On Tuesday night at the Hard Rock Live in the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, Danielito Zorrilla (16-0, 12KOs), of Toa Baja, Puerto Rico knocked out Mexico’s Pablo Cesar Cano (33-8-1, 23 KOs), in the second round.
A damaging combination seriously hurt Cano, who took a knee and was unable to continue. Time of the stoppage was 0:35 of the stanza in their scheduled ten-round junior welterweight bout.
Said Zorrilla after the victory – “This is a statement, I want to be a world champion. I am not playing. I will not stop until I beat everybody in my division. I want to fight the best. Miguel Cotto and Tito Trinidad, they have been an inspiration for me. I learn from them and now I want to follow their steps in the ring.”
In the co-feature, a scheduled ten round bout in the junior welterweight division saw Nahir Albright (14-1, 7 KOs), stop Michael Ducthover (15-2, 10 KOs), after six rounds as the bout was stopped when Dutchover’s corner felt their boxer had taken took much punishment
The more skilled and heavier handed Albright controlled the action from the outset, dropping Dutchover a total of four times throughout the contest.
Said Albright after the victory, “I train very hard every day and it showed tonight. I focused on his cuts like a shark. I didn’t know I’d hurt him that quickly in the fight but I stuck to my game plan and took care of business, it seemed like every time I hit him I hurt him.”
