Heyman's Revenge

Cruiserweight "Mad" Max Heyman avenged a loss he suffered back in May to "Mad" Mike Alderete last night. The fight took place at the Hard Rock in Albuquerque, New Mexico, the hometown of both fighters.

Heyman cruised to victory, flooring Alderete in the third round with a body shot. Alderete was unable to answer the bell for the ninth, handing Heyman a eighth round TKO and redemption for his loss earlier in the year. Heyman grabbed his 14th knockout and improved to 24-11-4. Alderete fell to 7-5-2 with three KOs.

Heyman had not fought in nearly three years before gaining a win in January of this year. That led to his first fight with Alderete, which featured a nasty back-and-forth in the run up. After the opening bell rang, Heyman knocked Alderete down in the first, but broke his hand in the same round. His activity faded and Alderete won a split decision as a result.

Heyman was in good shape for the return bout and was the lightest he's been since his lay off ended. The convincing manner in which the 31-year old won the rematch puts his comeback back on track.
