Miguel Vazquez Decisions Cosme Rivera Over Ten in Culiacan

In a fast-paced and gritty fight, former IBF World Lightweight ruler Miguel “Titere” Vazquez captured the vacant World Boxing Federation (WBF) Mexican Welterweight crown on Friday night, April 13, at Parque Revulucion in Culiacan.

Vazquez (31), from Guadalajara, defeated veteran home-town favourite, and former WBF World Welterweight Champion, Cosme “Chino” Rivera by unanimous decision on a show promoted by Promociones Boxisticas Culiacan.

Both men had come to put on a show for the fans, and, while at times a little messy, the fight was entertaining with two warriors coming forward and trying to gain momentum. Vazquez was the quicker man with both hands and feet, but Rivera never stopped trying despite failing to land anything clean.

Vazquez had plenty of success with the right hand, and on a few occasions appeared to have shaken his foe. However, he didn't have the power to seriously hurt Rivera, who at no point looked close to going down, but after ten rounds there was no doubt that Vazquez had prevailed.

Judges Victoria Morales Jimenez, Jose de Jesus Arellano and Gerardo Zazueta Orosco scored the fight 99-91, 99-92 and 100-90. Referee in charge of the action was Juan Jose Ramirez.

Now on track to potentially challenge for the WBF World Welterweight title, Miguel Vazquez improved his impressive professional record to 40-6 (15). 41-year-old Rivera drops to 43-25-3 (29), in a career he started twenty-five years ago at the age of sixteen.

This was nothing but a trash fight Rivera is totally shot but for the little money the fighters received as well as for the very low ticket prices in Mexico, people have not much else to do on a Friday…
