Fernando Montiel Destroys Ciso Morales in One Round

By Mark Vester

At the Las Vegas Hilton in Las Vegas, Fernando Montiel (40-2-2, 30KOs) retained his WBO bantamweight title with a first round knockout of previously undefeated Ciso Morales (14-1, 8KOs). After both fighters were picking their spots, in the final moments of the round, Montiel landed a heavy combination to the body that sent Morales down for the full count. He was still down after the count of ten was over.

Now Montiel has to face his rival, Eric Morel who earlier won the interim-title with a twelve round split decision over Gerry Penalosa.

Morales is not a legitimate 118lbs fighter, he's too drained in losing 12 lbs in 6 days. It's way too much....... Montiel should have faced Micheal Domingo....but instead chose the young and green Morales to defend the title

Morales was not ready for that belt yet... damn... Its like the Bautista - de leon bout... I hope this won't happen to Sonsona...

Montiel needs to aim for a unification, and with a Hasegawa fight looking unlikely, that leaves Anselmo Moreno. A Montiel/Moreno scrap would be awesome.
