Louie Burke: Abie Han, Dallas Update

The Dallas real estate industry dressed in tuxedos and classy evening gowns witnessed Abie Han dismantle a tough Jose Gonzalez. The main event scheduled for 8 rounds, started off with both fighters meeting in the center of the ring and fighting in close quarters for most of the round, with a slight edge going to Abie. Abie’s quickness proved to be the defining factor as he caught Gonzalez with numerous left hooks in the second round gaining a decisive edge. In what became the final round, had Abie starting to connect more frequently with body shots and uppercuts, creating an opening for the left hook, which dropped Gonzalez. Gonzalez was barely able to make the 10 count and tried to weather the storm, but as the round went on, Abie was landing hard shots, forcing referee Lawrence Cole, to stop the Match.

This was a good test for Abie. Gonzalez is no slouch and is notorious for his ability to take a punch, weather a storm and come back throwing a ton of punches. Whoever might of seen the battle between Gonzalez and Joaquin Zamora, knows what kind of warrior this kid is. Last month Gonzales fought USBA junior middleweight champ Derek Ennis to a 10 round majority decision loss, in Ennis’ backyard! Not only is Gonzalez tough, but a classy man as well. We wish him the best of luck in the future.

Thank’s for the support you’ve shown
