Gabriel Maestre TKO2 Jeovanis Barraza... Five minutes and 16 seconds was enough time for Venezuela junior middleweight Gabriel Maestre who stopped Colombia's Jeovanis Barraza (20-1) at the Coliseo Baby Sugar Rojas in Barranquilla, Colombia. Maestre is a 32 year-old two-time Olympian. Maestre is listed as 1-0, but that is dishonest promotion as he previously competed as a pro in the World Series of Boxing. According to the WBA, Maestre intends to campaign in both pro and amateur competition going forward, with the Pan-Am Games next on his agenda. Maestre floored Barraza twice and continued to punish him until the fight was stopped.
Dervis Colina TKO1 Ernesto Spain... The same show featured a battle between two undefeated Venezuelan super middleweights. Dervis Colina (11-0, 8 KOs) prevailed, defeating Ernesto Spain (13-1, 12 KOs) via technical knockout in the first round. A straight right from Colina surprised his opponent, who went to the canvas. Although Spain rose to continue fighting, he was very dizzy and was easy prey for Colina, who hit him several times on the ropes until the referee had to stop the fight at 2:39 of the first round. source for both results: wba
