Kissimmee, Florida – It was an All-star Boxing card and  in front of a sold out crowd at the Kissimmee Civic Center Featherweight Orlando “EL Fenomeno” Cruz (22-4-1, 11 KO’s) from San Juan, Pueto Rico defeated Gabino “Flash” Cota (18-5-1, 16 KO’s) from Navajoa,Sonora, Mexico. It was an unanimous decision and with the victory Cruz won the vacant (WBO) NABO Featherweight title.  Cruz slowly walked down Cota early on with a higher level of boxing skill not committing to the slower Cota bait.   It was a war in the center of the ring, Cruz established himself with the quicker hands and feet. His offense had higher success scoring points and frustrating Cota who made a effort with picking  it up late in the fight by attacking Cruz in the corner. Cruz jumped in and out throwing hooks and upper cuts keeping Cota’s fight effort behind all night. The three judges scores 97-93,96-94,99-91 all for Cruz.
