Soto sends message to Morales, destroys Nakamori

By Gabriel F. Cordero

Mexican three-time world champion Humberto “Zorrita” Soto (61-8-2, 35 KOs) showed onlooking ring legend Erik Morales what he is in for if Soto and Morales meet in Morales’ farewell fight. Soto mercilessly battered and stopped Hiroshi Nakamori (33-6-1, 20 KOs) in nine brutal rounds to retain his WBC International silver belt on Saturday night at the Monumental Villa Charra Carlos Bowser Gonzalez in Tijuana. The super game Nakamori took a lot of punishment before the bout was finally halted by the ring doctor due to damage to Nakamori’s left eye.

Soto and Morales had been talking up a possible showdown all during fight week and Morales was at ringside to observe his next possible opponent.

In another fight, light flyweight Jose Alfredo Zuniga (11-4-1, 5 KOs) surprisingly upset Luis “Pollito” Ceja (23-4-3, 19 KOs) by unanimous decision to seize Ceja’s WBC International silver belt.

Unbeaten super featherweight Adrian Estrella (12-0, 12 KOs) defends his WBC Fecarbox super lightweight crown with a first round KO over Luis Carlos “Bam Bam” Martinez.

Undefeated WBC super bantanweight silver Youth champion Rey Vargas (14-0, 13 KOs) blew away Cecilio “Boga” Santos in round two.

2008 Olympian super welterweight Javier “Intocable” Molina (14-1, 6 KOs) annihilated Francisco Javier Parra in one round.
