Welterweight contender Diego Chaves returned to the win column with a 3rd round stoppage of Juan Alberto Godoy in their welterweight bout Saturday evening in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
Chaves scored an official knockdown in round three (courtesy of a standing eight count), followed by a flurry to finish off Godoy.
The bout serves as his ring return following a seven-month hiatus. Chavez hadn't fought since suffering the lone loss of his career, a 10th round stoppage at the lethal hands of unbeaten American welterweight Keith Thurman last July in the United States.
