Michael Finney (8-0-0, 7 KOs) vs Hector Orozco (4-10-9, 0 KOs)


Michael Finney UD6 Hector Orozco

In the third fight of the night Michael Finney, a good looking Irish kid from Alabama now fighting out of Pahrump, Nevada home to a couple of the more famous legal brothels in Nevada stepped into the ring with southpaw Hector Orozco of Minnesota. Finney who has a great left hook put Orozco "The Fighting Chihuahua" down on the canvas with it in round one. Rounds continued with Finney landing thudding left and right hook body shots along with well placed right uppercuts. It's not that Orozco didn't land punches. He did. He has fast hands but Finney's high tight guard blocked them. By round five Orozco was on his bicycle back peddling only intermittently throwing little flurries of punches. Then pow a right hand from Finney to Orozco's kisser sent Orozco flying back into the ropes and bouncing off like he was tethered to a bungee cord. It looked like Finney was going to knockout Orozco. In final round Orozco's nose was bleeding and he spent the entire round running backwards. Scores were 60-53, 59-54 and 59-54. Michael Finney wins by 6-round unanimous decision.
