GUAYAQUIL, Ecuador._ Marco Alonso Verde Álvarez from Sinaloa advanced to the Final in the Guayaquil 2022 Elite Men’s-Women’s Boxing Continental Championship, in the Light Medium category (71 kilos), by beating American by split decision.

Verde Álvarez, who has just beaten Dominican Noel Pacheco, and Tyreec Taitt, from Barbados, also by the same route, came out cautious in the first round, trying to decipher the scheme of the American, who had longer arms, but did not took advantage.

The Mazatlan began to settle in the ring and closed the first round strong, but in the second, he tried to knock out his rival, and although he managed to connect some blows, he left his face uncovered, saving himself from several straights and hooks that Jones threw at him. .

In the last round, both boxers sought victory, and it was Marco Alonso Verde who struck the best blows and that allowed him to come out with his arms raised and settle in the Final, as did his compatriot and also from Sinaloa, Brianda Tamara Cruz.
