Jorge Paez Jr. racked up perhaps the biggest win of his career with a majority decision over former title challenger Charlie Jose Navarro in their 10-round welterweight bout Saturday evening in Mexicali, Mexico.

Scores were 94-94 even, 96-95 and 98-92 for Paez Jr., who overcame a slow start to rally back and take a hard-fought decision. The bout was slated to top a TV Azteca card, but instead aired outside Mexico airwaves on WBCBoxing.tv, the official stream website for the World Boxing Council (WBC), who made available a Silver welterweight title.

Action was slow in the early going, which worked greatly to Navarro's advantage. The visiting Venezuelan boxer capitalized on Paez Jr's desire to pose and feint, boxing his way to an early lead on the scorecards.

Paez picked up the pace in the second half of the fight, but not before hearing the boos rain down from his own countrymen in attendance. The second-generation boxer seemed to take exception to the crowd reaction, in return offering easily his most dominant round of the night to that point.

Things would get even better for Paez Jr., who rode the momentum of a sixth round knockdown all the way to the finish line. Navarro struggled to maintain pace down the stretch, as Paez Jr. effectively mixed banging and boxing.

The final two rounds saw Navarro go on the hunt and Paez employ a stick and move style that frustrated his opponent and to a degree the crowd as well. However, the final outcome would rally the paying patrons back on his side, though Navarro had a hard time coming to grips with the official decision.

Paez Jr. advances to 33-4-1 (19KO) with the win, his sixth straight. Navarro heads home with a two-fight win streak snapped as he falls to 22-6 (17KO).

The victory puts Paez Jr. in line for a possible welterweight shot sometime in 2013, though there exists a lot of real estate in front of him. Robert Guerrero was recently named full champion of the belt and will defend against Andre Berto later this year on Thanksgiving. 

Also shown on the webcast, Armando Robles scored an upset decision win over Humberto Gutierrez.
