Kerman Lejarraga TKO4 Luis Solis...Fighting at junior middleweght, Kerman Lejarraga (28-1, 23 KOs) bounced back from his first defeat with a fourth-round stoppage of Mexican Luis Solis (25-10-4, 21 KOs) on Saturday night, June 8th, in front of a massive hometown crowd in Bilbao, Spain. Lejarraga will likely move back down to welterweight in his next fight and is eager to set up a highly anticipated rematch against David Avanesyan, who defeated him on March 30, for the European welterweight Title. Avanesyan was in the ring following Lejarraga's victory to congratulate him on Saturday night. "I'm happy about getting back on track after my first loss," said Lejarraga. "This is what boxing is all about. We have to get up and keep fighting."
Promoter Lou DiBella, "I'm proud of Kerman. He rebounded well with a knockout victory and showed that he is ready to resume his climb up the world rankings. He has what it takes to compete at the highest level of the sport and I'd love to bring 'The Revolver' to the United States to match him up against the top welterweights."
"Kerman was smart and cautious, learning from past mistakes," said co-promoter Txutxi Del Valle, of MGZ Promotions. "He looked ambitious like when he beat Bradley Skeete last year. This version of Kerman would have knocked out Avanesyan." source: dibella entertainment
