Ulises Lara Stops Omar Soto In Two Rounds

By Jake Donovan

Sub .500 journeyman Ulises Lara pulled off a shocking 2nd round knockout of former title challenger Omar Soto in their Telemundo-televised main event Friday evening in Mexico City, Mexico.

A pair of knockdowns was enough to force Soto to quit, remaining on a knee as the referee waved off the contest following the second knockdown.

The official time was 2:20 of round two.

Pedro Melo outworked Gabriel Aguillon over six rounds in a spirited bantamweight battle. Scores were 59-55 and 58-56 (twice) for Melo (10-5-1, 2KO), who has won two fights in a row for the first time in more than two years. Aguillon (7-5-1, 4KO) is winless in his last five contests.

Jose Zuniga enjoyed a successful pro debut with a split decision win over Juan Pablo Arias (0-3-1, 0KO). Scores were 39-37 across the board, one judge for Arias while the other two going to Zuniga (1-0, 0KO).
