Pepsi Coliseum, Quebec City - Junior welterweight contender Pier Olivier Cote (18-0, 12KOs) drilled Jorge Teron (25-3-1, 17KOs) in two rounds to capture the vacant IBF Inter-Continental title.
In blazing start, Cote stunned Teron twice in the first round, but near the end he left himself open to a counter and nearly got dropped when Teron got him on the chin. At the start of the second, Cote dropped Teron hard with a huge accurate bomb on the chin. A moment later, Cote decked Teron with a massive hook that sent him down and out on his back.
