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
  • Corley comes on strong with his 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.
