Claudia Gutierrez Wins by Decision over Jeffries
Story and Photos
by Ricardo Ibarra
November 11, 2014


(NOV 11) Patrick Ortiz' Ringside Tickets Inc. returned to the Seven Feathers Casino in Canyonville, Oregon last Friday night with a seven bout fight card that featured an intriguing women's match-up.

In a six round Jr. featherweight bout, Sacramento's Claudia Gutierrez secured a unanimous decision win over former world champion Kelsie Jeffries. This marked the second time the two had faced each other. In their first meeting over a year ago, the two fought in a closely contested bout that ended in a majority draw. There would be no room for doubt in the rematch as Gutierrez dominated the fifty fight veteran.

Gutierrez (4-1-1 120.5 lbs.) wasted no time setting the pace early on and taking control of the fight. Using a stiff jab Gutierrez, who was clearly the stronger fighter, pushed her way in close and began to unload with heavy punches from the start. She quickly put Jeffries (41-11-2 4KOs 119 lbs.) on the defensive with a consistently aggressive attack. She maintained that pace for most of the fight, controlling the rounds with effective pressure and accurate one-twos.

Jeffries, who has always been a tough competitor, tried to get something going for herself throughout the fight, but she seemed to have no clear answer for the come-forward attack of her opponent. By the end of the bout she was bruised and bleeding from her right eye. All three judges scored the fight for Gutierrez with scores of 60-54, 59-55, and 59-55.
The victory was an impressive one for Gutierrez, who dominated a well regarded, highly skilled veteran in only her sixth professional fight.
Jeffries, meanwhile, appears to be at the end of a long and successful career as a prize fighter.
In the night's main event, Portland, Oregon's Ray Lampkin secured a unanimous win over Ricardo Maldonado and claimed the vacant Lightweight Northwest title. Lampkin shook off a years worth of rust in the first round to dominate the remainder of the fight with smart and effective boxing. All three judges scored the bout for Lampkin with scores of 50-45, 49-46, and 49-46.
In perhaps the most impressive performance of the night Virgil Green, of Vancouver, Washington, rebounded from a highly controversial decision loss last September to stop San Diego's Israel Arellano in the third round. Green dropped Arellano with a hard counter right to the chin in the third round and quickly followed up with a barrage that prompted the referee to step in and stop it at 1:22 of the round.
Andre Reyes, of Yakima, Washington, overcame a first round knockdown to secure a four round split decision over the tough Marcos Cardenas. Reyes was an aggressive buzzsaw that never stopped throwing punches. While his aggression was a bit wild in the first round and cost him a knockdown, he tempered it late in the fight to a more measured assault that appeared to win him the remaining three rounds. One judge scored the fight for Cardenas 38-37, while the other two judges both scored it 38-37 for Reyes.
In a light heavyweight match-up between two fighters making their pro debut's, Medford, Oregon's Rafael Valencia stopped Salem, Oregon's Abelino Morales in the third round. The two fighters fought on fairly even terms for the first two rounds, stepping in close and slugging away in a very entertaining fight. In the third, though, Valencia began to land at a more consistent rate. Half-way through the round a heavy overhand right buckled the knees of Morales. Valencia wasted no time, pressing forward and capitalizing on the opportunity, unloading with a vicious assault along the ropes. After a number of hard shots went unanswered, referee Joel Schoebe mercifully stepped in and waved it off, awarding Valencia the TKO at 1:39 of the third round.
Seattle, Washington's Zach Cooper (2-0-2 2KOs 147 lbs.) and Nigerian Olympian Rasheed Lawai (0-0-1 144 lbs.) fought to a four round majority draw in their welterweight bout. Cooper had a tough time early on figuring out the long and rangy style of Lawai, who was able to box effectively in the first two rounds with a precise right jab out of a southpaw stance, hard counter lefts, and quick lateral movement. In the third, though, Cooper appeared to kick it into gear and began to barrel his way in close, smothering his opponent's punches and landing hard shots to the head and body. He kept the momentum going in the fourth, outworking Lawai in close with a constant attack. At the end of the bout one judge scored for Lawai 39-37, with the other two scoring the bout 38-38.
In the evenings' opening match, Salem, Oregon's Josh Frias (1-0 128 lbs.) made his entrance into the professional fight game a successful one with a four round unanimous decision victory over fellow first time entrant Andres Martinez (0-1 128.5 lbs.), of Sacramento, California. Frias used a consistent attack to maintain pressure on his opponent, who seemed more comfortable when allowed to box. His busy work-rate and constant forward movement kept Martinez on the defensive for much of the fight. While Martinez was a game fighter and managed to have an effective run in the second, the majority of the action was controlled by Frias. The official judges' tallies read 40-35, 39-36, and 39-36 all for Frias.
It was another successful show for promoter Patrick Ortiz and the Seven Feathers Casino with some well-matched and exciting fights that left the near capacity crowd buzzing from another a great night at the fights.
