In a clash for the vacant WBC interim super featherweight title, WBC #3 Humberto “Betillo” Gutiérrez (26-1-1, 19 KOs) won a hard fought twelve round majority decision over #1 rated Sergey Gulyakevitch (26-2, 12 KOs) on Saturday night at the Municipal Auditorium in Cabo San Lucas, Baja California Sur, Mexico. It was a good back-and-forth scrap with the heavier handed Gutiérrez winning by scores of 113-113, 115-111, 116-110 for Gutiérrez. Gulyakevitch was deducted a point round four for twice spitting out his mouthpiece. Gutiérrez is now in line to face WBC 130lb champion Humberto Soto, although Soto may move up to challenge WBC lightweight champion Edwin Valero on the November 14 Pacquiao-Cotto card.

It was the third time they have fought with the results being a majority decision and split decision for “Rayito” and a draw.
