Santillan, 146.2 lbs of San Diego, California is now 25-0 with 15 knockouts. Buelvas, 147 lbs of Colombia is 20-13. "In the first round I was trying to get my timing right," Santillan said. "Thirty seconds into the second round, I knew I had him so I pressed him. After the second knockdown I knew he wasn't going to get up. I'm punching a lot harder at this weight. I felt my punches were a little too wide in that first round so I tried to tighten them up. I felt a lot more comfortable in the second and I was able to time Buelvas and anticipate which way he would be leaning. I saw the opening and I took it." Santillan is promoted by Thompson Boxing. source for all results: split-t management
