In an huge upset, Juan Carlos Martinez (19-14-1, 6 KOs) scored a hard fought ten round split decksion over WBA #14 super featherweight Alejandro Perez (19-4-1, 13 KOs) on Saturday night at Texas Station Gambling Hall and Hotel in Las Vegas. Scores were 96-93, 96-93 Martinez, 96-93 for Perez. It was an entertaining two-way slugfest with both fighters having their moments. Perez was deducted a point for a low blow in round ten.

The loss was a costly one for Perez, who had been expected to land a May title shot against WBA world featherweight champion Nicholas Walters in Macao, China.

Unbeaten 2012 Olympian jr welterweight Jose Ramirez (9-0, 7 KOs) scored an impressive second round TKO over Boyd Henley (10-4-1, 9 KOs). Ramirez showed explosive offense prompting referee Robert Byrd to step in even though the game Henley was still fighting back. Time was 2:32. “Henley was strong and had a lot of heart,” said Ramirez after the fight. “Even though I hurt him he kept moving forward was good for me. he was the best fighter I fought. I wanted to go more than one round and this went two. he was a tough guy but I got the win.”
