Herrera’s victory on the boxing night in Las Varas

From the first round, the fight was impressive and it was Liendo who struck first, since with a right ball he made Herrera stumble, who received a standing count from referee Lucas Katalinich. In the next action, a combination of the cruz delejeño put Liendo on the canvas, but he got up to finish the round connecting the best shots.

The intensity did not drop in the second episode, where Herrera’s best order prevailed, although at times, leaving the orthodoxy, he hit a couple of downward blows to the edge of the regulation, causing angry protests from the Riocuartense, scenes that were repeated in the third , with Liendo falling three times (one due to an alleged blow to the back of the neck for which Herrera was deducted a point) and the other two valid.

Those two knockdowns came after an intense punishment from Herrera in the lower zone, a task that the winner repeated in the fourth, a round that, however, had begun with a furious arrest by Liendo, shaking his rival with a couple of hard impacts to head.

Finally, midway through round 4, a right hand from Herrera to the ribs, led to a new visit from Liendo to the canvas. Tired and with weak legs, the loser stood up and received the “no va más” from the referee in the middle of the protection count.

In an impressive streak of 11 wins in a row and in what is his best year as a hired fighter, Herrera, 4th in the FAB welterweight ranking, 26, raised his record to 14-1-0-1 sd, 6 KO, while Manuel Liendo, 28, was 14-7, 4 KO.

The undercard of the card went to the current Argentine middleweight champion, the undefeated Gerardo Vergara (16-0, 9 KOs and 71,600 kg), who outpointed, by wide and unanimous decision after eight rounds, the experienced and always difficult David “Herradura” Romero (12-19-1, 5 KO and 71,900).

In this way, the new presentation of the Bahian “Typhoon” in his hometown, on October 21, was almost confirmed, where it is very possible that he will exhibit his national crown.
