In a night of knockdowns and stoppages on ShoBox: The New Generation, Guillermo Rigondeaux won a world title in only his ninth professional fight by knocking out the defending World Boxing Association (WBA) super bantamweight champion Rico Ramos at 1:29 of the sixth round. The co-feature resulted in a multiple knockdown thriller live on SHOWTIME® before Joel Diaz Jr. ended the contest by scoring a TKO over Guy Robb at 2:20 of round seven. In the opening bout of the night, super flyweight Matthew Villanueva TKOed Mike Ruiz Jr. at 1:04 in the seventh round from Pearl Theatre at Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, Nev.

It was incredibly f*cking stupid to put Ramos in vs Rigondeaux. They should have at least let the poor kid have one or two easy fights to make money and then fight Rigo. Idiots.

Diaz Jr. and Robb should get bonus pay for that fight. That was one hell of a fight. That's something I wish boxing would follow UFC on - winner gets bonus, KO of the night gets bonus, and fight of the night gets bonus.
