David Carmona cruised to a unanimous decision win over previously unbeaten prospect Antonio Tostado in their 10-round main event Friday evening in Polanco, Mexico.
Scores were 98-91 and 97-92 (twice).
Carmona set the tone early, scoring a 2nd round knockdown and smoothly boxing the rest of the contest. Tostado never wilted, but also at no point managed to ever take the lead or reverse the tide.
The jab was key for Carmona, who was coming off of a technical draw in his pre-empted rematch with Danny Flores this past July. Returning less than three months later, the rising - and improving - super flyweight prospect showed why he has become a series and venue favorite, smartly boxing but while providing an entertaining performance.
The win extends Carmona's unbeaten streak to 14 straight as he advances to 16-1-4 (8KO). Tostado suffers his first pro loss as he falls to 11-1 (5KO).
