Abraham Montoya W8 Alejandro Guerrero ... In the opening bout of the ShoBox telecast, two lightweights put on an entertaining affair, but it was Mexico’s Abraham Montoya (20-2-1, 14 KOs) who won a majority decision against ShoBox returnee Alejandro Guerrero (12-1, 9 KOs). The judges scored the fight 76-76, 79-73 and 77-75. Both Montoya and Houston’s Guerrero, who scored a majority decision over Jose Angulo on ShoBox in March 2020, came out aggressively from the opening bell and combined to throw 235 punches in the first round. Both fighters would continue with the torrid pace, but it was Montoya who was more active and accurate. Montoya out-landed Guerrero 268-198 in total punches, including 71 body shots to Guerrero’s 49. The two combined to throw 1,623 punches throughout the eight rounds, and Montoya attributed the win to his conditioning.
“I felt great tonight and it was all because my physical trainer Raul Franco got me in shape for this fight,” said Montoya. “He is the reason I was able to throw so many punches tonight. I felt I could have kept that pace for 10 or 12 rounds if I had to. I felt good at lightweight and didn’t have to worry about my weight but I am definitely moving back down to super featherweight. I only moved up for this opportunity. I felt I would have knocked him out at super featherweight.” source: showtime
