Fort Worth, TX - Former 2008 U.S. Olympian Luis "The Latin Legend" Yanez (7-0-1) won a hard fought eight round split decision victory over Timur "Here Comes Trouble" Shailezov (16-7-1, 3KO) to capture the WBC U.S. Super Flyweight Championship at the Cendera Center in Fort Worth, Texas.  This was the first significant title for Yanez, who was captain of the Olympic team in Beijing and is now trying to re-energize his career.

Also on the card, light welterweight "Mighty Mo" Maurice Hooker (8-0-1, 6KO) knocked out Adam Ealoms (3-2-3, 1KO) in the second round.

Yanez has been a let down as a pro, and given that he showed good power in the amateurs I'm surprised that he's won only one fight by stoppage.

I'm a Yanez fan, but can he ever just win a UD (since a KO is out the question)? His fights are always too close for comfort.
