Former world champion Fernando “Kochulito” Montiel (50-4-2, 37 KOs) scored a third round KO over overmatched Jaderes Padua (8-3-1, 5 KOs) on Saturday night. Time was 1:12. Montiel said he would retire if he lost to the trash-talking Filipino, but that was never an issue in the one-sided blowout.
In other action, former female champion Arely Mucino (18-12-1, 10 KOs) scored a second round KO over Olga Julio (14-13-1, 9 KOs) in a super bantamweight bout.
