Medel Gets First Pro Win Against Crystal Morales

In her pro debut Lissette Medel edged Crystal Morales in a four round featherweight showdown at Stevens Steakhouse on Friday.
More than 1,500 saw Medel adjust from an amateur style to pro during the fight with Morales who continually pounded left hooks in the first two rounds. Then came the turn around.

“I was really nervous because it was my first pro fight,” said Medel, an amateur champion who began boxing six years ago. “But after the first two rounds I was ready to go.”

Oxnard’s Morales, with four pro bouts experience and some amateur
background, jumped out ahead as soon as the bell rang to start the fight. Methodically walking down Medel, the taller Morales fired some stiff jabs and found the left hook pretty effective against her opponent who was moving backward.

The second round saw Medel firing lead right hands against the aggressive Oxnard fighter. Some stiff jabs by Morales kept her opponent moving in reverse.

“She was intimidated by me,” said Morales (2-3-1) who was cheered on by Mia St. John sitting nearby. “I had her moving backward the whole fight.”

It was during the third round that Medel, who was a couple of inches shorter than Morales, began firing resounding punches to the body that echoed under the tent pitched on the restaurant parking lot. During every exchange the Maywood fighter pinpointed a right or left to the ribs. Though Morales seemed unaffected, the sound of the blows surely caught the attention of the three judges.

“I won the fight because I was landing the harder punches,” said Medel who was mobbed by the hundreds of Maywood fans who drove a couple of miles north to the City of Commerce. “I was faster too.”
The judges scored the fight 38-38, 40-36, 39-37 for a majority decision in favor of Medel.

“I felt I did enough to win a draw,” said Morales after the fight. “She was the one backing up, not me.”

Referee Vince Delgado, who had just complained about the male bout that preceded Morales-Medel, couldn’t believe the skill level of both female fighters.

“Those girls really could fight,” Delgado said. “They were much more skilled than the two guys before them.”

Though Morales lost, she shrugged it off to the boisterous home town crowd.  “It was all politics, I understand that,” she said. “She had a lot of people rooting for her.”
