Peter Quillin Impresses with Stoppage over Dennis Sharpe
By German Villasenor (Feb 12, 2011) Doghouse Boxing
Middleweight Peter “Kid Chocolate” Quillin, 23-0 (17), battered and bloodied Dennis Sharpe, 17-6-3 (4), scoring a four-round stoppage on Friday night's Telefutura “Solo Boxeo Tecate” main event in Fairfield, California.

The Cuban-American Quillin showed very good hand speed, accuracy and a snappy jab against the much slower Sharpe for the first couple of rounds. Sharpe looked to cover up, as his head snapped back violently throughout the frame from Quillin’s shots.

Quillin drew blood from his foe's nose, landing jarring, long-range shots in the third.

A vicious three-punch combination in the fourth prompted referee Marcos Rosales to stop the beating at 1:54 into the round.

Sanchez Drops Grimaldo Twice, Wins Unanimous Decision

Fairfield (via Guadalajara) welterweight Alan “El Puas” Sanchez, 7-2-1 (2), sent a tough John Ryan Grimaldo, 6-1 (5), twice to the canvas in an eight-round bout en route to a decision win.

Sanchez enjoyed a height and reach advantage, punching from the outside and on the angles, while Grimaldo stalked but failed to trap or cut the distance from his opponent in the first couple of rounds.

Sanchez risked a bit more in the third, sticking his jab, getting some combinations in and quickly getting out once more. Grimaldo was too far out to be effective and a Sanchez left hook to the chin sent him to the floor midway into the round. Afterward, fallen Grimaldo barely managed to survive a furious, disorganized attack for the rest of the round before walking back to his corner, his face a bloody mess.

The fight went back on track as it did the first couple of rounds, with Sanchez stepping on the accelerator once more in the fifth, rattling Grimaldo in spots throughout the round.

Grimaldo saw his best rounds in the sixth and seventh, pressuring more, getting some left hooks in on the inside. However, Sanchez put up a late rally which bloodied up Grimaldo's nose once more.

Grimaldo kept trying ‘til the end, getting caught once more with a right and left, which sent him to the canvas once more. Sanchez tried hard to finish the show, doing everything he could to take the fight to the cards.

Scores were 80-70, 79-72 and 78-72.

Avila Stops Garcia in Final Round

In other results, Vacaville super bantamweight Manuel “Tino” Avila, 2-0 (1), showed good defense, counterpunching, speed and style in outhustling game southpaw Jose Garcia in a four-round banger.

Putting an exclamation mark to a near-flawless showing, Avila hurt his foe badly in the final seconds of the fight, trapping him against the ropes, then unleashed a savage attack. Referee Edward Collantes stopped the bout with only 32 seconds left in the bout.

With the loss, Garcia finds himself in search of his first win, seeing his record dip to 0-3.
