Illusions Theater, San Antonio, Texas - It was repeat for Bryan Vera (22-6, 12KOs), who won a twelve round majority decision over former champion Sergio Mora (23-3-2, 7KOs) to capture the vacant NABO middleweight title. The scores were 118-110, 117-111 for Vera and 114-114. Last February, Vera won a ten round split decision over Mora.
There were fireworks as Mora fought Vera's kind of fight by trading punches, fighting with his back against the ropes and allowing Vera to make it brawl. Vera landed the harder punches and pushed the majority of the action.
In the televised co-feature, Antonio Escalante (27-4, 19 KOs) stopped Leonilo Miranda (36-5, 25 KOs) in the second round of a featherweight bout.
