March 26th Rock Solid Card Results

On Thursday night at the Humble Civic Center in Houston, Texas, local fight fans were treated to another exciting night of boxing. Due to overwhelming fan support, Cameron Park, the head man in charge of Rock Solid promotions had to move his card to a larger venue this time around to accommodate their steadily growing fan base.

To kick things off Sammy DiPace (6-0, 3KOs) of Les Cruses, NM took on Saul Gutierrez (5-14, 1 KO) of Houston, Texas in a Bantamweight fight. DiPace scored a four round unanimous decision. Both fighters came out fast in the opening round and fought virtually an even round. By the second round PiPace was able to take command of the fight using counter right hands, speedy combinations, and steady body work. The judges scored the fight 40-36 (2x), and 39-37 in favor of DiPace.

In Cruiserweight action, Willie Edwards of Beaumont, Texas and Brent Urban (1-1, 1 KO) of Dallas, Texas fought in a slugfest that had the crowd in frenzy for the first three rounds. Edwards hit Urban with everything but the kitchen sink but Urban refused to let up. In the end, Edwards` superior hand speed was the difference in the fight. The official judges scorecards read 39-37 (2x), and 40-36 in favor of Edwards. With the win Edwards improved his record to 6-0 with 2 knockouts.

The robbery of the night happened in the bout between Jose Gutierrez of Houston, Texas and Deon Nash of Lutcher. LA. Nash dominated every round with his crisp counter punching, and longer reach. Nash had Gutierrez hurt to the body multiple times in the bout as well. From ringside, it appeared as if Nash won every round. The judges saw differently scoring the fight 59-55, 57-57, and 58-56 in favor of Gutierrez. With a very early Christmas gift from the judges Gutierrez improves to 13-6 with 9 knockouts.



In the Co-Main event, Houston`s own Crystal "Choo Choo" Delgado was stopped in the 6th and final round by the tough Stacy Reile from Miami, Florida. Delgado came in extremely fast by attacking Reile in the first round. By the third round, the fight clearly shifted in favor of Reile as she dropped Delgado with a clean body shot.



Still game, Delgado managed to hang tough as the rounds went on. In the last round, a bloodied and obviously fatigued Delgado was overwhelmed by a series of body shots. She was counted out 23 seconds into the round suffering the first loss of her young career.


The victorious Stacy Reile was extremely excited about her victory. "She gave me the toughest fight out of any of my nine opponents, and she had a hard head too. I had a tough time getting in for the body shots, but when I did land them they worked" she said. Stacy Reile improved her record to 9-1 with 4 knockouts, while Delgado drops to 8-1 with 1 knockout.

The main event featured Texas State Middleweight Champion Alfonso "El Tigre" Lopez from Houston, Texas and Billy Thompson of Garland, Texas. Lopez (13-0, 11KOs) barely broke a sweat in this fight. He took command early with his much sharper punches and better overall boxing pedigree. Thompson (8-10, 3KOs) appeared as if he didn`t want to be there as soon as he tasted Lopez` power. In the third round, Lopez landed a clean right hand that knocked Thompson`s equilibrium completely off. He wobbled around nearly 5 seconds before going down and wasn`t able to beat the count.



Lopez was able to successfully defend his Texas Middleweight title as the bout was waved off 53 seconds into the third round.
