Julio Diaz Defeats Herman Ngoudjo
PRIMM, NEVADA-Thompson Boxing Promotions’ Julio Diaz and Dominic Salcido both lit up the desert sky with solid ring performances on ESPN2 Friday Night Fights at Buffalo Bills Resort and Casino tonight.
As the main event of the night, former lightweight world champion Julio Diaz improved his record to (37-6, 26 KOs) when he overcame former world title challenger Herman Ngoudjo (18-4, 10 KOs) by attacking the body consistently enough to throw Ngoudjo off of his game plan.
While Ngoudio adjusted well, Diaz was still able to overcome by staying on the inside and as gained the decision.
“Ngoudio could take a punch, his style was very difficult for me to adjust to because of his elbows, he comes forward with his head. But I was able to change things up and fight on the inside, it’s what my corner knew would work and we did just that..”
Dominic Salcido improved to (18-2, 9 KOs) by overcoming New York’s undefeated southpaw Guillermo Sanchez (11-1-1, 5 KOs), Salcido defeated his heavy-handed opponent with swift attacks to the Puerto Rican’s chin, which afforded him the win by unanimous decision.
“I came and proved what I need to, I am back in the game and back to business” said Salcido.
