"I'm happy with my performance. Vasquez if a fighter with a lot of experience so I wanted to come out aggressive and it paid off. I feel great. I'm ready for the next step up. It's time to get back in the gym." ~ Carlos Ivan Velasquez
Twin brother Juan Carlos's winning streak stays alive as he moves to (9-0, 5 KO's) scoring a 2nd round TKO over Edison Morillo. In the first round, a timid Morillo ran around the ring as Juan stalked him while trying to land punches. Morillo pulled Juan down to the canvas early in the second and quit giving Velasquez the TKO.
"I wanted to showcase my skills tonight, but my opponent didn't come to fight. I'm hoping to get a tougher challenge next time out. I got the win and that's what matters." ~ Juan Carlos Velasquez
