Jerry Belmontes preserved his unbeaten record with an eight-round unanimous decision win over Ramesis Gil in their Telefutura-televised bout Saturday from the Convention Center in Pharr, Texas.

Scores were 79-72, 78-73 and 77-74 for Belmontes, who was forced to suffer a 10-minute in-ring delay over an issue that required all of the Texas Boxing Commission staff on hand at ringside to man his corner.

Oscar Tovar (5-1-1, 3KO) was impressive in scoring a 2nd round stoppage of Gilbert Cancio in the televised opener. Tovar was patient in the first round before moving in for the kill in the second round. A left hook put Cancio (1-1, 0KO) down on the canvas and the referee waved it off at 1:50 of round two.

In a bout that aired via international feed, Odlanier Solis won a lethargic 12-round decision over Konstantin Airich. Scores were 118-110 and 119-109 (twice) for Solis, who fought for the first time since his failed title bid against Vitali Klitschko last March.

After 14 month off and three reconstructive operations on his right knee, this is something good for him. Now try to lose some weight, two more fights on this year will keep him on the right track. For the most needed 220-230lb, I do not know if he has the hart to get there, but all the best.

slow and lethargic makes sense, especially if that 267 1/2 listed weight by boxrec.com is accurate pretty heavy for Solis
