Juan C. Sanchez Shocks Rodrigo Guerrero, Wins IBF Belt

By Rafael Soto

Los Mochis, SIN - Juan Carlos "southpaw" Sanchez shocked the local crowd by winning a twelve round unanimous decision over Rodrigo Guerrero to win the IBF's super flyweight title. Guerrero (17-4, 10 KOs) came out attacking the Sanchez (14-2-1, 7 KOs) from the start, but the challenger had an accurate left that connected often. The scores were 116-112, 119-109 and 115-113.

After some give and take rounds, Sanchez was more accurate and by the twelfth round, the face of Guerrero was busted up and badly swollen.

"I'm very happy, fulfilled my dream of becoming world champion. I knew that very few gave me a chance to win, but I believed in myself and thank God," Sanchez said.
