Saturday night, Mayweather Promotions hosted another “Sin City Showdown” at Sam’s Town. This card headlined Juan Heraldez vs. Maynard Allison.
Heraldez dominated the fight, winning by TKO @1:05 of the third round. He improved his record to 15-0, with 9 by knockout. In the first round, the fighters were simply getting a feel for each other. Allison tried to apply some pressure in the second round, resulting in Heraldez adjusting his game. Heraldez landed a solid shot that hurt Allison. In the third round, Heraldez dropped Allison with a flurry of punches and the referee stopped the fight. Allison (11-4, 7 KOs) admitted that he was hurt, but said he wasn’t out of it and felt like the referee stopped the fight too early.
Boxing Channel had an opportunity to ask Heraldez a few questions after the fight. In this video, Heraldez discusses his thoughts on the fight and what’s next for him.
