2012-01-21 : DeMarcus Corley 137 lbs beat Gabriel Bracero 140 lbs by UD in round 10 of 10

Bracero versus Corley NABF Light Welterweight Title Bout

  • Former world light welterweight champion 'Chop-Chop' Corley, 37, 28-19-1 with 22 KOs, deals 'Tito' Bracero his first loss in 19 professional bouts
  • Chop-Chop's overhand left hand lead scoring at will on Bracero in the first round, with a confused Tito missing nearly everything he threw
  • Chop-Chop's overhand left hand lead cuts Bracero's right eye in the second, and later in the round a right hook to chin dropped Bracero-who barely beats the count
  • Southpaw Corley came on strong with his left jab, and hitting with power, measuring Bracero knocking down Bracero again in rounds three and five and doing best in rounds one through six
  • Bracero came back and did best with sharp jabs in rounds seven through ten, fighting even and dropping Corley in round eight as Corley faded
  • If 'Tito' Bracero had turned only one more point on the scorecards, the bout would have been a ten round majority draw. Despite that, the bout was clearly not close.
  • COrley won the NABF belt which Bracero had won against Daniel Sostre when it was vacant in October 2011.
