Julaton Fight In Argentina
March 18, 2012 by staff
Julaton Fight In Argentina, Unable to cope with the work rate of a volume puncher, Ana (The Hurricane) Julaton failed to capitalize on an early knockdown and yielded her WBO female superbantamweight crown to hometown favorite Yesica (La Leona) Marcos via a unanimous 10-round decision at a jampacked Teatro Griego Juan Pablo Segundo in San Martin, Mendoza, Argentina, Friday night (yesterday morning, Manila time).
It was a bruising battle for both fighters as they never took a step back from start to finish. Julaton, a 3-1 underdog, braved the odds by staking her title in Marcos’ backyard and wasn’t accorded the usual respect for a champion by Argentine promoter Osvaldo Rivero as she entered the ring and was introduced ahead of the challenger. In boxing tradition, the champion is given the privilege of climbing the ring after the challenger and the last introduction.
Julaton scaled 122 pounds for the bout and Marcos, 120 3/4.
Referee Roberto Ramirez Sr., a Puerto Rican, and the three judges – Cesar Ramos and Jose Roberto Torres of Puerto Rico and Ignacio Robles of Panama – came from neutral countries but their Hispanic bias was evident. Ramirez slapped a point deduction on Julaton in the fifth round despite only one prior warning and curtailed the Fil-Am’s momentum. In the end, the judges scorecards reflected a one-sided fight that wasn’t nearly as indicated. Ramos and Robles had it 98-92 while Torres, 98-91, all for Marcos.
While Marcos deserved the win, the margin of difference in the scorecards was a shocker. The Star scored it 95-93 for the Argentinian.
