Tijuana, Mexico - Moisés “Moi” Fuentes (15-1-0, 7 KO’s) retained his WBO 105-pound title with first round knockout of hometown hero Julio César “Gatito” Felix (17-4-0, 7 KO’s) at 2:16. The card took place at El foro de Tijuana and was televised by Azteca 7. After some big shots to the head and a hook to the body, Felix went down to the mat. He recovered, but then took more punishment to the head and body, falling back to the mat and this time he stayed there in pain for the full count of ten. Fuentes will now face former champion Ivan Calderon on August 4th.
After ten rounds of super bantamweight action, Daniel “Bad Boy” Rosas (14-0-1, 9 KO’s) was awarded a hard-fought ten round unanimous decision over Enrique “Duende” Bernache (19-4-0, 10 KO’s). The scores were 95-94, 95-94 and 97-95. Rosas controlled the action early but faded late and even got dropped in the eight round.Tags: Moises Fuentes
