The “Pitbull” Impressive in a Dominant Win over Alejandro Guerrero


At the Central Park Community Center in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, the well-regarded Otar Eranosyan takes on Alejandro Guerrero in an eight-round junior lightweight contest. Eranosyan was born and raised in Akhalkalaki, Georgia. After a lengthy amateur career which included winning the Bronze at the 2017 world championships and 2019 European Games, the 28-year-old moved to Miami Beach, Florida where he turned pro in August of 2020.

2021 has been a big year. Matched tough, he scored a unanimous decision victory over then-undefeated Jorge Argel. Add to that, two stoppage wins over respected veteran Juan Carlos Pena. The win over Argel accomplished two rewards. It earned Eranosyan the vacant WBA Continental Americas junior lightweight title and a number nine ranking by the WBA at 130 pounds.

He faces a Guerrero whose reputation is that of a puncher. The 23-year-old from Irving, Texas is trying to rebound from a majority decision loss to Abraham Montoya in his last outing in February of 2021. However, the Texan nicknamed “Pork Chop” says he’s newly dedicated and more ready for this bout than any other in his career.

HOLDING NOTHING BACK

Both men threw punches in bunches from the opening bell. A key shot for Eranosyan (10-0, 6 KOs) was the right uppercut. He found a home with that punch to the head and body.

The Florida-based fighter does an excellent job landing short, quick, accurate shots. He fights with aggression and intelligence, using that offensive repertoire to separate himself in the early rounds.

Guerrero (12-2, 9 KOs) was fighting back and even landed some nice left hooks to the body. Eranosyan was just outpunching him, leaving him with no answers in the first three rounds.

SWITCHING IT UP

Round four would see Eranosyan change tactics. Knowing his opponent would be desperate, he began to fight on the backfoot. Guerrero fell for the bait as he recklessly marched forward. Eranosyan took full advantage as he created angles for the jab and overhand rights. By the end of fifth, he was in complete control.

The later rounds saw Eranosyan begin to smile, showboat, and play to the crowd. Guerrero got dirty in the seventh and connected with a blatant headbutt. However, it didn’t matter as he was getting outboxed, outfought, and beaten up.

Otar Eranosyan won by an easy unanimous decision (79-73, 78-74 x2). This was an impressive win for the victor. He showed a complete arsenal plus won over the crowd in attendance. The “Pitbull” is a fighter to keep an eye on moving forward.
