Nazareno, De La Torre win undercard bouts

By Eddie Alinea | Nov. 25, 2013 at 12:01am

MACAU—Filipinos Dan Nazareno Jr. and Harmonito dela Torre fashioned out a pair of abbreviated victories in the undercards of the Manny Pacquiao-Brandon Rios showdown yesterday at the Cotai Arena of the Venetian Macau resort Hotel here.

The Pampangueno Nazareno, fighting as a welterweight, proved to be the better of Pacquiao’s sparring partners as he dominated from the opening bell in forcing the corner of Liam Vaughan of England to throw in the towel 58.77 seconds into the second round of their four-round encounter.

Nazareno and Vaughan both helped the Filipino ring icon as his sparmates at the Pacman Wild Card Gym in General Santos City, where Pacquiao pitched camp for nine weeks before coming to this gambling city.

Nazareno of the Rommel Nazario Boxing Stable in Paranaque City was pummeling Vaughan with left-right combinations in the corner, when Filipino trainer Marvin Somodio signaled referee SawaengThaweekon to stop the annihilation as his boy had had enough.

Nazareno, thus, improved to an 18-10 win-loss slate, with 13 knockouts. Vaughan fell to 8-2, with 2 KOs.

Dela Torre, a lightweight, likewise, toyed with Indonesian Jason Butar-Butar from the start. He caught his opponent with a right uppercut in the third round of their six-round clash, which the referee thought was a push

The third man in the ring, the same official who called the Nazareno-Vaughan fight, nevertheless, counted out Butar-Butar who remained lying on the mat.

Dela Torre remained unbeaten in 11 times, with his sixth stoppage win. The loss was Butar-Butar’s 12th in 17 tries.

Nazareno and Dela Torre’s twin jewels somehow overshadowed unbeaten Mexican Andy Ruiz Jr.’s third round TKO win over Tor Hamer that crowned the former the new World Boxing Organization international heavyweight belt owner. It was Ruiz’s 21st consecutive win.
