Espinoza boxing has undefeated weekend

PRESS RELEASE: Luis Ramos, Carlos Molina, Abraham Lopez and Ronny Rios all posted wins this past weekend to stay undefeated

“Each one stepped up to the plate this past weekend and showed their mettle against tough and sometimes awkward fighters” said their manager Frank Espinoza. 

In the main event Thursday night in Irvine, California, Ramos moved to 9-0 with a six round unanimous decision over  Justo Vallecillo, 5-8.  Showing off his slick technical skills and body punching, Ramos stayed in control throughout the lightweight bout winning on all three judges scorecards, 60-53.  

Said Espinoza, “Luis can take a punch and that helped him out against Vallecillo, who tagged him a couple of times. In a young fighter that’s a very important asset as the fights get tougher which they will for Ramos.”

Also on Thursday, featherweight Abraham Lopez, 5-0, scored a second-round knockout of Alvaro Muro, 6-11 (2KO’s). Dropping Muro with a hard right body shot in the second, Lopez finished Muro off with right hook, left uppercut combo.

Rounding out the Espinoza Boxing Club night in Irvine , newcomer Ronny Rios, 2-0 (1KO), returned to the ring following his pro debut in October. The former amateur standout was taken the distance this time winning a hard-fought four round majority decision over Tuscon’s Carlos Luque, 0-2. 
On Friday night, at the Alameda Swap Meet, Carlos Molina improved to 6-0 (3KO’s) with a fourth round stoppage of Miami’s Genier Pit, 1-1-1 (1KO) in their scheduled four round lightweight bout. The bout was fought completely on the inside with both combatants trading somewhat equally in the first three rounds, with Molina’s power being the deciding factor. 

In the fourth, Molina’s power proved too much as Jack Reiss called a halt to the bout at the 2:17 mark of the round amidst a barrage of hard right hands to Pit’s head.

“Molina really showed what a tough fighter he is tonight. Pit took the fight right to him early but once Carlos settled down he was in control”, said Espinoza. “All four guys closed out the year strongly and it will be a very promising 2009 for each of them.”
