Partnered with Camponovo Sports Inc., the event was a feast for the eyes and was broadcast live on FOX Deportes in Spanish.

The Featherweight Showdown: Hermosillo vs. De Luna

Let’s jump straight into the main event: an 8-round featherweight nail-biter featuring Rigoberto Hermosillo from Victorville, CA, and Alexis De Luna hailing from Bakersfield, CA. It was a clash of titans, no doubt, with both fighters trading blows like there’s no tomorrow.

Round-by-Round Analysis

  • Initial Rounds: Both were cautious, sizing each other up
  • Middle Rounds: The heat turned up, fists flew. Hermosillo maximized his height, while De Luna landed power shots.

In the end, it was Hermosillo who clinched the win with a majority decision. The scorecards read 76-76, and 77-75 twice in favor of Hermosillo.

The fight was very close, so my corner told me I had to win the final rounds. I had to dig deep and I’m happy I got the win.
