Mexican Cristian “Chicharito” GonzÃ¡lez defeated Venezuelan Kenny Geovanny “El Maestrico” Cano by KO in the second round, retaining the WBC Fecarbox Central America Federation Flyweight title, last night in the EstrellaTV Boxeo EstrellaTV monthly boxing series. The series takes place on the last Friday of each month and is broadcast live from the Foro Centenario in Mexico City.
Changes to GonzÃ¡lez’s training by manager Daniel Valle helped produce some great results for the fighter, who went looking for a fight early on. GonzÃ¡lez’s first shots went to the body, forcing Cano to walk backwards, and he tried to respond with long-range blows.
In the second round, GonzÃ¡lez delivered a series of punches and a powerful blow to the body followed by a hook to the head, which sent Cano to the canvas and referee Uruzquieta stopped the fight at 1:52.
