Default Re: Hector Carrasquilla

Despite the 'shocking loss' to Soo-Hawn Hong,,,,,

Hector Carrasquilla was back in the Gimnasio Nuevo Arena 4-months later,
{still under age 18}.

In March, at (127 lbs.) - Hector stopped (TKO 5) Costa Rican Featherweight, 'Hurricane' Raul Silva
29-5-0 (10 KO's).

It was another 'awesome' display of power, as Carrasquilla floored Silva 'once' in
the 1st-Round, 'twice' in the 2nd-Round, once in the 4th-Round, and 'twice' in the
5th-round, as Referee Vivian Stewart stopped the contest at 2:01 of the Round.

Hector Carrasquilla, moves to 12-1-0 (12 KO's), and will now campaign as a 126 lb. Featherweight.

Carrasquilla's agent, Rodolfo Siaro states, that the weight draining to get to 122 lbs. was too much
for his growing fighter. He only had 'minimal endurance' for his bout with Soo-Hwan Hong 4-months
earlier. That is why he went for the 'fast knockout', as he was ordered to do so by his cornermen.

At 126 lbs. he is more comfortable, but soon will even move up to 130 lbs. (Super-Featherweight).
