Rios tops Ramos in snoozer

By David Robinett at ringside

Off TV fight: Hometown fighter Randy Caballero, (18-0, 10 KOs), dispatched Luis Maldonado, (38-10-1, 29 KOs) 39 seconds into round four of a scheduled ten round junior featherweight bout. Caballero was in control early, scoring a first round knockdown, but Maldonado came alive in round three, outworking his younger foe. A quick flurry to the head dropped Maldonado again in round four. Maldonado rose on steady legs ready to fight but referee Ray Corona inexplicably waved the bout off, prematurely ending a fight that seemed to be heating up.

Rising featherweight star Ronny Rios (20-0, 9 KOs) won a tactical ten round unanimous decision over former WBA super bantamweight world champion Rico Ramos (21-2, 11 KOs) in a bout for the vacant NABF featherweight belt belt on Saturday night at the Fantasy Springs Resort Casino in Indio, California. Not a lot of action as Rios prevailed 100-90, 97-93, 96-94.

In a clash of unbeaten junior middleweights, Daquan Arnett (10-0, 6 KOs) scored a workmanlike eight round unanimous decision over Brandon Quarles (10-1-1, 2 KOs). Scores were 78-73, 77-74, 76-75. Quarles was deducted a point by referee Ray Corona for holding in round seven.
