Jr middleweight “Son of the Legend” Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (40-0-1, 30 KOs) destroyed Jason LeHoullier (22-2-1, 8 KOs) in less than a round on Saturday night at the El Palenque Del Recinto Ferial, Tepic, Mexico. Chavez dropped LeHoullier with a left hook and got the stoppage with his follow up barrage. Time was 2:43. A fight with John Duddy was mentioned for Chavez next.

UPDATE: A bout between WBO bantamweight champion Fernando Montiel (39-2-2, 29 KOs) and Alex Valdez (22-2-3, 15 KOs) has now been declared a technical draw. In a wild fight, Montiel dropped Valdez in round one, but Valdez came back furiously to floor Montiel in round two. Montiel was cut over the left eye seemingly by a punch in round one and that cut apparently later caused the bout to be stopped before the beginning of the fourth round. The fight was originally declared a technical draw, but then it was announced by a member of the local commission that the result was changed to a TKO for Valdez. Now WBO commissioner Luis Perez has officially decreed the bout a technical draw as the cut on Montiel’s left eyelid came before the fourth round. Montiel’s title was not on the line.

In a clash for the undisputed WBO mini flyweight championship, WBO champion Donnie Nietes, (24-1-3, 14 KOs) won a controversial twelve round split decision over interim champion Manuel Vargas (26-3-1, 11 KOs). Nietes did well early, but Vargas pushed Nietes hard the entire fight and was ahead 116-112 on one card, however Nietes prevailed 118-110, 116-110 on the other two cards.
