Zaina Outclasses Lopez, Valle Triumphs in Gritty Bout 

Tarik Zaina (13-0-1, 8 KOs) made it look easy against Marcelino Nicolas Lopez (37-4-1, 22 KOs) in the co-feature of the night. Zaina, displaying superb boxing skills, cruised to a unanimous decision win with the judges scoring it 97-93, 98-92, and 99-91.

Zaina’s opening round was a showcase of sharp lateral movement, while Lopez tried to establish dominance with his left jab and an overhand right. However, Lopez’s overhand right mostly missed its mark throughout the first half. As the fight progressed, Lopez’s strategy of chasing Zaina backfired, with Zaina countering effectively, particularly with his left jab.

In a strategic move, Zaina switched to a southpaw stance in the seventh round, a change Lopez struggled to adapt to. Zaina then took control, using his right jab to dictate the pace and ultimately sealing the deal for a unanimous decision victory.

Undefeated super welterweight Marques Valle (10-0, 7 KOs) faced a tough challenge against Farid Ngoga (10-1, 6 KOs) but emerged victorious with scores of 77-75, 78-74, and 78-74. Valle’s win was hard-earned, as he had to withstand Ngoga’s aggressive style throughout the fight.

Ngoga set the early pace with a solid left jab, while Valle was more measured, stalking but not landing many punches initially. Valle found his rhythm in the second round, connecting with a left jab followed by a right uppercut. Ngoga, showing signs of fatigue, was hit with some heavy shots but managed to create swelling on Valle’s face with some well-placed combinations.

The third round saw Ngoga landing overhand rights, but Valle, undeterred, applied relentless pressure and stunned Ngoga with a triple right uppercut. Despite Ngoga switching to a southpaw stance in the fifth round and landing a series of right jabs, Valle continued his aggressive approach.

Both fighters ended the fight strong, but it was Valle’s cleaner strikes that swayed the judges in his favor.

Kicking off the night with a bang, ProBox Promotions showcased an electrifying bantamweight showdown where Joahnys Argilagos (9-1-1, 4 KOs) and Jose Lopez (4-2-3, 0 KO) battled to a standstill. The judges couldn’t agree on a winner, scoring it 78-74 for Lopez, 77-75 for Argilagos, and 76-76, ultimately leading to a draw.

Right from the start, Argilagos set a blazing pace with rapid-fire combinations. Lopez, not to be outdone, focused his attack on the body, slowly chipping away at Argilagos’ defenses. This strategy paid off as Lopez began to find openings for his heavy right hands, with Argilagos’ guard starting to lower.

The second round saw a slight shift. Argilagos wasn’t as busy but caught the eye with some flashy combinations. Lopez, undeterred, maintained his steady, relentless approach, jabbing with his left and following up with overhand rights, keeping the pressure on Argilagos.

As the rounds progressed, from the third through the seventh, the pattern of the fight became clear. Argilagos would unleash bursts of eye-catching punches, while Lopez steadily marched forward, peppering Argilagos with a barrage of body shots and consistently landing overhand rights.

In the final round, knowing the fight was still anyone’s to win, both fighters threw caution to the wind and went toe-to-toe in a thrilling exchange. The lack of knockdowns didn’t dampen the excitement, as the crowd erupted in cheers at the fight’s conclusion.
