VARGAS STOPS ESTRADA WITH ONE PUNCH IN SECOND ROUND
8 July 2011
Buffalo Bill's Star Arena, Primm, Nevada, United States
Unbeaten Jesse Vargas, 22 years-old prospect from Las Vegas, scored an impressive win when stopped veteran Walter Estrada, 35 years-old southpaw from Colombia, with a second round KO. A single left hook put Estrada down and out 38 seconds into the second round of a scheduled 10-round super-lightweight fight.
Vargas, 16-0-0 (9 KOs), appeared to be in a competitive fight early in the second round, when the fighters traded some hellacious punches. Estrada, 39-15-1 (25 KOs), landed several vicious body shots during the exchange.
However, the end came quickly. Vargas knocked Estrada off balance with a grazing right that appeared to land on his left shoulder. When he regained his footing, he left himself wide open and Vargas found his chin with a perfect shot.
Estrada fell unconscious to the canvas and lay on his back for several minutes before he was helped to his feet. He seemed to be OK when the official time was announced.
Vargas was coming off a first-round knockout of faded Vivian Harris in April.
On the undercard, in a clash of unbeaten superwelterweights Alfonso Blanco, 6-0-0 (2 KOs), outpointed Cleveland Ishe, 3-1-0 (1 KO), over six one-sided rounds. Scores were 60-54, 60-54 and 59-55.
