A pretty busy weekend in the Land of Silver and this recap of events starts last night at the Asociacion Athletica Quimsa in the northern city of Santiago Del Estero, which has the distinction of being the earliest Spanish established town in the country.
The evening's entertainment was headlined by a barnburner at light welter with Carlos Martin "El Finito" Ahumada, 14-0 (5), of Buenos Aires dropping local southpaw Gaston Sebastian Isasmendi Sellan, 20-10-1 (4), in the eighth before pulling out a ten round majority decision.
Local welter Walter Damian Diaz, 25-7-1 (15), bounced back from his failed bid to unseat South American Light Welter Champ Carlos Wilfredo Vilches in a rematch by producing his second consecutive knockout, ending the ambitions of crosstown rival Ariel Sebastian Villalba, 20-10 (10).
Another area man, Carlos Ricardo Rodriguez, 19-2 (10), came back from his loss to WBC Mundo Hispano Featherweight titlist Felipe Carlos Felix in September with a fourth round KO of La Rioja's Cristian Javier Olmedo, 5-7-3 (1), in a return match to their June bout that Rodriguez won on points.
Also in the north, there were two cards on Friday in Tucuman province with heavyweight action in Graneros that saw former WBC Mundo Hispano titlist Manuel Alberto Pucheta, 21-3 (15), KO Ricardo Zenon Pereyra, 6-13-2 (4), in the second and Sebastian Ignacio Ceballos, 13-6-1 (8), also won by knockout when he starched 41 year old Paraguayan southpaw Nicasio Moray Martinez, 28-21-4 (12), in the fourth.
At Club Defensores de Villa Lujan in San Miguel, light flyweight Gustavo Adrian Rodriguez, 14-8 (3), bounced back from a failed WBC Latino title challenge against Luis Alberto Lazarte in June to outpoint Juan Carlos Cejas, 8-27-3 (1), who has now dropped three straight bouts.
We close this week's Argentinian report with a show at Club Huracan in Cordoba, where local light welter Sergio Omar Priotti, 20-6-1 (7), won his second bout on the bounce with a six round points verdict over Corrientes southpaw Ricardo Fabricio Chamorro, 18-26-3 (10), who has now lost nine straight.
