Segura dropped Salguero in round four, but the game Salguero gave him all he could handle. The end came in round ten when Salguero couldn’t go anymore and just collapsed.

Former world champion Juan Alberto “Topo” Rosas (39-8, 27 KOs) scored a ninth round technical decision over previously unbeaten Alejandro “Cobrita” González Jr. (22-1-2, 14 KOs) in a bantamweight clash.

Scores were 78-74, 77-75 and 80-72 for Rosas.

In an upset, super featherweight Francisco Gabriel Pina (12-6-4, 5 KOs) won a six round unanimous decision over previously unbeaten Filipino Rogelio Jun Doliguez (18-1, 14 KOs). Pina dropped Doliguez in round one and went on to win 57-56, 59-55, 59-55.
