In a clash of former world champions, Fernando “Kochulito” Montiel (51-4-2, 38 KOs) scored a hard fought majority decision over Cristobal “Lacandon” Cruz (40-16-3, 24 KOs) on Saturday night in a super featherweight clash at the Palenque in Chiapas, Mexico. Montiel knocked down Cruz in rounds two and four, but that just inspired Cruz to fight even harder for the rest of the fight. Scores were 96-92, 97-91 and 94-94.

In a big upset, Colombian super featherweight Luis Flores (16-1, 14 KOs) knocked out previously unbeaten Miguel Berchelt (21-1, 18 KOs) in the first round.

Super welterweight Ivan “Terrible” Montero (13-0, 6 KOs) scored a one-sided six round unanimous decision over Ivan “Drago” Ramírez (5-3, 2 KOs).

Female flyweight Joselyn Arroyo (16-0, 7 KOs) scored a second round KO over Leidis Martinez (4-4, 3 KOs).
