MGM Grand, Las Vegas - Juan Carlos Burgos (28-1, 19KOs) won a ten round majority decision over previously undefeated Luis Cruz (19-1, 15KOs). The scores were 95-95, 97-93 and 98-92 for Burgos, who captures the WBO Latino junior lightweight championship.

After a fairly even first round, Burgos opened up in the second and stunned Cruz. Burgos dominated the third round, landing combinations and shaking Cruz up on more than one occasion. Cruz began to pick up the pace in the fourth. He was taking the punches better and started boxing smart with calculated counters in the fifth. By the seventh, Cruz's right eye was swelling shut. The action was close in the late rounds, but Burgos had the slight edge due to his accurate punches and a good left hand that barely missed.

Cruz stepped up in competition and lost. He looks like if he does a few adjustments he might be able to compete. That was a good fight between two solid contenders

Where is PRBOXINGIDIOT??? What is this - his 15th wrong prediction in a row?? The idiot picks guys ONLY because they are PR. Talk about biased. I bet he would pick a PR to beat Mayweather even if the PR had a record of 10-8-3 just because he was a PR. When it comes to stupidity, PRBOXINGIDIOT has...

I made a bet on Burgos because even though both guys have promise I took a look at the height difference, the experience differential outside their country, and that they were both young and immediately thought "upset" Burgos should have this. Burgos pretty much schooled Cruz. I will say howev...
