Escobedo scores 1st round KO on Solo Boxeo


This past weekend, California fight fans were treated to an explosive night of boxing at The Woodland Community Center in Woodland. The five-fight card was presented by Golden Boy Promotions, Don Chargin Productions and Paco Presents. If you missed the live action or the TeleFutura “Sólo Boxeo Tecate” broadcast, below is a summary of the results:

Winner Loser Method Round
Vicente Escobedo Lonnie Smith KO 1
Manuel Avila David Reyes Unanimous decision 6
Dimitry Chudinov Paul Mendez Majority draw 6
Jonathan Chicas Ephraim Martinez Majority decision 4
Harry Gopaul Payton Boyea KO 2

Obviously, the big name on the card was former US Olympian Vicente Escobedo. Escobedo took care of his overmatched opponent with ease, scoring a big 1st round KO. The other two notable fighters on the card were undefeated prospects Manuel Avila and Dimitriy Chudinov. Avila scored a clear UD win, but Chudinov escaped with just a Majority Draw against his opponent.
