Jose Pedraza, Rey Ojeda, Kenny Galarza Win Bouts

By Elisinio Castillo

San Juan, Puerto Rico - Junior lightweight contender Jose "Sniper" Pedraza won a dominating twelve round unanimous decision to capture the vacant International Boxing Organization (IBO) championship with a solid win over Alberto Garza at the Auditorio Juan Pachín Vicéns. Pedraza, 24, got scores of 119-109, 118-110 and 117-111. Pedraza suffered a cut on his forehead in the second round from an accidental headbutt. He raises his record to 16-0 and 10 knockouts.

Pedraza becomes the only major titleholder from Puerto Rico, after the remaining Puerto Rican champions were defeated last year.

While in the co-feature, Rey 'The Maetro' Ojeda scored a third round knockout over Fernando Torres in a rematch to set the record straight, in a fight for the International lightweight title of the International Boxing Organization. Ojeda improves to 13-0 with eight knockouts, while Torres saw his record fall to 18-5-1 and 10 KOs.

In other results, Kenny Galarza (16-2, 15 KO's) won by TKO in the second over Miguel Mungia (29-31-1, 25 KO's), while Jesus Rojas (19-1-1 and 14 KO's ) grabbed a first round knockout over Juan Beltran (28-24-3, 18 KO's).
