Valerio Dominates Cardona

Valerio Dominates Cardona

In the co-main event, Edgar “Kid Neza” Valerio (12-0, 7 KOs) dropped Martin Cardona (24-9, 16 KOs) a total of three times to win via second-round knockout in a scheduled eight-round featherweight fight. In the opening round, the native of Los Angeles, Calif. scored two knockdowns, the second of which was caused by a left uppercut that sent Cardona flying across the ring. Cardona, of Tucson, Arizona, managed to survive the first round, but only for Valerio to catch him with an overhand right to the temple that immediately ended matters at 21 seconds of the second round. “I felt good. I had an amazing training camp,” said Valerio. “I was being smart, and working smart pays off. I give all the glory to God, my family and my manager, Joel De La Hoya. What’s next for me? Only God knows.”

Gonzalez vs. Diaz was an eight-round super lightweight fight presented by Golden Boy Promotions and sponsored by “TECATE, THE OFFICIAL BEER OF BOXING” and Casa Mexico Tequila. The event was held at the Belasco Theater on Friday, October 6.
