A night of amateur boxing showcased a great deal of athletes Saturday at the Dededo Sports Complex, each trying to take home the win.

In the first main event, 15-year-old Adrienne Francisco gave his supporters and the crowd a display of his talent, outlasting his opponent 17-year-old Nathan Camacho. Francisco’s quickness in offense and fast reflexes in defense gave him the dominance in all three rounds. With a quick knockdown in the first round, Francisco seemed to have the match on his side.

“I believe I had it,” said Francisco about his knockdown. “My game plan was jab jab, just like what I did and just keep boxing. I felt [Camacho] would slow down a bit, which he did, but it was good.”

Francisco came out with a bell of fury, landing uppercuts and counter punches against Camacho. With short fatigue coming from his opponent, Francisco used this to his advantage, causing another knockdown in the third round.

“I felt very good,” Francisco said about his performance. “I worked hard for this.”

Nicolas Raval came in with determination and came out with the victory against Derek Padrones. With neither showing complete dominance over the other, Raval and Padrones gave their supporters a fight to awe over. Raval’s quickness and Padrones’ power gave the other a harder time to take control.

“I know I have more gas,” Raval commented about his game plan. “But other than that, [Padrones] really out powered me.”

By the third round, Padrones fatigued, giving Raval an easier time to control the pace. Raval’s speed and stamina took over Padrones’ hard hits. From that point, Raval took over, landing solid punches to Padrones’ head and body.

When asked about his original match with Vince Camp, Raval stated, “My mind set was really set for Vince Camp, but re-matching my really strong opponent, it was really tough and it really woke me up.”
