Bohachuk Remains Undefeated With Blast Out of Freddy Hernandez



By Lauren Rodriguez


HOLLYWOOD, Ca.- It was an explosive Sunday at the Avalon Theater in Hollywood where 360 promotions held their monthly Hollywood Fight Night.


Ukrainian fighter, Serhii “El Flaco” Bohachuk (14-0, 14 KOs) is left undefeated with 14 wins to his name, all by knock out, after a tough fight against Freddy “El Riel” Hernandez (34-11, 22 KO’s).


The fight was a tactical one as both fighters, especially an older Hernandez, fought with every ounce of power and skill.


It was an intense fight from beginning to end as the power in Bohachuk’s punches could be heard throughout the theater.


In the 2nd round, Hernandez was knocked down by a counter right hand to the head but rose quickly as he continued out the fight.


As the bout progressed, it became noticeable that the agility of 40-year-old Hernandez was no comparison for a young 24-year old Bohachuk whose youthful endurance could not be matched.


Although it seemed the fight could have ended as early as round 2, it was clear that Hernandez would not quit, as he fought for his life.


The fight was stopped in the 5th round at 1:40 by referee Wayne Hedgpeth after a left hook to the body dropped Hernandez.


Hernandez stated that this fight against Bohachuk would be his last, as he would be retiring from boxing.


 “Freddy is a very tough and great boxer,” said Bohachuk, “I think in my professional career, he has been my toughest fight so far.”




Other Bouts


The super flyweight fight between orthodox fighters, George “El Phantasma” Navarro (5-0-1, 2 KO’s) and Cesar Sustaita (3-4, 3 KO’s) ended with a knockout from Navarro.


The first seconds of the round foreshadowed a win for Navarro who seemed to have hurt Sustaita with shots to the body.



Instead, it was an overhand right to the chin by Navarro that dropped Sustaita to the ground, closing the fight at 1:37 of the first round.


This win leaves Navarro undefeated with 6 wins and 3 knockouts.




Adrian “Bam Bam” Corona (4-0) is left undefeated after 6 intense rounds against Canton Miller (3-2-1, 1 KO). The orthodox fighters fought blow for blow as they each threw powerful shots, giving the crowd an entertaining show.


Corona, son of referee Ray Corona, used distance to his advantage whereas Millers punches appeared to be more powerful.


In the end Corona proved his resilience as he kept a dancing Miller in his range.


The score was a split decision between judges, with one score of 58-56 for Miller and two scores of 58-56 naming Corona as winner.




The fight between super bantamweight fighters Humberto “Filly” Rubalcava (9-1, 6 KO’s) and Daniel Constantino (3-2-2, 1KO) ended as quickly and as explosive as it began. The fight ended in a knockout at 1:39 of the 1st round with a win for Rubaclava.



The fight ended after what seemed like an eternity of Constantino on the ropes, being pounded by Rubalcava, before it was broken up and determined a knockout.
