Super-Bantamweight Phenom Mario Barrios Marches Forward With Victory
SAN ANTONIO (February 11, 2015) – Last night San Antonio’s undefeated super bantamweight standout, Mario Barrios (2-0, 1 KO), marched forward with an impressive 4-round unanimous decision victory against Manuel Rubalcava (1-7) at the Cowboys Dance Hall, San Antonio, Texas. The 18-year old phenom, dropped his opponent twice before the bout ended.
“This was a good fight for me as I got the rounds needed to improve on my craft,” said Barrios. “After I put him down twice he started to move around the ring and the fight went the distance which is good because I know I’m not always going to knock out my opponent. Rubalcava showed a lot of heart while surviving and I’m happy I got the victory. I’m ready to get back in the ring.”
Barrios looks to return to the ring on March 7th at the Pala Casino Spa and Resort in Pala, California. Opponent to be announced.
