Belasco April 2017 Al Applerose photos


Paramount's Charles Huerta floored Ivan Delgado with a perfectly timed one-two combination in the third round of their super featherweight fight on Friday April 14, at the Belasco Theater in downtown Los Angeles. Delgado, 26, walked into the ring undefeated. Huerta, 30, walked in as a former Golden Boy prospect years ago. A few months ago Huerta almost toppled another undefeated fighter but lost a close split decision. Now, he was facing another young hungry tiger in Delgado.








Huerta has his hand raised by referee Tom Taylor. Huerta has that look of knowledge in his eyes that comes from years of experiencing the ups and downs of an unforgiving sport. He had also tasted defeat by knockout as an undefeated fighter eight years earlier. The circle is completed. What's next for Huerta who's victory should be noted as one of the comebacks of all time in L.A. boxing history along Danny "Little Red" Lopez.

After both Huerta and Delgado exchanged some fierce combinations in the first two rounds. Huerta used his experience to time Delgado's exchanges and stopped the young warrior in the third round at Belasco Theater to win the battle of Los Angeles.
