Although Gonzalez dropped Guerfi in Round 1 with a punishing liver shot to gain the early advantage, he hurt his right hand shortly thereafter, as he told his corner following the round.
From there, Guerfi, making his U.S. debut, didn’t just flip the script, the 28-year-old Frenchman rolled the thing up and bludgeoned Gonzalez into submission with it.
Displaying impressive hand speed and good footwork, Guerfi (23-3, 6 KOs) peppered Gonzalez (25-3-2, 15 KOs) with combos then sidestepped out of harm’s way.
After injuring his right hand, Gonzalez began loading up on his left, but Guerfi was able to successfully counter his opponent’s one-dimensional attack. Gonzalez continued to fire off his right intermittently, but his timing was off and his punches lacked zing.
Although Gonzalez still pressed forward gamely throughout the 10-round bout, he lacked the firepower to muster much of an attack as Guerfi pulled away to win a unanimous decision (97-92, 96-93, 95-94).
- –Alejandro Gonzalez Jr. dropped Karim Guerfi with a devastating liver shot in Round 1, although he also hurt his right hand shortly thereafter.
- –With his opponent wounded, Guerfi took advantage, picking him apart with quick, short counterpunches and then stepping around Gonzalez to elude his attack.

The Ghana native was stopped by Abraham Lopez in May after being dropped by a wicked body shot in Round 5. Rising 126-pound prospect Miguel Flores took even less time to deliver the same fate to Tetteh, scoring a second-round knockout at Austin City Music Hall in Austin, Texas.
Flores (18-0, 9 KOs) displayed a nice range of punches in Round 1, doubling up his jab, hammering Tetteh (23-5-1, 20 KOs) to the body with left hooks and landing right uppercuts.
At the beginning of Round 2, Tetteh got on his bike in an attempt to elude Flores’ charge. It was to no avail.
Flores caught him with a right hand that set up a left hook to Tetteh’s midsection that sent him to the canvas. Referee Gregorio Alvarez counted out Tetteh at 1:10 of the round for Flores’ ninth career knockout.
