Peralta repeted victory over Aumada in Buenos Aires

World Boxing Council (WBC) Latino cruiserweight champion, two-time olympian and unbeaten prospect Yamil Peralta, defeated former Latino champion Marcos “El Flaco” Aumada, by a wide unanimous decision after ten rounds, and defended for the first time his crown, in a highly expect rematch, at the main event of an exciting boxing night last Friday night at the Club Sportivo Barracas, in Buenos Aires, Argentina, promoted by Argentina Boxing Promotions.

In a hot clash between both of them, Peralta, 28 years old, from Del Viso, Buenos Aires, Argentinean representative in London 2012 -where he reached quarter finals- and Rio de Janeiro 2016, #1 of the Argentinean cruiserweight ranking and #32 WBC, dominated from bell to bell Aumada, 32, from San Luis, #4 of the Argentinean cruiserweight lists, who never found him at all. Making perfect use of his fast movements and the accuracy of his blows, the former olympian quickly connected his left jabs followed by right crosses and uppercuts to the jaw. As the rounds went by, the difference grew bigger. With confidence. Peralta unleashed powerful combinations to the head that stunned Aumada, showing the huge difference between each other’s skills. With a perfect strategy, he left every single attempt from the challenger in the air, and connected his own furious punches to the head and body. But in the eighth round, “El Flaco” managed to impact a left cross to the cheek of Peralta who was falling and ended in the canvas. Immediately after that, the champion regained control and the challenger commited fauls, so the referee Rodolfo Stella deducted one point from him. After that, the fght turned messy, with clinchs from both sides, but always with the champion having anything under control. When the last bell was heard, the result was obvius. And in this way, Peralta repeated the result of last May 11th, when he dethroned him also by unanimous decision in Buenos Aires.
