02/19/2024 - No comments

Andres Cortes, the bloke who’s been knocking ’em out left and right, put on a right show at The Theater at Madison Square Garden last Friday. He stopped Bryan Chevalier dead in his tracks, halting his 12-fight tear with a bit of razzle-dazzle in the fourth round, leading to a towel chucking from Chevalier’s lot.

From the get-go, Cortes was all over Chevalier like a rash, throwing punches like they were going out of fashion and setting a pace that Chevalier couldn’t hope to match. By the time round three was done, it was clear Chevalier was flagging, and not just a bit.

Come the fourth round, Cortes wasn’t letting up; he was on him like a whirlwind, leading to Chevalier’s team calling it quits to save their man from more punishment. This win wasn’t just another notch on the belt for Cortes; he nicked the WBO Inter-Continental Super Featherweight title and hung onto his WBC USA Silver title, making a right statement in the super featherweight rumble.

Next on Cortes’ hit list are the big dogs, O’Shaquie Foster and Emanuel Navarrete. “I’m ready to mix it with the best,” Cortes boasted. “Foster, Navarrete, keep your eyes peeled. I’m not resting till I’ve got those belts.”

His triumph got the spotlight on ESPN, letting the whole country see him in action.
