Close fight through eight. Dilmaghani was cut over the left eye by an accidental headbutt in round nine and Fonseca clearly got the better down the stretch. Scores were 115-114 for Fonseca and 114-114, 114-114.

Super featherweight John Joe Nevin (14-0, 4 KOs) scored a ten round unanimous decision over Francisco’s brother Freddy Fonseca (27-5-1, 18 KOs) to claim the vacant WBA international title. Nevin dropped Fonseca in round two, then was outboxed the rest of the way. Scores were 99-90, 97-92, 97-92.
