Alberto Machado: I Felt Weak in There, I Think I Need To Move Up

Andrew Cancio (20-4-2, 15 KOs) of Blythe, Calif. scored an upset victory over Alberto Machado (21-1, 17 KOs) of San Juan, Puerto Rico in front of a sold-out crowd of hometown fans at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino to become the new WBA super featherweight world champion.

Cancio, who himself was dropped in the first round, scored three knockdowns over Machado, forcing the fight to be stopped at 2:16 of the fourth round. The fight was streamed live on DAZN.

Machado appeared to be flat from the opening round, and even his knockdown of Cancio was not damaging.

While the Puerto Rican boxer would like a rematch, he appears to have drained his body to make the division limit and needs to move up in weight. 
 
"I felt weak in there," said Machado. "The rematch would be nice, but I think I have to move up to 135 pounds. We will see."
 
Also on the card, Rey Vargas (33-0, 22 KOs) of Mexico City, Mexico defeated Franklin Manzanilla (18-5, 17 KOs) of Caracas, Venezuela via unanimous decision to retain his WBC Super Bantamweight World Title. Vargas won with three scores of 117-108.

Adrian Estrella (29-3, 24 KOs) of Nuevo Leon, Mexico defeated Oscar Duarte (15-1-1, 10 KOs) of Parral, Mexico via majority decision for the vacant WBC Continental Americas Lightweight Title in a ten-round fight. Two judges scored the fight 96-94 and 98-92 in favor of Estrella, while one judge scored it 96-94 in favor of Duarte.
 
Tureano Johnson (20-2-1, 14 KOs) of Nassau, Bahamas and Fernando Castaneda (26-13-1, 17 KOs) of Aguascaliente, Mexico fought to a split draw in an eight-round middleweight fight.

This guy would have been food for Loma at 130...all his weaknesses play right into Loma's hand: Fast combinations, head- body attack, pressuring on the inside from angles, fast pace.

He looked off, but it's hard to say how much of it was weight making related vs Cancio related.
