Everything that was not seen from the fight that Maravilla Martínez waited for his whole life and did not last a round


He boxed for the first time at Luna Park but the fight lasted a breath: he knocked out the Colombian Tehran before the minute and a half.

The bell was heard,

Sergio Martínez


Jhon Teherán

against the ropes, managed to wink at the ring side in a grab and then knocked him out.



The fight in the place that


dreamed of,

Luna Park

, did not last a round.

It would be necessary to review the video of just over a minute to discover an attempt by the Colombian.

"The coup existed"

he says, before being asked by


, one of the judges who had the fight, the legendary

Hugo Vainesman


The evening had everything that others have and also their differences.

Nobody paid the ticket, because they did not go on sale: the capacity was completed with invitations.

The fundamental excuse was the

avant premiere



Glory and Death”

, a series that Star Plus premieres on March 24, but that brought forward its first chapter for those who attended Luna Park.

There was an interesting setting for the preview of the first episode, with the actor who plays Oscar Bonavena in the biographical series,

Jerónimo Bosia

, playing the role live in the ring and melting images on the giant screen.

After the first chapter, the spectators who were not "from the box", but rather actors, actresses and producers from the world of entertainment, left Luna Park and

there the evening was like any other.

The public that watches boxing is silent.

You can hear the blows on the ring side or the chicken coop.

There is someone who yells, someone who gives advice that he thinks is appropriate, but it is incredible how silence gives way to those contractions of the boxers when they take a punch, something similar to that bellow of tennis players when they make an effort in a blow.

At least in Luna Park it is possible to leave the seat to go to the bathroom, return and find it together with the belongings that marked the territory in physiological absence.

Perhaps it responds to the logic of the show itself: two people who exchange blows but after the last round go into hugs.

The three background fights were attractive.

In the bantamweight category, Cuban rookie

Damián Arce


Sebastián Castillo

(7-2-1) on points in a unanimous decision.


Brian Arregui

(8-2-0, 1 KO) defeated

Matías Galucci

(8-3-0) by TKO in the sixth round and


La Maquinita


(15-2-0, 8 KOs.) prevailed over

Laureano Dinamita Sciuto

(11-1-0, 7 KOs.) and finished with his undefeated.

At that point, they arrived punctually at the appointed time, they had been three hours between fights and the episode of the series.

The wait for Maravilla and its staging with a playback by


, an exponent of urban music, on an allegorical clip about the boxer, fueled the climate.

What all those present expected was about to happen

and that is why the public lit up.

Before retirement or since his return, Martínez enjoys a charisma that affects people,

whether or not they pay the ticket






Eva Gatica


Gabriel Rolón

and famous television personalities watched the evening with special energy, equal to or more effusive than the number of boxers who also gathered.

Hymns through and with the unique locution -an affected Latin dubbing accent- with which each fight was presented,

Chino Maidana

-in his role as promoter- settled down to see how the night, like the packages, closed with a bow .

Seconds out and bell for the first of the 10 rounds agreed for the first fight in Argentina by Maravilla since his return to activity.

The first hand that Tehran entered, which was already on the ropes, was enough to end the expectation.

Maravilla measured him first with a right jab and with a subtle left foot, he left him on the ground.

In Luna Park for the only time he had a reaction from the public in unison.

An orgasmic release while Martínez celebrated and his rival could not get up.

Everything was applause, even if he did not complete the first round and the remaining nine were filed.

About 30 years ago, due to a fleeting show by

Jerry Lee Lewis,

the public considered burning the Great Rex to ashes.

But, it has been said, the boxer is a peaceful spectator and also very orderly to evacuate the stadium and then leave: in a handful of minutes, Corrientes and Bouchard no longer had even light.

What do the rock attendants stay doing when leaving the same place?

"I won't stop until the world title"

Knock out

completed, Maravilla made it clear what his return is about.

“I tell you one thing: don't make you believe that 48 years is a lot: they can't make you believe that you finished, because I didn't finish.

From here until the World Cup, I don't stop, the fucking "was the first thing he said, after they officially declared the fight won, the sixth since his return: four in Spain, one in the United States and the one in Tuesday.

“Thanks to that madness (that I have), bless it, I am above the ring and training with boys of 18 or 20 years of equal to equal.

I want to train strong and hard because I want to fight for the World Cup.

Life is to challenge big things.

I don't like to say: tomorrow I'm going to get up to feed the pigeons.

No, let me get up to take the reins, ”she said, still naked for the cameras that broadcast the fight.

"Half an hour ago I was not the same person I am now, much less after a


in the first round," Maravilla closed the same night that they presented the Bonavena series and in which he seems to script his own fiction.
