Antonio Avelar vs Wilfredo Vasquez Quick rewatch for my thread; will watch Oba-Gonzalez for Philly's tomorrow. Great action straight off the bat, with Avelar looking for his bombs as soon as he got in range. Vasquez using his left, pawing with it and then snapping lefts over Avelar's disjointed lead rights. I like how Vasquez is stepping in and rolling with Avelar's wide punches. Reminds me of Curry-Jones. Vasquez comes out pressuring in the second and landing his left hook with alarming regularity. He clearly gets the better of the incredible action for most of the round before Avelar snaps out of whatever trance he was in and decides that's he's not being bulled around by the smaller, weaker, lighter punching fighter. Oh no, he goes right back to it in the third. Vasquez really weaves his counters through Avelar's offense, beautifully. His round, again IMO. Close, though. I liked how Avelar imposed himself in the forth. Nothing much to it, he just landed better, in my eyes. I've watched this fifth round that I can score it without watching. Vasquez's knockdown was harder and he got the better for most of the action IMO. It's truly an incredibly round, though. 10-9, Vasquez. Much more aggressive from Avelar, and I liked it; thought it won him the round. I liked his short, left uppercuts when Vasquez dipped to get at his body. I always like it when the gritty caveman-types do something right, I feel like a proud mum. Vasquez took the seventh, on mine based on his more accurate punches. Another seesaw-type round, though. Basically all of them have been. A brutal cross-counter lands on Vasquez and puts him straight out and the ref waves it of. Brutal punch, good stoppage. Avelar - Vasquez 9 : 10 9 : 10 9 : 10 10 : 9 (37/39) 9 : 10 10 : 9 9 : 10 (65/68) Avelar TKO8 The size difference between these two was pretty surprising. If I didn't know any better, there'd be no-way I'd have guessed Vasquez was the fighter who peak 10lbs above Avelar and would eventually win titles at featherweight, while the other was predominantly a flyweight. Avelar looked way bigger in there, I think.
