San Diego’s Chris Chatman wows them in Ontario, CA.

Friday night in Ontario, CA, San Diego’s Chris Chatman caught Riverside’s Alberto Herrera early to score two first round knockdowns, and then got the referee to stop the bout at 2:47 of the fourth round.

Undefeated and the local favorite, Herrera never stood a chance against the much quicker southpaw. Herrera (7-1-1, 5 KOs) kept getting hit by those powerful left hands.


“I saw that he fought that Mexican style with no angles,” said Chatman later. “He didn’t feint, he was right there and fought like a warrior.  I thank my old trainer Pepe Morales for teaching me how to fight that style. He knew I would be fighting a lot of Mexican fighters.”

On the Undercard:

Downey’s Chris Rizo (6-0-1, 3 KOs) won a unanimous decision victory over Riverside’s Alex Viramontes (9-7, 3 KO’s), who was returning to the ring after a two year layoff.

Oscar “El Terrible” Andrade (3-0, 3 KO’s) also used his powerful left. This time Federico Martinez (0-1) was the victim. A dozen left hands including one to the body dropped Martinez for good at 2:07 of the first round.

It took Palmdale’s Donyil Livingston (2-0, 2 KO’s) two rounds to finish off Steve Macomber (3-10-1). Livingston waited for an opening for his counter right and when he got it, bang, down went Macomber at 2:55 of the second round.

In a lightweight bout featuring two boxers making their pro debuts it was San Fernando’s Sergio Nunez (1-0) stopping Washington’s Mike Cross (0-1). In the second round Nunez  doubled up on his left hook. He beat the count and was caught with another left hook. After stumbling to the floor, referee Ray Corona stopped the bout at 2:36 of the second.

Bantamweight Daniel Roman needed only 43 seconds to win his pro debut.  After landing a pile-driver left to the midsection that turned Cristian Cruz (2-2) completely around, Cruz could not continue.
