At the Auditorio Siglo XXI in Puebla, Mexico, a massive sweeping right in the sixth round from Edgar Sosa blasted away Omar Soto of Puerto Rico.
 
It was Edgar's tenth and most impressive defense of his WBC Light Flyweight title to date. Edgar stalked elusive Omar, but it wasn't until the fourth, that he started cutting the ring off and landing some telling clouts to the body.
 
Towards the end of the fifth, a barrage to head and body had Soto retreating, but he survived until the bell. Only two letters differentiate their surnames but three letters, namely TKO spelled the difference. In the next round, Edgar trapped Omar in a corner. the measuring left narrowly missed, but a straight right poleaxed him in 2:30. The referee ‘mmediatly waved off any further hostilities.
 
Saul "Canelo" Alvarez obliterated Carlos Herrera of Argentina in less than a round, to retain his WBC Welterweight Youth Crown. Attired in strawberry red trunks and boots to match, Saul unleashed a peach of a right hook to crumple his opponent in 2:40 of the opening and closing round. Relaxed and sharp Canelo saw an opening and the unleashed a thunderbolt of a right, which needed no count.
 
Daniel Estrada retained his WBC Youth Lightweight title with a third round TKO. Opponent Carlos Ramon Mairena from Nicaragua bloodied his nose in the first minute of the opening round. But Daniel's speed and power prevailed. He put Mairena down with his trademark left hook in the second. And then one round later a well timed right hook put his opponent down, but much harder. Mairena bravely got up, but his cotton wool legs betrayed him and the referee was at hand to save him.
 
Carlos Zarate Jr. had an explosive debut as a lightweight. Dad's tutoring and conditioning worked a treat. He felled Puebla home town fighter Miguel Angel Tejeda, who's also a novice with a stunning short right hook to the jaw. It took just one 1:02. Tejeda was down for what seemed like ages and was worryingly carried out of the ring on a stretcher with a neck brace fitted.
 
The action which was explosive, was enjoyed by a large crowd in the Twenty first Century Stadium in Puebla, and although there was a massive rainstorm that following, nothing is likely to dampen Mexican Independence Day Celebrations. VIVA MEXICO!!!!

I guess the Judah fight is off the Mayweather Marquez undercard, eh? it was probably the weakest one on the card anyway, no big deal. yea, Id definitely go for putting Alvarez on the undercard. He didnt take any damage whatsoever in his last fight, and the guy is goign to be a beast in a few y...

[QUOTE=RJFO]I have to say, that referee called off the Soto/Sosa fight WAY too early. Soto was completely alert and could've continued fighting. He didn't even count. He should've counted, let Soto get to his feet and if he seemed dizzy or staggering after that THEN call off the fight. But he did...

Why not put el canelo on the undercard of the jmm fight. Better then fuken lock since it only took him 1 rd to ko his opponent. Oscar had talked about it
