By Jake Donovan

Jhonny Gonzalez made the first successful defense of his second reign as featherweight tiltist with a 10-round technical decision win over previously unbeaten Clive Atwell.

The bout was forced to go to the scorecards with just three seconds remaining in round ten of their title fight Saturday evening in Acapulco, Mexico.

Atwell suffers his first loss, falling to 12-1-1 (7KO) in what was his first time fighting for a title and outside of his native Guyana.

Gonzalez (56-8, 47KO) was previously slated to face Abner Mares in a rematch to his shocking 1st round knockout win over the then-unbeaten three-division champ last August. The rescheduling and eventual cancellation of their planned sequel left Gonzalez out of the ring for nine months prior to Saturday's title fight.

His winning effort over Mares last year earned Gonzalez the distinction of becoming a three-time champ, including two separate reigns at featherweight. The 32-year old also previously served as a bantamweight titlist.

With his first defense out of the way, Gonzalez and his team plan to proceed with negotiations for an all-Mexico Civil War with former four-division champ Jorge Arce later this year.

I've been watching fights from Mexico lately, free, and notice that they stop fights really quick. There is no second chance, the first sign of domination, too much blood anywhere, quit punching and they stop it. It's a good stoppage, most of the time, but they cut some guys short. They get no c...

[QUOTE=Ringlife]I watched the first couple of rounds but the Showtime card was about to start. I thought Atwell was winning the first couple of rounds oh well. Bring on Arce vs Gonzalez next.[/QUOTE] I thought the fight was alot closer than all of the other posters are making it out to be. And...

Gonzalez and Arce are both exciting but Arce probably should have retired already.
