WBC featherweight champion Jhonny Gonzalez (56-8, 48 KOs) retained his title with a tenth round technical decision over Clive Atwell (12-1-1, 7 KO) on Saturday night at the Convention Center in Acapulco, Guerrero, Mexico. The bout was halted due to a cut caused by a head clash over the left eye of Gonzalez. The bout was sent to the cards, where Gonzalez was ahead 99-89, 96-92 and 98-90. It was Gonzalez’ first defense since his spectacular KO win over Abner Mares.
