Giovany “Guerrero Azteca” Segura (20-1-1, 16 KOs) avenged his only loss and claimed the WBA interim mini-flyweight title with a fourth round TKO over reigning champ César Canchila (27-2, 21 KOs) on Saturday night at the Palenque del FEX in Mexicali. Segura dropped Canchila in round one and almost finished him. Canchila was on the deck again in round two. Segura continued to batter Canchila until the bout was stopped at the end of round four. The ending was confusing and controversial as Canchila’s cornerman entered the ring after what sounded like the bell ending the round, but referee Julio Cesar Alvarado still waved off the fight.
Super bantamweight Jocksan “Torito” Hernández (15-1, 9 KOs) outworked Jonathan “Diamante” Arias (13-4, 6 KOs), finally getting a tenth round stoppage.
Unbeaten super flyweight David “Tornado” Sánchez (8-0, 5 KOs) TKO’d Jesus “Rocky” Armenta (5-5, 2 KOs) at 1:25 of round three.
