement and technical skills won him the bout.
