CAMERON “SUAVE” KRAEL DEFEATS JOSE BORREGO BY MAJORITY DECISION

*LAS VEGAS *(September 22, 2018) – Las Vegas native, *Cameron “Suave” Krael*,
racks up another victory after a 10-round Super Lightweight showdown
against Mexico’s talented rising prospect*, Jose Borrego*, live from Sam’s
Town in Las Vegas. In the co-main event, *Xavier Martinez* scored a sixth
round TKO victory over *Oscar Bravo* to remain undefeated.

After 10 rounds of non-stop action, *Cameron* *Krael* (14-13-3, 3KOs) came
out on top over *Jose* *Borrego* (14-2, 12 KOs) to earn the victory.
Krael’s speed and piercing power allowed him to land strong shots and
counter punches to his opponent. The bout was a war from the start of the
first round, as the fighters took little time to feel each other out in the
first round before getting to business, and there was no turning back.
Krael and Borrego battled into the second round and continued the momentum
in the rounds that followed. Both fighters threw consistent combinations
and by the middle to late rounds they kept the fans on their feet. Krael’s
striking punches, and combinations of body shots and jabs, began to take a
toll on his opponent. The toe-to-toe action and exchanges of electrifying
blows continued until the bell sounded in the 10th and final round. It was
an all-out war and judges scored the bout a majority decision in favor of
Cameron “Suave” Krael”.

Borrego was unavailable for post-fight quotes.

“I absolutely do not agree with the judges’ decision, said Gary Jones,
Borrego’s manager. “I think our fighter won at least 7 or 8 rounds,
out-punched him every round, but you’re dealing with a small arena with a
loud crowd. He was a visitor and it was a hometown crowd and I think the
crowd noise influenced the judges every time our fighter got hit and it got
quiet every time our fighter hit him. It put the psychological target on
the judges to really call the fight right when they heard that kind of
noise. We’re going to work on not taking those shots at the end of the
exchanges. He got hit with a lot of jabs, but Krael definitely threw more
power punches and hit him with bigger shots. If Borrego can take care of
one thing and not get hit on the way out at the end of those exchanges, he
would’ve probably dominated the rounds.”

“I thought I did great, fought in true champion style, said Krael. “My
boxing was on point tonight, that’s what I showed new to my game, thanks to
my new coach Otis. He taught me how to box, how to jab, and just stay in
the outside pretty much. I didn’t face any major challenges against Borrego
because I knew he was going to bring the pressure and I just tried to stay
on the outside as much as possible. I felt that could’ve stayed busy with
my punches and threw a lot more of them. I’m ready for bigger things,
whatever they got coming up for me, I’m ready.”

20-year old unbeaten prospect, *Xavier Martinez* (12-0, 7KOs), headlined
the co-main event vs. veteran contender *Oscar Bravo* (23-9, 11KOs) in a
Super Featherweight battle. Both fighters entered the ring with explosive
shots. During the 2nd round, Bravo suffered a cut over the left eye from
the exchange of on target blows he received from Martinez. This didn’t stop
Bravo’s determination through the rounds. Martinez picked up the momentum
and continued dominating in the 3rdround and didn’t slow down. The referee
stopped the fight at 2:46 into the 6th round deciding that the fighter was
unable to continue, improving Martinez’ record to (12-0, 8KOs). This was
the first time Bravo has been stopped in his career.

“I’d rate my performance a ‘C’, I can’t ever be satisfied, stated Martinez.
“I got hit with a few punches that I shouldn’t have gotten hit with, but
it’s all a learning experience. I honestly knew he was going to be my
toughest opponent to-date. I could’ve been a little sharper on my defense
and went to the body a little more towards the end.”

“I don’t agree with the judges’ decisions, says Bravo. “I was taking shots
because I wanted to counter punch him with a cross punch, but the ref
thought I was hurt, and it wasn’t like that. I was only waiting for the
exact moment to cross punch and knock him out. I feel that I forced myself
enough, I knew I could throw another punch and be able to catch-up, but the
ref didn’t let me continue with my game plan that I had at that moment.”

Additional action saw a super middleweight match-up between *Lionell
Thompson*(20-5, 11KOs) and Indiana’s *Derrick Findley* (28-24-1, 18 KOs).
This fight between two hungry and experienced fighters started off very
measured with both fighters choosing their shots with caution but turned
out to be a full-on brawl. The fighters got the best of one another and
applied the pressure when needed. After 10-rounds of non-stop action,
judges scored the bout a unanimous decision in favor of Thompson improving
his record to (20-5, 11 KOs).

Philly’s* Christopher Brooker *(14-6, 5KOs) got his 14th victory over *Lanell
“KO” Bellows *(18-3-2, 11KOs) by unanimous decision. *Ava “The Lady of
Boxing” Knight* (16-2-4, 5KOs) entered the ring eager to earn a victory and
did just that by defeating *Nancy Franco *(15-13-2, 4KOs) by unanimous
decision in a 6-round action-packed bout. *Maurice “Ambitous” Lee* (8-1-1,
4KOs) suffered the first draw of his career after a hard-fought battle
between undefeated *Ivan Pandzic *(8-0-1, 4 KOs)*.*

Super middleweight, *Kevin Newman *made his return to the ring and improved
his record to (8-1-1, 4KOs) with a second round TKO victory over Ohio
native, *Egerbhert Reed* (4-5-1, 1KO). *Jose Valenzuela *(1-0) made his
pro-debut in stellar fashion by earning his first professional victory by
unanimous decision over *Humberto Tellez* (0-2) in a 4-round featherweight
bout. In the opening bout of the night, we saw prospect *Sevelle Hasan* (2-1,
1KO) defeat *Kaywann Sistrunk* (0-1-1) by technical knockout 1:10 into the
third round of a 4-round super lightweight battle.
