Diego Chaves Drills Jose Miranda In Two Rounds

By Jake Donovan

Diego Chaves wiped out hapless challenger Jose Miranda in the second round of their interim welterweight title fight Saturday evening in Luna Park, Buenos Aires, Argentina.

The outcome was never in doubt, just a matter of when Chaves decided to end the bout. That moment came midway through the second round. A right hand froze Miranda in place, with a volley of power shots producing a knockdown in the round.

Miranda recovered but merely served as a punching bag from that moment until the end of the fight. Chaves scored with a right hand to the temple, pinning Miranda along the ropes and firing away until referee Roberto Ramirez stopped the contest.

The win advances Chaves to 22-0 (18KO), keeping his place as the top ranked contender to the welterweight belt currently in the possession of Paul Malignaggi. 

Miranda falls to .500, with a record 12-12-3 (8KO) that raises questions as to how he managed to find his way into an interim title fight to begin with.

UNDERCARD ACTION

Roberto Feliciano Bolonti picked up his 26th consecutive win with an 8th round stoppage of Jose Alberto Clavero. Action was slow through the first half, but the difference in power prevailed in a big way for Bolonti, who dropped and stopped Clavero in round eight.

Bolonti improves to 30-1 (19KO) with the win. In addition to a six-year win streak, Bolonti has now scored stoppages in his last five contests. 

Clavero falls to 36-9-1 (16KO), snapping a six fight win streak

Brian Carlos Castano (1-0, 1KOs) made his pro debut with stoppage victory of Alejandro Dominguez in the fourth (1-3).
