LOS ANGELES (July 7, 2018): Oscar "El Jaguar" Negrete (18-1, 7 KOs) once again proved why he deserves another world title shot as he soundly beat Diuhl Olguin (13-10-3, 9 KOs) of Guadalajara, Mexico via unanimous decision in the eight-round main event of the July 6 edition of LA FIGHT CLUB at the Belasco Theater in Los Angeles and televised nationally on EstrellaTV's Boxeo Estelar. The native of Tierralta, Colombia won with scores of 78-74, 79-73 and 79-73.

 

"I feel excellent," said Oscar Negrete. "I give all my respect to Olguin because he's a tough fighter who came to win. He's a warrior and can take a lot of punches. I feel I'm now ready to fight for another world title shot. I'm back at 118 pounds where I belong, and I want the opportunity."

 

VIP guests for tonight's event included Joet Gonzalez, Manny Robles III, Marvin Cabrera, Seniesa "Super Bad" Estrada, Patrick Teixeira, Joselito "El Huracan" Velazquez, and Alberto Machado. 

 

In tonight's co-main event, Rigoberto Hermosillo (12-0-1, 9 KOs) of Guadalajara, Mexico scored a fifth-round body-shot knockout win against Ernesto Guerrero (29-22, 19 KOs) of Sonora, Mexico in a scheduled eight-round super featherweight fight. Hermosillo won at 2:30 of the fifth round. 

 

"I hadn't fought in over a year," said Rigoberto Hermosillo. "So it took some time for me to find my distance. But then I eventually found it and stopped the fight. I'm back and I'm ready to get better. It's up to what my team wants, but I'm ready for anyone."

 

Raul Curiel (4-0, 3 KOs) of Tamaulipas, Mexico defeated Demetrius Wilson (2-8) of Florissant, Missvia second-round knockout in a scheduled four-round super welterweight fight. Curiel stopped Wilson at 2:13 of the aforementioned round. 

 

"He [Wilson] was kind of awkward and had an unorthodox style," said Raul Curiel. "His shorter height was also a factor. That's why it was kind of hard to find him. Then I got him with the hook to the body and an upper to the head and finished the fight. I felt a big difference training with Freddie Roach. I felt very strong."

 

Blair Cobbs (8-0-1, 5 KOs) of Las Vegas, Nevada scored a four-round unanimous decision victory against Juan Rivera (19-30, 13 KOs) of Aguascalientes, Mexico in a 140-pound fight that started the night of festivities. Cobbs won with scores of 39-37, 39-37 and 40-36.

 

"I felt strong going into this fight and I got the win," said Blair Cobbs. "I'm going to continue working hard in the gym with the goal to be better each time I enter the ring. I can't wait to come back."
