Martin and Esquivias Victorious


ONTARIO CA (July 1, 2013) – This past Friday June 28, Thompson Boxing Promotions “Path to Glory” card at the Double Tree Hotel was another great success.  In the main event, super bantamweight Christopher Martin (27-2-3, 9 KOs) continued his march toward his goal of fighting for a world title with a hard fought KO win against Raul Hidalgo (20-9, 16 KOs).


Both fighters had their moments in the early rounds but it was Hildago who was landing the harder blows.  Martin had to dig deep to get them momentum back in his favor after it was evident that he was down in the fight.  Entering the fifth round, Martin started to put his punches together and Hildago was on the receiving end of some powerful combinations that had him hurt.  A hard punch to the body from Martin put Hildago down and the fight was over.  The bout was stopped at the 2:37 mark of round five.


“This was a tough fight but one I needed to win and that’s exactly what I did.” said Martin. “Hildago proved to be a very durable opponent but once I started to land my combinations I can see I was hurting him.  I landed a nice body shot and the referee stopped the fight.  I’m happy with my performance and I’m looking forward to my next fight.”


“Christopher is riding a nice four-fight winning streak and he’s put himself in a great position,” said Thompson Boxing’s Alex Camponovo. “If he continues to win, I can see him fighting for a world title by the end of the year.  We’ll get together with his team and present him with a few different options.”

In the co-main event, featherweights Efrain Esquivias (16-2-1, 9KOs) and Victor Sanchez (5-6-2, 2KOs) had their fight stopped early after an accidental clash of heads forced the referee to halt the bout at the 2:22 mark of round two.  The bout was ruled a technical draw.
