Enfusion Talents #59 took place today in Madrid, Spain.
Here are results from the action.
-70 kg: Jose Manuel Hita (ESP) def. Nacho Menedez (ESP)-Unanimous Decision
Hita won the decison over Menedez in a hard-fought battle, although the decision was unpopular with some in the crowd, who booed the announcement. Menedez was the aggressor, as Hita looked to counter his shorter opponent. Hita seemed to get the better of the action in round one, while it appeared Menedez gained the advantage later in the fight. Menedez was the fresher fighter down the stretch. Hita improves to 33-1-4. Menedez is now 32-2-8.
Alex Pintor (ESP) def. Jose Bello (ESP)-Unanimous Decision
Entertaining and hard-fought bout between two talented Spanish fighters. Bello mixed his punches and kicks nicely, and was the busier fighter. Pintor was the harder hitter. Pintor showed a strong left hook, looking to counter Bello combinations. It seemed Bello earned the decision because he threw and landed more, but the judges favored Pinto in the scoring. Pinto improves to 19-0(5). Bello is now 26-1-4(10).
-60 kg: Silviu Vitez (ROU) def. Cristian Rodriguez Rojo (ESP)-TKO 1 (Muay Thai)
Vitez was too much for Rojo. The “Romanian Hitman” showed quick and strong hands and nasty elbows in dominating the Spanish fighter. A Vitez elbow led to an eight count for Rojo, who complained the blow landed in the back of the head. Vitez continued his attack, mixing punches and elbows nicely in a flurry that led to a second eight count. Rojo tried to battle back, but Vitez landed a nice left hook that hurt Rojo again before finishing him off with a left body kick that dropped him. The bout was waved off due to three counts in a round. Vitez improves to 23-1-2(14). Rojo is now 29-5-7.
-75 kg: Kevin Bosah (NGA) def. Ruben Gonzalez (ESP)-TKO 3
Bosah scored a one punch stoppage, landing a big left hook set up by a jumping knee, that dropped late substitute Gonzalez. The bout was untidy at times and tempers flared, with Gonzalez complaining to the referee about Bosah holding the leg after catching kicks. The official docked Bosah a point for the infraction in round three. Bosah improves to 4-1-2. Gonzalez is 11-5-6.
-67 kg: Nacho Campos (ESP) def. Mario Negrete (ESP)-Decision
Campos, a southpaw, scored effectively with his hands and inside low kicks to get the victory over Negrete in an all-Spanish match up. A Campos left hand stunned Negrete near the end of round one. Campos is now 20-1(5). Negrete is 11-2-3(4).
-63 kg: Fara Sylva (ESP) def. Volodymyr Sushkov (UKR)-Majority Decision
Sylva got a majority decision over Sushkov in a fight that was slow at times. Sylva landed a couple of good right hands in round two, with one near the end of the round appearing to stun Sushkov. Sylva is now 5-1. Sushkov is 20-1-7.
-54 kg: Elena Goggin (IRL) def. Sheila Garcia (ESP)-Unanimous Decision
The scrappy Goggin got the better of young Spaniard Garcia in the opener. The Irish fighter landed some solid knees to the body on the inside, and outworked her opponent to get the victory. In the third, Garcia was given an eight count after receiving some knees. Goggin improves to 19-3-5. Garcia is now 28-4-8.
