Reveco vs. Nunez: Winner, Scorecard and Analysis
Juan Carlos Reveco retained his WBA World flyweight title with a technical decision victory over Ricardo Nunez on Saturday night.
While the spotlight was on Timothy Bradley and Juan Manuel Marquez in Las Vegas, Reveco put on a clinic in his native Argentina. The 30-year-old was impressive throughout Saturday's bout, controlling the action early and often.
Unfortunately, the fight had to be stopped after an unintentional head-butt in the eighth round. Had it continued, though, Reveco likely would have knocked Nunez out.
Reveco dominated Nunez for much of the fight, continually landing a mean left hook. He busted through Nunez's defense with ease, and he seemed to confound the Panamanian with each passing round.
With the win, Reveco improved to 32-1-0 (17 KOs). He has now successfully defended his title five consecutive times, which should earn him a more high-profile fight in the near future. Reveco hasn't lost since his first attempt at a title defense in December 2007.
Meanwhile, this was a learning experience for the 25-year-old Nunez. He clearly has a lot to improve on before he will be able to snatch a title from a fighter of Reveco's caliber.
However, Nunez is still a promising young fighter.
His record drops to 25-4 (22 KOs) with the loss, but the powerful Panamanian has plenty left in the tank. He will be a better boxer because of this fight, and I wouldn't be surprised if he lands another title shot within the next two or three years.
