Santana and Nugaev Notch Victories in Chumash


December 6, 2013 – Tonight Gary Shaw Productions presented another edition of the popular series titled “Central Coast Championships” at the Chumash Casino in Santa Ynez, California.

In the main event, local fan favorite Francisco Santana scored a 10-round unanimous decision over Joachim Alcine.  Santana dominated the bout from the opening round,  throwing hard punches to the head and body that kept Alcine on the retreat.  Scorecards read 99-90 twice and 100-89, all in favor for Santana who retained his “Central Coast Championship.”

“I wanted to come out here tonight and prove once again that I’m ready to step up in competition,” said Santana. “I felt great and I’m hoping I can work my way up the rankings in 2014, with the possibility to fight for a world title in the near future.  I’m looking forward to what my promoter Gary Shaw has lined up for me next.”

In the co-feature, Russian born lightweight contender Rustam Nugaev (26-6-1,  16 KOs) destroyed late sup, Mario Hermosillo with a first round knockout. A vicious body blow ended the contest at the 2:02 mark. Rated # 6 by the WBC, Nugaev is seeking a big fight in 2014.

“I’m ready to fight for a world title,” stated Nugaev. “Next year I’m going to work hard and put myself in position to fight for a championship. I know Gary Shaw is working hard to get me my shot. I won’t let him down of I get my opportunity.”
