Garcia, Aguilar Defeats Visiting Foes on Friday Night
By German Villasenor (Jan 23, 2011) Doghouse Boxing
Telemundo kicked off their first show of 2011 with a pair of interesting fights on Friday night emanating from the Salon Polanco in Mexico City, Mexico.

Garcia Defeats Urina in 12

In his first outing outside of his native Colombia, super flyweight KO artist, southpaw William Urina 17-1 (14), tasted the canvas but returned the favor against Mexico's Johnny Garcia 10-2-1 (5) before losing his “0” en route to a unanimous 12-round decision.

Although Urina enjoyed the height and reach advantage, it was Garcia who fought tall, being the aggressor, leading with swooping right hands and making things very uncomfortable for Urina.

Urina went to work in the second, punching out of a peek-a-boo stance, letting his hands go and trading in spots with his opponent.

Trading from the onset in the second frame, Garcia nailed his opponent with a wild left upstairs, momentarily wobbling him, with the Colombian returning in kind seconds later with a shot of his own to the head.

In the fourth, a left hook to the body and an uppercut to the chin sent the Colombian crashing down to the ground late in the round. Barely able to get up, Urina was saved by the bell.

Garcia worked body shots in the fifth, with the game Colombian bomber working his way back into the fight behind pesky jabs and short left hands.

Garcia went down on an accidental headbutt in the sixth (one of two) with Urina suffering a cut high atop his forehead. The ringside doctor took a close look at the cut and let the battle continue.

Urina hurt Garcia early in the seventh, backing him up, with the Mexican looking the worse for wear. The tide then turned late in the round, with Garcia seriously hurting his foe with another uppercut and body shots, which had Urina in deep trouble for the remaining seconds of the round.

Urina took the following round on the strength of his jab, as the Mexican looked tired, mouth gaping open.

Both fighters remained on the attack for the next couple of rounds, getting a break once more for the ringside doctor to again take a look at the bloody cut which re-opened on Urina’s forehead in the 11th round.

Urina, behind in the fight, once more got back into the action, nailing an incoming Garcia with a hard right at the onset of the final round. The Mexican came back to tee off on the bloody cut, moving to his left while throwing wide shots, while the Colombian tried desperately to save his undefeated status until the bell.

Scores were 116-110, 117-109 and 116-109, all for Garcia who added the WBO Latino title to his Fecarbox title.

Aguilar Upsets Gonzalez in Eight-rounder

In the co-featured bout, Nicaraguan bantamweight William “Chirizo” Gonzalez dropped Angel Michael Aguilar in the first round, going on to take the next three. Aguilar would hang on, slowly outworking the Nicaraguan behind the southpaw stance, beating him to the punch with his jab and straight lead rights.

Both fighters traded on even terms in the eighth and final round en route to scorings of 76-75 for Gonzalez and 76-75, twice for Aguilar, resulting in a split decision.
