HOLLYWOOD, CA.-It was a gut wrenching night at the Hollywood Avalon, where fans came out to see rising prospects at the 360 Promotions Hollywood fight night on Sunday.

 

The event that headlined the night was between rising star, Ukrainian Serhii “El Flaco” Bohachuck (14-0, 14 KO’s) and Mexican warrior, Fernando Marin (16-3-3, 12 KO’s). This bout was the knockout star, Bohachuck’s first 10-round scheduled bout.

 

Boachuck, training out of Big Bear, CA had total control throughout the fight, landing almost every hit to his tough opponent. Marin gave Bohachuck some action, throwing in jabs and hooks when possible.

 

It was evident throughout the fight that, although being able to take and respond to the heavy hitters thrown by Bohachuck, Marin could not execute as many solid hits.

 

The fight was stopped in the third round after a very skilled Bohachuck easily out landed an excessive amount of hits on his tiring opponent, which forced the referee to bring the fight to a close.

 

“This opponent was really strong I was hitting him hard and he was still standing,” said Bohachuck, after his win.

 

This is Bohachucks 15th consecutive win and knockout. The undefeated rising star is being compared to Kazakhstani middleweight world champion, Gennadiy “Triple G” Golovkin (39-1-1, 25 KO’s). Golovkin is known for his long range of consecutive wins, with 35 knockouts to his name.

 

With Bohachuk’s rising notoriety for his skill and continuous knockouts, he is becoming a spectacle for boxing fans, bringing promise of a great boxing career.

 

 

Corona

 

In the super featherweight division, Adrian Corona (5-0) went against Francisco “Bebe” Camacho (7-11-1, 3 KO’s). Within the first round, Corona displayed control, remaining calm and strategic with his throws. Camacho proved to put up a fight for Corona, dancing along the ropes, switching stances and landing several right-hand jabs.

 

Corona, son of boxing referee Ray Corona, brought more power to the fight in the fourth round, landing several right hands and a left-hook to his opponent. The round quickly turned to a brawl, the two exchanging hit for hit and spilling blood.

 

In the sixth round, Camacho began tipping over, failing to exert any power into his punches. It was a right hand followed by a left hook from Corona that moved referee Zachary Young to bring the fight to a halt at 2:24 of round six.

 

This is Coronas first knock out of his career. The 19-year old moves to 6 wins and zero losses, leaving Corona undefeated.
