Adrian Hernandez racked up the fourth defense of his second reign as 108 lb. champ, stopping Puerto Rico's Janiel Rivera in three rounds Saturday evening in Huixquilucan, Mexico.
The bout was as competitive as any of the title fights during his current reign, which is to say that Hernandez barely broke a sweat. The win advances his record ot 29-2-1 (18KO), with his second title reign dating back to a revenge-fueled 6th round knockout of Kompayak Porpramook at home in Mexico in their Oct. '12 rematch.
