Rios, Diaz victorious in Indio

Unbeaten jr lightweight Ronny Rios (19-0, 9 KO’s) overcame a strong early effort by David Rodela (16-7-3, 7 KOs) to score a ninth round TKO on Saturday night at the Fantasy Springs Casino in Indio, California. A barrage of unanswered punches prompted referee Jerry Cantu to wave it off at 1:14.

Two-time lightweight champion Julio “The Kidd” Diaz (39-7, 28 KOs) scored a fifth round KO over Henry Aurad (14-5-1, 11 KOs). Diaz dropped Aurad in round three and again in round five. Time was :54. Now fighting as a welterweight, it was Diaz’ first fight in over a year.

From the beginning, we have always kept Fightnews free to our readers and relied on advertiser support. Anyway, the Miami Herald, The Guardian, and Wikipedia among others have been using the “crowdfunding” revenue model, so we thought we’d test it too.
