Super featherweight sensation Eduardo “Rocky” Hernandez, who suffered an unexpected first round KO loss in July, has returned with a sizzling stoppage win against tough as nails Sergio “Dandy Puente.”
Initially give and take, but the sustained non stop onslaught of Rocky, especially the body attack and left hooks to the head, sapped his opponent, who`s corner retired him after six torrid rounds at Palenque de La Feria, Cd Victoria. Rocky`s record is an impressive 29-1, with 26 KO`s. A momentary lapse which resulted him being left hooked to the canvass, also causing a knee injury, in Carson this Summer, by power puncher Roger Gutierrez, has set back Rocky`s plans.
He`s candidly admitting that it`s back to the drawing board and that he`s starting afresh from zero. But the win against Dandy, who`d never been previously stopped, is a pleasing indication. The knee injury has healed well, with Rocky turning his hand to soccer.
Coincidently, formidable WBC super featherweight champion Miguel “Alacran” Berchelt 37-1, 33 KO`s has also suffered a single stoppage loss, but his career is now going from strength to strength. Rocky prudently says he wants to challenge Miguel, but at the right time.
