Hector Tanajara Jr. vs Juan Carlos Burgos in San Antonio, Texas

Texas Review | Ralph Arvesen
Boxing match between Hector Tanajara Jr. and Juan Carlos Burgos at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas on January 11, 2020.

A great showing for the 23-year-old lightweight. He started out showing his boxing skills with the jab, and then the second half of the fight, he closed the distance and went on the inside, showing he could rip the body successfully and then go upstairs with a sharp right hand. Tanajara was playing chess while Burgos was playing checkers.

This was a good step up in competition for Tanajara as Burgos had only lost to Devin Haney, Mikey Garcia and Roman Martinez. He's being brought along correctly, and that should continue. Slow and steady wins the race, especially in boxing.

Burgos woke up a little bit in the sixth round and decided to make it a little bit of a fight and made Tanajara be a bit more active than maybe he liked. Tanajara putting on a clinic through five. The first four rounds, Tanajara controlled the fight with the jab and then in the fifth, he got brave and started going on the inside and forcing the issue. (Source: DAZN)
Hector Tanajara Jr. - The atmosphere here in San Antonio is amazing. It feels greats to be home; it is my first pro fight here and I felt like I gave my people a good fight. I started the fight boxing but finished it giving it my all. That’s the Mexican blood in me.
Hector Tanajara Jr.
Hailing from San Antonio, Texas, Hector "El Finito" Tanajara has been fighting as an amateur since 2007. During that time he has been recognized for his excellence in the ring with eight national championships. In 2012, the rising amateur star qualified to attend the Veles Cup in Kurgan, Russia and took the gold medal in his weight class. The victory in Russia qualified Tanajara to the 2016 USA Pre-Olympic trail competition.

Tanajara won the tournament in his weight class and was one of seven selected to go to the final stage for the 2016 Olympic trails. In this crucial time of his career, Tanajara decided to focus on a professional career and bypass the trials. The gamble paid off for the junior lightweight, when the eight-time national champion made his much-anticipated professional debut on August 6 on the popular LA Fight Club series as a newly signed Golden Boy Promotions fighter and won the fight via knockout.
