Cebu City Waterfront Hotel & Casino, Philippines - Rey 'Boom Boom' Bautista (31-2, 23KOs) won a seven round technical decision over Heriberto 'Cuate' Ruiz (39-8) in a featherweight bout. Bautista had lost a one-sided eight round decision to Ruiz in 2008. The fight was stopped early in the seventh after the ringside doctor deemed that Bautista's numerous cuts were too dangerous to allow him to continue. The scores were 69-65, 68-65, 68-65 for Bautista. Bautista suffered several cuts from accidental head clashes. Not everyone was happy at ringside, with a few fans voicing their displeasure over the outcome.
