Wilfredo Vazquez Jr defeated Marvin Sonsona for the WBO super bantamweight title. Sonsona was dropped by a body shot in the fourth round and was unable to beat the count. The KO improved Vazquez Jr’s record to 18-0-1 (15 KOs) and gave the 25 year-old his first world title.
Controversy surrounded the co-main event as the bout between Rodel Mayol and Omar Nino for the WBC light flyweight title was ruled a technical draw. Nino hit Mayol with a low blow in the third round. Before referee Vic Drakulich could intervene, Nino followed with a left hook that turned Mayol’s lights off. Mayol was out cold and the fight was ruled a technical draw.
