Newly signed Nicaraguan prospect Roberto Arriaza (11-0, 10 KOs) continued his winning streak by knocking out veteran Aristides Quintero (20-6-1, 17 KOs) in the sixth round on Friday night from El Cifco Arena in El Salvador.
With the win, Arriaza takes home the previously vacant WBA Fedecentro 147-pound title. Arriaza, who recently signed a promotional deal with Thompson Boxing Promotions and Gary Shaw Productions, suffered a flash knock down in the first.
Unfazed by the uncharacteristic setback, Arriaza wore down the more experienced Quintero. In the sixth, Arriaza connected with a devastating body shot that sent Quintero crumbling to the canvas. The pinpoint body shot, secured Arriaza’s tenth knockout win.
“We are very impressed with Roberto’s performance,” said Gary Shaw, who was present at the fight. “Everyone in the arena heard that body shot in the sixth round. It was another excellent knockout win for him.”
