The Prince – Pagara
I believe that with the right training, conditioning and discipline this guy is the next deal! Pagara has been tested in this fight and i know that he has a lot to work on to be the the next dominant champion .
Round 1 – Both fighters were trying to test the waters first and trying to feel each other first, Pagara fought wisely as Gonzalez tried to engage early, It was a bit lack luster in round 1, Pagara 10-9.
Round 2 – Pagara showed the eagerness to win the fight early, he smiled at times as well, bought fighters trying to exchange blows but at within 2 minutes left Pagara connected a beautiful left counter punch to the jaw but Gonzalez kept pressing forward and tried to taunt Pagara to bring it on, Pagara was calm enough to just keep boxing and even with the ref threatening Pagara at times to fight clean (although I don’t think he was hitting way below), Pagara delivered a knockdown within 20 seconds remaining in round 2, however it was waived because Pagara delivered a punch with Gonzalez down on his knees, The referee stepped in and warned to disqualify Pagara if he would do that again. The knockdown has been waived because of the illegal punch. Pagara 10-9 could have been a 1-8 easily.
Round 3 – Gonzalez started the round as if he was looking for a knockout pressing Pagara at times but that didnt really matter at all as Pagara counter punched his way into round 4. Pagara 10-9
Round 4: Gonzalez kept pressing forward and got Pagara on the ropes a number of times but often his punches didnt really bother Pagara, Pagara showed that he can take a punch at the same time box wisely, I am really impressed how he handled the pressure that is given to him by Gonzalez, Pagara still dictated the fight and delivered the more telling blows. Pagara 10-9.
Round 5: The situation didn’t really change but at this point the punches thrown by Gonzalez is telegraph well by Pagara. In the last 2 mins of the fight Pagara connected a 1-2 combination that staggered Gonzalez but Pagara was being cautious knowing that his opponent is a power puncher. Pagara won the round 10-9
Round 6: Gonzalez really wanted to KO Pagara and delivered a series of combination trying to head hunt Pagara. Pagara was cornered on the ropes as Gonzalez tried to unleash punches but Pagara was able to get out of it by pushing Gonzalez away and within the last min Pagara connected a 1-2 combination that floored Gonzalez to the ground and didnt get up as the referee counted him out.
With the win Pagara improved to 25 wins 18 KO’s no defeats.
