Last Saturday, Infinite Reality Studios in Long Beach, California, played host to a groundbreaking boxing event organized by CBN Promotions in collaboration with Camponovo Sports Inc. The event, labeled “New Blood,” was broadcasted live in Spanish on FOX Deportes and will be available later on Estrella TV. Additionally, the full card was available for streaming in English on the FightStars Network website, where replays can still be viewed.
In the crucial 8-round featherweight headline fight, Rigoberto Hermosillo of Victorville, California, narrowly beat Alexis De Luna of Bakersfield, California. It was a closely contested fight that saw both boxers bringing their best to the ring. The intensity increased through the middle rounds with rapid combinations from both sides. Using his taller frame to his advantage, Hermosillo managed to secure some rounds, while De Luna delivered powerful shots of his own. The fight could have gone either way but Hermosillo’s crucial headshots in the final rounds gave him the edge. The judges’ cards read 76-76, and two 77-75 scores favoring Hermosillo.
“I was well-prepared and it was evident in how I performed,” commented Hermosillo. “The fight was so close that my corner advised me to secure the last rounds. De Luna was a challenging adversary, and I credit my team for preparing me well. This win, I hope, paves the way for more significant fights in my career.”
In the co-main event, an 8-round super lightweight fight, Emiliano Moreno from Long Beach, California, defeated Levy Garcia Benitez from Jalisco, Mexico. Both boxers demonstrated great heart and fought intensely. Moreno’s better reach and accurate punches helped him secure a unanimous decision. The scorecards read 79-73 twice and 78-74, all in favor of Moreno.
“It was surreal winning in my hometown and on FOX Deportes, where my Mexican fans could see me,” Moreno said. “These challenging fights will elevate my career. Benitez was a worthy opponent, and I’m eager for my next contest later this year.”
The second televised fight featured Tayden Beltran of Huntington Beach, California, besting Francisco Duque of Baytown, Texas. Both demonstrated remarkable tenacity, but it was Beltran who landed the more effective blows to win a unanimous decision in the 6-round lightweight fight.
The event began with Juan Sanchez of South El Monte, California, defeating Roberto Patron of Turlock, California, in a welterweight fight. Sanchez landed two strong left hooks, which resulted in Patron being knocked out.
Nelson Oliva of Los Angeles, California, took little time to defeat Selim Martinez from Matamoros, Mexico, in a middleweight fight, scoring a first-round knockout. In another 6-round super bantamweight contest, Deiniel Santiago Alegre of Phoenix, Arizona, triumphed over Sean Brewer of Las Vegas, Nevada. Alegre aggressively dominated the fight, scoring a unanimous decision. Kevin Salgado of Murrieta, California, closed out the evening by knocking out Osvaldo Negrete of Matamoros, Mexico, in a super lightweight fight during the second round.
