Joe DeGuardia’s Star Boxing presented the second installment of their new series “BOXEO AZTECA”, televised over the Azteca America network this past Saturday night, and once again delivered the goods as the fans were treated to an exciting night of fights which included another major upset.
The main event saw undefeated Mariusz Wach (26-0 14 KO N. Bergen, NJ) successfully defend his WBC International Heavyweight title with a hard fought victory over last minute replacement Jason Gavern (21-9-4 10 KO Orlando, FL). Gavern, who replaced former world champion Oliver McCall earlier this week, promised the fans he would put on a show and test Wach and Gavern delivered on his promise. Wach knocked Gavern down in each of the first two rounds but Jason battled back in the third and fourth rounds often bringing the raucous crowd to their feet. Wach eventually regained control and stopped the grisled veteran at the 1:03 mark of round 6 of a scheduled 12 round bout. Wach is currently rated 8 by the WBC and Gavern was ranked 29th coming into the bout.
Veteran Jose Miguel Torres (23-5, 20 KOs) of Miami scored the big upset of the night, knocking out the previously-unbeaten Majewski of Atlantic City at the 1:16 mark of the sixth round to capture the North American Boxing Federation (NABF) and NABO titles. Majewski (17-1, 11 KOs) started off strong early but Torres fought back and bloodied Majewski’s nose in the third round. Torres put together a devastating combination which dropped Majewski heavily in the 6th round and the undefeated Majewski was counted out at the 1:13 mark. Majewski is the second favorite from Atlantic City to fall in consectutive shows on Azteca America, with Shamone Alvarez having been stopped by Doel Carrasquillo on Star Boxing’s opening event of Boxeo Azteca October 22nd.
