WBC light flyweight Adrian “Confesor” Hernandez (27-2-1, 16 KOs) pounded out a hard fought and entertaining twelve round unanimous decision over the very game Yader Cardoza (15-5, 5 KOs) on Saturday night at the Auditorio Agustin Millan in Toluca, Mexico. Scores were 116-112, 118-110 and 116-112. Hernandez’ left eye was swollen shut at the end.

In the co-feature, former female flyweight champion Ava Knight (11-1-3, 5 KOs) scored a one-sided ten round unanimous decision over Linda “Muñeca” Soto (5-2, 3 KOs).
