David Gomez vs. Joshua Aveles
The crowd went wild for this fight and rightfully so!  Both fighters were really tactical but weren’t afraid to throwdown.  The first two rounds went to Aveles as he used his crafty boxing to punish Gomez with body shots.  Aveles was also able to defend the takedown.

In the third round, the tide began to change.  Gomez was landing harder kicks and it took its toll on Aveles.  Aveles stopped throwing body shots and Gomez took advantage of it.  Still a close round but I gave it to Gomez because he landed cleaner shots.

The championship rounds of forth and fifth round also went to Gomez as he was finally able to take Aveles down.  Aveles defended well on the ground but couldn’t get up until the ref stood it up.  The fight was really close and it could have gone to either fighter.  The judges made a split decision and gave it to Gomez.  He became the new welterweight champion.
