Vasquez-Apolinario ends in draw; Casimero tops Rios

WBA former two-division world champion, Roberto “La Araña” Vasquez (32-5-2, 22 KOs) and John Mark Apolinario (17-2-3, 4 KOs) battled to a controversial draw in a bout for the vacant WBA interim bantamweight title on Saturday night at the Megapolis Convention Center in Panama City. Scores were 116-112 Vasquez, 116-112 Apolinario and 115-115. The scoring was a surprise as Vasquez seemed to have been in command for much of the fight.

IBF light flyweight world champion John Riel Casimero (18-2, 10 KOs) outpointed mandatory challenger Luis Rios (18-2-1, 13 KOs) over twelve in a dull fight by scores of 119-109, 119-109, 118-110.
