As part of BoxeoEstrellaTV’s monthly fight nights, Colombian Miguel “Scorpión” Marriaga became the new Continental Latin American Silver WBC champion in the Featherweight Division by beating Mexican Jorge “Chícharo” García at 2:36 in the sixth round, in what was the stellar fight of the billboard. The two-hour fight card was broadcast live on Friday, April 30 from the Fit Center in Mexico City on EstrellaTV.
“Chícharo” García, who got turned out, was an initial problem for the Colombian Marriaga who had to work overtime to get the win, because the opponent got into the short ground and that made it difficult for the South American to use his famous hook, while Jorge responded with right-handed blown ups that hit the Colombian’s face.
Passing the second turn, Marriaga managed to settle down and began working mid- and long-distance blows, entering again and again in the face of the Mexican who kept going to the front, causing the exchange of blows on the short ground, and trying to put uppercuts and finishing with hooks.
As the fight progressed, the dominance began to be reflected in Garcia’s face, which when he tried to throw a straight punch and failed, who was left at the mercy of Miguel who punished him with a right-hand crusader that hit the nose of the “Chicharo” which made him bleed significantly.
Entering the fifth round, Miguel was left with nothing to culminate the fight by the knockout route, however, the bell avoided it, while in the sixth round, a Marriaga hook to Garcia’s face put him in bad condition, and from there, the Colombian was thrown on board ending the fight with a shower of blows, causing the intervention of the third party on the surface.
As a semi-final match, Diego “Maravilla” Carmona of the CDMX took the victory by technical knockout within 36 seconds of the second round over Carlos Francisco “Chisco” Zavala of Guadalajara, a superwelter match at 8 rounds.
