Fox Deportes Results: Zamora, Rivas Win Big In Mexico

By Jake Donovan

Jose Salgado remains on the hunt for another crack at a super flyweight title. The 24-year old is unbeaten in his past five starts following a valiant showing against Venezuela’s Liborio Solis in their Dec. 2011 interim title fight. Solis went on to win a 115 lb. belt, once again making the best of a road trip in outpointing Kohei Kono this past May in Japan.

Salgado has chosen to keep it close to home, having never fought outside of his native Mexico in more than six years as a pro. His regional 115 lb. title fight on Saturday evening in Apatzingan, Mexico comes against another traveling fighter, as he faces Japan’s Toyoto Shiraishi.

The bout serves as the show’s main event, but doesn’t appear to be slated for the Fox Deportes telecast.

UNDERCARD ACTION

Ibeth Zamora easily turned back the challenge of Maricela Quintero, picking up her third straight win with a 9th round stoppage in their junior flyweight title fight.

Zamora was in control every round, delivering a beating without having to worry about much coming back in return. Quintero braved the assault for as long as she could, but her face was battered and bloodied enough to where she was convinced by her corner to remain on her stool prior to the start of the ninth round.

The win is Zamora’s third straight as she advances to 18-5 (7KO). Quintero sees her record move to 11-4-1 (0KO) as suffers her second straight loss.

Yazmin Rivas continues to enjoy a career turnaround, extending her win streak with a 10-round whitewash of Japan’s Kimika Miyoshi.

Scores were 100-90 across the board for Rivas, who hasn’t lost since deciding to appear on a boxing reality show more than two years ago. The 25-year old has since won seven sanctioned bouts as she improves to 28-7 (9KO).

Miyoshi snaps a five-fight win streak as she falls to 8-6-1 (3KO).
