Former International champion Marcos “Pimienta” Ojeda pulverized Ezequiel Salyal Lozano, by a vicious knock out in the third round, and conquered the World Boxing Organization (WBO) Latino super featherweight title, at the main event of an exciting boxing night last Friday night at Club Atlético Huracán, in Buenos Aires, Argentina, promoted by Argentina Boxing Promotions, of Mario Margossian.
In an action packed fight, Ojeda, from Uriburu, La Pampa, former World Boxing Council (WBC) International champion and #32 WBC, and #3 of the Argentinean super featherweight ranking, took two rounds to study Sayal Lozano, from 25 de Mayo, Buenos Aires, before finishing him in the third. After dominating the first two chapters, in the third the 27 year old prospect stepped on the accelerator. Dominating the distance, he took him to the ropes where he connected a left cross to the cheek followed by a strong right hook to the stomach, making his opponent stumble. Without letting him breath, “Pimienta” stroke him down with a resounding left cross to the temple sending Sayal Lozano to the canvas, showing no response, and where he heard the ten count of the referee Antonio Zaragoza.
