Before a hometown crowd in Guadalajara, super flyweight Juan Jose "Goofy" Montes won the vacant International title of the IBF (IBF), by securing a twelve round unanimous decision over Oscar "Ceviche" Ibarra. The lively crowd at the Olympic Coliseum was cheering on the action in the ring.
From the start of the fight, Montes took the lead and landed hard combinations on his opponent. Ibarra used his head in the fight, and he was penalized, but he cut Montes above both eyes. Montes was willing to fight Ibarra toe to toe in every round to light the crowd on fire and he followed that path until the final bell.
The final scores were 117-109, 116-111 and 114-113.
