Alvarado wins WBA elimination over Morales in California

The Nicaraguan Rene ‘Gemelo’ Alvarado won the eliminator match for the 130 pound super featherweight title of the World Boxing Association, the pioneer organization, over Mexican native Carlos Morales in California.

Alvarado applied a lot of pressure to Morales in the main event at the Fantasy Springs Casino in Indio and in the end the judges rewarded him for his great performance by giving him cards in favor of 117-111, 116-112 and 115-113, thus moving him to a possible battle against the Puerto Rican Alberto Machado, current regular champion of the division.

The Nicaraguan dreams of making history in Nicaraguan boxing by achieving a world championship, which then would have him joining his brother Felix, already world champion, which would in turn make them the first pair of brothers to have won a world championship in the nation that was put on the map by the great Alexis Arguello.

With this result, Alvarado improved his professional record to 30-8 with 20 knockouts and also gave him his sixth consecutive victory after having fallen in March 2017 to Yuriorkis Gamboa. Morales was left with a record of 17-4-3 and 6 knockouts on the evening of the Golden Boy Promotions card.
