Said Frank Espinoza, President of the Espinoza Boxing Club, “It was a terrific night. Luis and Carlos both had terrific performances on TV. I’m looking to get them both back in the ring in September..”
In the televised scheduled six rounder, southpaw lightweight prospect Luis Ramos moved to 6-0 (4KO’s) with a stoppage of Mexico’s Aaron Dominguez. Only 19 years old, Ramos, from Santa Ana, California, showed skills of a much more experienced fighter as he worked behind a terrific jab the entire fight, scoring at will with solid counter punching of the forward charging Dominguez.
Ramos dropped Dominguez twice late in the fifth round and scored the victory when Dominguez, 7-2-1 (5KO’s) did not come out for the final round.
Molina, in a scheduled four rounder, showed a granite chin which he combined with short powerful inside punches to stop Ramon Flores. With Flores throwing punches from unorthodox angles, Molina followed him around the ring successfully counterpunching throughout the first two rounds.
Towards the end of the second round after eating a Flores uppercut, Molina countered with a terrific left hook that combined with an overhand right to stop Flores at 2:47 of the round.
With the win, the 22 year old Molina of Commerce, California scored his first professional knockout and moved to 4-0 (1KO) while Flores fell to 2-2-1 (2KO’s).
Also fighting out of the Espinoza Boxing Club, Manny “SUAVECITO Roman improved to 13-0-1 (5KO’s) with a workmanlike eight round decision win over Juan Javier Lagos in a bout that was not televised. Scores were 80-72 on all three scorecards for the 20 year old from Paramount, California.
