In the main event of the night at the Mesquite Rodeo in Mesquite, Texas, lightweight Alexis "El Perro" Del Bosque (17-5-1, 9 KO's) from Dallas, Texas, and Pedro "El Apostol Vicente (7-2-1, 2 KO's) from Puerto Rico gave the crowd it's moneys worth.


Both fighters came to the wring in top shape and the fight went the full eight rounds in a back and forth battle between 135 pounders to the delight of the crowd.


Throughout the battle, Del Bosque' supporters were heard chanting his nickname "Perro" "Perro" and so were Vicente' fans with "Boriqua" "Boriqua," for the Puerto Rican fighter.


At the beginning of the first round, Del Bosque started landing with his left jab and going to the body of his smaller opponent. Despite that disadvantage, Vicente held his own and countered against Del Bosque, but it was clear, his Puerto Rican foe came to fight.

As the fight continued into the third round, Del Bosque continued to land hard body punches, but it didn't seem to deter Vicente, who landed a big left to the head of Del Bosque close to the end of the round.


In the fifth round, both fighters were still at full steam, but Vicente was now forcing the fight, despite being hit with more body punches by Del Bosque.


Going into the sixth, Vicente was gaining the momentum as his corner was constantly telling him to keep moving forward as he landed looping over hand rights against Del Bosque.


In the seventh, Vicente landed a huge punch that appeared to rock but not hurt Del Bosque, and both fighters continued to battle toward the eight and final round.


In the eighth round, Vicente continued to force the fight and they stood toe to toe until the final bell that ended the fight.


To the apparent disappointment of Vicente and is corner, the final official scores had 79-73 for Del Bosque, 77-75 Vicente and 76-76 for a split draw.


Promoted by The Boxing Showcase and organized by Hector Vazquez’ Sweat Boxing, more fights by this promoter are expected this year, which included boxing legend MARCO ANTONIO BARRERA, former WBO Super Bantamweight, WBC World Featherweight, and WBC World Super Featherweight champion.


Barrera's most famous trilogy was against the great ERIK MORALES, former WBC World Super Bantamweight champion, WBO World Super Bantamweight champion, WBC World Featherweight champion, WBC World Super Featherweight champion, and IBF World Super Featherweight champion.


Barrera and Morales are scheduled to fight in the Dallas area for an exhibition fight in July of this year.
