In a nine-round bout in Argentina, two local fighters fought for the vacant World Boxing Association regional belt in the Light Heavyweight division.

The winner, by unanimous decision of the judges, was Abraham “Turco” Buonarrigo, a young prospect who had to fight a difficult opponent of great experience, his fellow countryman Wenceslao Mansilla. This was the main fight of an event that took place on Saturday night in Villa Gobernador Galvez, province of Santa Fe, Argentina, with former world champion Juan Carlos Reveco as co-feature.

Buonarrigo won his first title, which places him in the race for greater challenges. This tough and experienced opponent; Mansilla, gave the young native of the province of Mendoza, Argentina, an opportunity to test himself, as Mansilla has a tough fighting style that puts his opponents in trouble because of his pressure, and his fights abroad have taught him a lot.

In addition, Mansilla is a former World Boxing Organization Latin Super Middleweight Champion.

With a good technique in the ring and with accurate punches, Buonarrigo managed to overcome Mansilla’s attacks, who gave him difficulties in the fifth round, but he resumed his attacks until he got the victory.

At 26 years old and with a total of nine wins, seven by way of KO, and only one loss, Abraham Buonarrigo moves forward with determination after winning the first belt of his career: the Fedebol Light Heavyweight belt of the World Boxing Association.
