Southpaw Z Gorres (30-2-2, 15KOs) dropped Colombia's Luis Melendez (26-4-1, 21KOs) in the third round of scheduled ten round Bantamweight outing, controlled the majority of the fight behind sharp shots and solid defense before getting nailed hard by a Melendez left in the final minute of the fight.

Able to beat the count and holding on in the last seconds of a Melendez charge, Gorrez was barely able to stand upright. Under wobbly legs he would be declared the winner with scores of 98-90 (twice) and 97-91.

Glassy eyed and still wobbly, Gorrez tried to get out of the ring under his own power, but drop to the ground. After several worrying minutes, Gorrez was taken away on a stretcher still in bad shape to the nearby University Medical Center. Update: Latest word is that Z Gorres is in critical condition and is under going surgery for head trauma.
