Sandor Martin put up another outstanding effort, defeating Jose Felix Jr by a lopsided decision at the Palau Olmpic Vall d’Hebron, in his hometown of Barcelona, Spain. In a 10-round bout, the junior welterweight contender, fresh off a majority-decision victory over Mikey Garcia, defeated Jose Felix by a near-shutout decision.
The scores were 100-90, 100-90, and 99-91, indicating that Felix received one round from judge.
Martin used his physical power and technical superiority to control the battle at will, hurting the opponent in numerous sections and winning by a wide margin.
As early as the second round, Felix’s left eye began to swell. Martin’s southpaw jab was effective, as the Spaniard threw long straight lefts quickly.
Felix, on the other hand, was eager and assertive. He was successful when he attacked early in the fifth and landed a left hook near the finish of the round.
Felix, admitted to taking shots to the body and head in the seventh round, and he was hit by a right hook to start Round 8 and again by a long straight left later in the session, despite the visitor waving it off and saying he wasn’t affected.
“I want to fight the best fighters in the world, Jose Ramirez, Regis Prograis, Jose Zepeda, Teofimo Lopez. I want to fight the best of them because I want to win a world title,” said Sandor Martin. Martin (40-2, 13 KOs) has now won 11 straight fights and is closing in on a world title shot.
