Alex Saucedo With Vicious Knockout of Vittori For WBO Latino Belt

Save Mart Arena, Fresno - Rising junior welterweight contender Alex Saucedo (26-0, 16 KOs), who is trained by veteran coach Abel Sanchez, picked up a vicious third round knockout of Gustavo David Vittori (20-3-1, 11 KOs) to capture the WBO Latino world title.

This is Saucedo's third fight of the year, with a knockout of Johnny Garcia in March and a decision win over Wilberth Lopez in May.

For Vittori, this was his first fight outside of the United States and he was unbeaten in his last eight fights.

The fight two rounds were fought on even terms, but Saucedo went to work in the third with heavy punches. He staggered Vittori and dropped him early in the round. After Vittori got up, a series of shots made him go down to a knee for the second knockdown.

After Vittori got up, Saucedo caught him cold with a huge shot right on the button. Vittori went down on his back and the referee quickly waved off the contest.

Hot junior welterweight prospect Maxim Dadashev (9-0, 8 KOs) needed only four rounds to put away the more experienced Clarence Booth (15-4, 8 KOs).

Dadashev looked strong from the start, rocking Booth really bad at the end of the second round. Dadashev continued to let his hands go in the third, putting the hurt on Booth.

In round four, Booth lost a point for spitting out the mouthpiece. When the action restarted, Dadashev started unloading big shots on Booth and had him in all sorts of trouble to force the referee's intervention to stop the fight.

Booth a veteran of the game, has suffered defeats to Cletus Seldin, Alex Saucedo and current IBF junior welterweight champion Sergey Lipinets.

Dadashev turned pro last April and this was his fifth fight of the year, with his last four wins coming inside the distance.

Dadashev was a top amateur with over 300 fights and won numerous medals in the unpaid ranks.
