Photos: Oscar Mojica Stuns, Breaks Nose of Paddy Barnes

New York City, New York - Veteran Oscar Mojica (12-5-1, 1 KOs) scored, by far, the biggest win of his career, defeating three-time Irish Olympian Paddy Barnes (5-2, 1 KO) via six-round split decision in a bantamweight bout. (photos by Michael Williams).

Mojica knocked Barnes to the canvas with a body shot in the second round, but the referee did not rule it a knockdown. Barnes, who suffered a broken nose in the opening round, never could get on track.

Josue "The Prodigy" Vargas (13-1, 8 KOs) extended his winning streak to seven with an eight-round unanimous decision over the durable Adriano Ramirez (10-3, 6 KOs) in an eight-round super lightweight fight. Vargas, who hails from the Bronx, won via shutout on all three judges' cards.
