By Rafael Soto
All it took was one round for Moises Fuentes to capture the WBO's interim junior flyweight world title, as he battered the brave Colombian Luis de la Rosa before eight thousand people at the Palenque de la Feria in Tapachula , Chiapas. The Zanfer promoted card aired on Azteca 7. Fuentes became the second Mexican in boxing history to win titles at 105 and 108. Fuentes came out swinging in the first round, hurt De la Rosa with a few early shot and then unleashed a heavy barrage against the ropes to force the referee's intervention. Fuentes improved his record to 18 wins with 9 knockouts, one loss and one draw, while Luis de la Rosa scored his third setback in exchange for 22 wins, with 12 before the limit and a draw.
In the featherweight co-feature, former world champion Tomas "Gusano" Rojas Jalisco beat Enrique " Duende" Bernache, by unanimous decision in ten rounds with scores of 95-93 , 96-92 and 95-93. Rojas improved to 41 wins with 27 knockouts, 14 losses and one draw while Bernache left with 20 wins, with 11 by KO and six setbacks.
