Carcamo and Petrov advance to Boxcino finals with impressive victories
New Town, North Dakota (March 31, 2014)–Fernando Carcamo and Petr Petrov punched their tickets to the Boxcino lightweight finals with impressive wins over Miguel Gonzalez and Chris Rudd respectively this past Friday night at the 4 Bears Casino & Lodge.
The bouts were televised LIVE on ESPN.
Carcamo outlasted Gonzalez via 8-round majority decision in a thrilling bout that saw many ebbs and flows. The contest almost ended seconds into the bout when Carcamo landed a huge left on the ropes that made the body of Gonzalez go limp and defenseless on the ropes and was ruled a knockdown. Gonzalez did well to fight back and fought inside while trying to work the body. Carcamo hit the body well and landed some solid shots from distance with both hands. Gonzalez landed some decent power punches. The two battled down the stretch but it was the knockdown and the body attack for Carcamo that proved to be difference as Carcamo won by scores of 78-74, 77-75 and 76-76.
Carcamo of Sonora, Mexico is now 17-5. Gonzalez of Cleveland, Ohio is 23-4.
“I thought the fight was stopped in the 1st round,”said Carcamo. “The ref told me to stop punching. I thought I did a very good job and I am looking forward to the final.”
Said Gonzalez, “It was a hell of a fight. Carcamo is a strong fighter but I was out-boxing him. He is slow. I got caught with a punch in the 1st round but I continued to fight like a champion.”
Petrov scored a 4th round stoppage over Rudd
Petrov started out landing body and head shots in the 1st round. Petrov hurt Rudd for the 1st time as he landed a few body shots on the ropes and landed a hard right as the two migrated towards the center of the ring. Rudd tried to sit down and slug with Petrov but the Russian landed the harder blows. Petrov started round four by landing a big right hand that sent Rudd to the ropes. Petrov jumped on Rudd and landed a barrage of punches inside the wide attempts of Rudd and after taking too many head shots the fight was stopped 51 seconds into round four by referee Billy Johnson.
Petrov is now 34-4-2 with 16 knockouts while Rudd of Covington, Tennessee is now 13-2.
“I am very happy,”said Petrov. “I did what I had to do. I worked the body and broke him down. We are very happy to going to New York for the finals,” finished Petrov.
Said Rudd, “I fought hard. The head shots hurt me. I will work on getting better. I will be back.”
Carcamo and Petrov will meet in the finals on May 23 at the Turning Stone Resort in Verona, New York.
The Boxcino middleweight semifinals will take place on Friday, April 18th at the Turning Stone Resort in Verona, New York as Brandon Adams will take on Raymond Gatica and Vitalii Kopylenko will take on Willie Monroe Jr.
