Juan Carlos “Zurdito” Sanchez (15-1-1, 8 KOs), who lost his IBF super flyweight title on the scale , scored a twelve round unanimous decision over previously undefeated Roberto Domingo Sosa (24-0, 14 KOs) on Saturday night at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. The much taller Sanchez used his reach to keep Sosa at bay while landing his own shots. A final round knockdown scored by Sanchez punctuated his win. Scores were 117-110, 117-110, 116-111.

Had Sosa won the fight he would have been named IBF champion, however with Sanchez’ win the belt remains vacant.

Hot unbeaten super bantamweight prospect Jesse Magdaleno (15-0, 11 KOs) dropped Henry Maldonado (16-2, 11 KOs) twice in round two and finished him in round four.

Unbeaten heavyweight contender Andy Ruiz (19-0, 12 KOs) knocked out Carl Davis (16-6, 12 KOs) in the first round.

Unbeaten lightweight Jose Felix (24-0-1, 18 KOs) stopped Fernando Garcia (27-4-2, 18 KOs) in the first round.

Unbeaten featherweight Gabino Saenz (10-0-1, 7 KOs) won a six round unanimous decision over Giorgi Mtchedishvili (8-6-1, 1 KOs). Scores were 60-54, 59-55 and 58-56.

Unbeaten welterweight Michael Finney moved to 12-0, 10 KOs with a workmanlike TKO won over Raul Tovar (10-7-1, 4 KOs), dropping Tovar three times forcing referee Russell Mora to call a halt at 2:52 of the sixth round.

Welterweight prospect Egidijus Kavaliauskas (2-0, 1 KO) won by third round TKO over Luis Borrego (3-2, 1 KO).
