The junior flyweight contender, who is the mandatory challenger to face IBF titleholder Ryoichi Taguchi, is also ranked number three by the WBO and number four by the WBC.

Felix Alvarado improves to 32-2, 28 KOs.

Twin brother Rene Alvarado (29-8, 20 KOs) knocked out Luis Gonzalez (23-12-1, 12 KOs) of Mexico at 2:24 of the opening round.
