Casino - Anacortes, Washington
Merced Nunez quickly dismantled
Danielle Lanford. Nunez, whose only loss is to Melissa
Hernandez, is a hard hitting junior lightweight who since that loss
has been much more aggressive than her opponents.
Before Lanford to reach the middle of the ring to answer the opening
bell, Nunez had landed a left jab and was loading her right. Lanford
tried to step back, but Nunez would have none of that as she stayed
within arm's length, popping Lanford's head back time after time.
The fight looked to be over less than a minute in to the round, when
Nunez pinned Lanford on the ropes and landed lefts and rights to
Lanford's chin. Lanford somehow snuck away from the barrage, but
only momentarily.Nunez caught up with Lanford on the far side of the
ring and after a few teeth jarring punches, Lanford realized there
would be no escape. She tried though. When Lanford covered her head,
Nunez threw punches to the body, and then Lanford dropped her elbows
and Nunez saw the target on the chin again. As the seconds
ticked down to end the opening round, Lanford's cornermen were
desperately waving a towel, asking that the carnage end. It did, at
1:59. Now Nunez finds herself in that position where, after two KO
wins, she may not get the 'easy' opponent. However, if she continues
to improve, it may not matter. - By Mike Blair - Boxingprospects.net
