A phenom. Not all that durable though IMO.
Would love to see that Flea!

They had it all worked out for Hector -

An early 1978 WBA defense versus the Central American Super-Bantamweight Champion,
the 'light punching' Columbian, Nestor 'Baba' Jiminez.

Then the former WBA Bantamweight Champion Alfonso Zamora in the Spring of 1978.

Then, at age 18, the move up to 126 lbs.

The kid did have talent.
Very interesting. Did not know this about Carrasquilla. Very young.

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).

Super Flea man,

Excellent video find.

Following the 17 1/2 year-old - Hector Carrasquilla's loss (L KO 3) to Soo-Hwan Hong

* 11/26/77....(L KO 3).......Soo-Hwan Hong - 39-4-3 (13 KO's)......#1 WBA Super-Bantamweight

* 3/4/78.......(KO 5)......... Raul Silva - 29-5-0 (10 KO's)...............#8 WBA Featherweight
* 4/15/78.....(NC 6)......... Pedro Nino Jiminez - 42-5-2 (20 KO's)....#10 WBA Featherweight
* 5/20/78.....(KO 3)......... Claude Durden - 12-10-1 (7 KO's)..........Unranked Super-Featherweight
* 7/2/78.......(L Dec 10)... Reynaldo Hidalgo - 21-4-1 (17 KO's).......#9 WBA Super-Featherweight
* 8/19/78.....(W Dec 10).. Bok-Soo Hwang - 29-4-0 (9 KO's)..........#16 WBA Featherweight
* 11/18/78....(KO 2)........ Julio Pinilla - 15-3-0 (13 KO's)................#4 WBA Featherweight

No rest for the 'young', as Hector Carrasquilla was kept busy with '6' bouts in 8-months.
Going 4-1-0 (3 KO's) with '1' No Contest.

April 7, 1979 - Hector challenges WBA Featherweight Champion, and Panamanian countryman Eusebio Pedroza.

On April 7, 1979, Hector Carrasquilla 15-2-0 (14 KO's) was still not age 19, as he was
4-weeks shy of that age.

High quality exchanges in the beginning of the fight.


But we all know Sanchez would've destroyed Pedroza!

November 18, 1978

WBA Featherweight Elimination bout, between 'two' Panamanian Bombers.

Hector Carrasquilla - 14-2-0 (13 KO's)...#2 WBA Featherweight
vs.
Julio 'Superman' Pinilla - 15-3-0 (13 KO's)...#4 WBA Featherweight

Julio Pinilla had won '14' straight bouts with (12 KO's), including a 'shocking'
1st-Round Knockout over #7 WBA Featherweight - Rodolfo Francis in April 1978.

'Bombs Away', as Hector floors Julio Pinilla in the 1st Round, and then puts 'Superman'
away by 'knockout' in the next round by (KO 2).

Ford is seen as the more impressive performance and rightly so. This is the better fight for sure

And no, Sanchez didn't 'destroy' Cowdell, Ford, Laporte, Castillo did he?

Sanchez was terrified at what he can do to an opponent if he fights like he did against Lopez/Gomez.

So he obviously took it easy on these harmless weaklings.

It's a well-known fact.


Sanchez puts Pedroza in a coma by mercilessly beating him over 15 rounds,
then revives him,
gives him a rematch and Zamoras him in 2 round,
revives him once again,
gives him one last rematch and Fords his balls in 1 round.

Carrasquilla was a poor man's Kalule- in the Rodrigo Valdez mold- technically.But with actual punching power.

Could have had a fine career had he not been so rushed though.The lad had offensive skills far beyond his years.

Hector Carrasquilla was 'fast and powerful'.

Nobody that young had that kind of 'one-punch' power.

But the ability to take it, he was average at best.

The main problem, he always started off in 4th Gear.
