It was all about the hands as the fast fists of Karim Guerfi trumped a wounded Alejandro Gonzalez Jr. in an upset win at Austin City Music Hall in Austin, Texas.

Although Gonzalez dropped Guerfi in Round 1 with a punishing liver shot to gain the early advantage, he hurt his right hand shortly thereafter, as he told his corner following the round.

From there, Guerfi, making his U.S. debut, didn’t just flip the script, the 28-year-old Frenchman rolled the thing up and bludgeoned Gonzalez into submission with it.

Displaying impressive hand speed and good footwork, Guerfi (23-3, 6 KOs) peppered Gonzalez (25-3-2, 15 KOs) with combos then sidestepped out of harm’s way.

After injuring his right hand, Gonzalez began loading up on his left, but Guerfi was able to successfully counter his opponent’s one-dimensional attack. Gonzalez continued to fire off his right intermittently, but his timing was off and his punches lacked zing.

Although Gonzalez still pressed forward gamely throughout the 10-round bout, he lacked the firepower to muster much of an attack as Guerfi pulled away to win a unanimous decision (97-92, 96-93, 95-94).
