David Diaz Pounds a Win, Diosdado Gabi gives a Boxing Lesson and Steven Luevano takes a Decision
By Gabriel Montoya Reporting from Ringside, Doghouse Boxing (March 16, 2008)          
These results come from the undercard of Juan Manuel Marquez vs Manny Pacquiao II. In the first televised fight of the night, lightweight titleholder, David Diaz pounded out a majority decision over game challenger Roman Montano in a non-title affair. It was a phone booth bout highlighted by a slick move from Joe Cortez. In the final round, Montano’s mouthpiece went flying. Cortez picked up as the action boiled over. Montano’s glove tape then went loose. Rather than force a break in the action, Cortez waited for them to come inside and he reached in a ripped the tape loose in a smooth motion. The crowd went
wild in appreciation.

Next up was Diosdado Gabi vs. Abner Mares in a bantamweight 12 rounder. Nacho Beristain trains Mares and the pairing looks great. He showed speed, poise, power and excellent finishing skills in dispatching Gabi in a minute into the second round.

The co-feature of the evening between Terdsak Jandaeng and Steven Luevano was a bit more tentative but it heated up as the fight went on. Luevano survived a more than a couple rough patches moments to take the decision.
