WBO #7 super bantamweight Cesar “Corazon” Juarez (22-6, 17 KOs) scored a ninth round KO over Wilber Soto (21-4, 11 KOs) on Saturday night at the Gimnasio del Sindicato de Trabajadores del Metro in Mexico City. A right hand by Juarez floored Soto face first to end it. It was Juarez second bout since losing to Isaac Dogboe in a WBO interim title fight.

In the main event, Jessica Nery Plata (22-2, 3 KOs) surprisingly dethroned previously unbeaten WBA female minimum weight champion Silvia “Guerrerita” Torres (19-1, 6 KOs) by split decision. Scores were 97-94 Torres, 98-93, 96-94 Nery Plata.
