Charlie Hoy sends another strong message.
Previously reported by 3kingsboxing undefeated flyweight Charlie Hoy (15-0, 10 KOs) was scheduled to fight Albert Gonzalez. However, there was a last minute change as Gonzalez pulled out and Hoy faced Donny Garcia (16-4, 5 KOs).
Hoy, the WBA #6 rated Fedelatin flyweight champion, wasn’t bothered by this change at all; turning in another spectacular knock out performance.
In the early rounds, the little-known Dominican fighter Garcia was successful using his height and reach advantage; keeping the champion out of punching range with the jab, good movement and feints.
Garcia was well aware of the punching power of the champion. Being the better boxer, this was a very good strategy. The question was whether he could continue to apply this for the remainder of the match.
Hoy started to find his rhythm in the third round, getting inside the jab while doing an excellent job of cutting off the ring. Once he was inside, he went to work.
The British boxer/puncher was able to turn it into a brawl, making the challenger uncomfortable. He strategically applied uppercuts and body shots to slow down the movement of his opponent.
Finally, in the fourth round, in landing a beautiful right hand shot to the body he leveled the Dominican challenger with a shot that he couldn’t recover from.
Charlie Hoy has KO’d all of his opposition in the Dominican Republic.
Donny Agustin Garcia Canario has campaigned at Super-Bantamweight and is a former Dominican Republic Super Bantamweight champion.
After the contest, Hoy made his intentions clear: challenging the WBA World Champion Artem Dalakian.
“Artem, you’re 17-0, I’m 15-0. We’re both warriors, we come to fight, so let’s get it on. I’ll go to Russia or anywhere you want. I’m ready for you.”
If this fight gets made, it will be a must-watch contest between two hard hitting punchers. This is a fight that won’t see the final bell. Let’s make it happen.
