Vicente Luque

Tonight’s bout between Vicente Luque and Mike Perry was labeled as a must-see fight, and the welterweights delivered on that promise.

Round one

Perry planted a hard right not long into the fight. Both welterweights mixed in kicks during the fight’s opening moments. Luque stuck a nice left that marked up Perry’s left eye, but the latter returned fire. Luque scored with a knee to the chin of Perry, but the latter ate it well. As the final minute of the round began, Perry was cut by both of his eyes. Perry flurried in with a big series of punches, but Luque defended well and returned fire.

Round two

Luque stayed busy with kicks to begin round two, and Perry clinched up. The welterweights continued to wing big shots, and Perry scored with a nice uppercut. They continued to trade shots in the pocket, and Luque’s face was starting to wear it as well. In the final moments of the frame the slugfest continued.

Round three

Luque and Perry stayed busy with kicks and punches in round three, and the latter shot in a couple of minutes in, but was unable to get the takedown. Not long after, Perry scored with a TD but found himself defending a guillotine choke as blood flowed out of his head. Eventually, a blood-soaked Perry worked his head out, and he finished the fight on top. Great fight. Perry’s nose is completely smashed from a flying knee he took in the bout. Nasty.

Luque was awarded the thrilling fight by two judges and as a result, his winning streak now stands at six.
