Panamanian super featherweight contender, Jezreel Corrales, holds the 'Super' version of the WBA 130lb world title, and he takes on unbeaten Alberto Machado, a not so well known challenger, aiming to make a statement, a fighter trained by world renowned trainer, Freddie Roach.

Disappointingly, Corrales weighs in at a round up number of 134 lbs, not a pound and a half below the limit of the weight category above him, obviously, unable to make the weight in the extra time he could claim, it was clear that he would lose his title, which he does, meaning the title is winnable only for Machado, who does make the weight.

It looks like the unbeaten fighter who didn't lose his title through defeat, is on his way to putting a blemish on the challenger's record, preventing him from winning the belt. After 7 rounds, it seems like Machado has won a round, or more likely 2, but Corrales, though not winning a world title or defending one on this occasion, is comfortably ahead in the fight.

In round 8, Machado lands a fantastic counter punch which catches Corrales off guard, and drops him heavily, pretty much out of nowhere, Corrales shows the guts and desire to get up off the deck, but he looks very dazed, unsteady on his feet, and like the referee is making the correct split second decision as he stops the fight.

Alberto Machado pulls off a great upset, wins in impressive form, and becomes a world champion, making a name for himself in world class boxing.

Comments

Premature stoppage. Corrales looked like he could have continued and the ref was in a real hurry with that count. Corrales also hurt machado more than Machado hurt him throughout the fight. I want to see a rematch. But props for Machado's determination and landing that short hook when Corrales caught him with a punch and his hands down.

I disagree, he went down heavily, and when he got up, did he look to you like he was in a position to defend himself?, and did he look steady on his feet?, clear headed?, because to me, no, no, and no, I get that he was ahead in the fight, I get he hadn't taken a lot of punishment, I know he had only been down once, but at the end of the day, this is boxing, it is a life threatening sport, one punch can change a fight, one punch can put a fighter in danger.

My problem was mainly how the ref was in a hurry with his count, it might have been the fastest count i've ever seen. I counted it myself and Corrales got up after about 6 seconds, so yes i do think it was a bad stoppage considering Corrales was dominating the fight.

OK, so it was the count more than the decision?, and you think he should have tried to take an extra second to decide?, I understand, maybe Corrales got up too early, I think he did, but nevertheless, he looked all over the place, and getting up was a real achievement, and I mean, close to the full extent of what he had in him, no complaints about the stoppage from me, certainly not an inexcusable, unjust stoppage, but debatable, yes.
