Arena TKT Box Tour, Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco, Mexico– Juan Carlos Sanchez Jr. (14-1-1, 7 KOs) made the first defense of his IBF super flyweight title against former IBF super flyweight titlist, Juan Alberto Rosas (36-7, 27 KOs) via one-sided unanimous decision.
Sanchez, a southpaw, was just too big, too athletic, and too good for the honest, earnest, but fairly pedestrian Rosas.
The defending champ dropped his challenger in the first round with a straight left hand and caused an ugly cut on the bridge of his nose via right uppercut, straight left hand combo in the sixth. The rest of the fight was pretty similar, with Rosas pursuing, but Sanchez boxing effectively in retreat.
At the end of the scheduled twelve rounder, the judges’ scorecards read: 118-109, 118-109, and 120-107. The Boxing Tribune scored the bout 119-108.
Palenque de la Feria, Celaya, Guanajuato, Mexico– Filipino, Denver Cuello (31-4-6, 21 KOs) came to Mexico and scored a second round knockout over Mexican, Ganigan Lopez (20-5, 14 KOs) in an eliminator for a shot at the WBC strawweight title.
Cuello is now in line for a title bout against WBC 105 lb. champ, Kazuto Ioka.
Monumental Plaza de Toros, Tepic, Nayarit, Mexico– Oscar Gonzalez (19-1, 13 KOs) stopped former world title challenger, Giovanni Caro (23-11-4, 18 KOs) in the ninth round of a scheduled twelve round junior featherweight bout.
Caro would suffer one knockdown in the second round and two in the ninth before the ref waved off the contest.
