Munguia rocked O’Sullivan in round one and threw hard shots throughout the fight. O’Sullivan was able to exploit Munguia’s defensive shortcomings at times. Munguia was deducted a point for a low blow in round six. O’Sullivan went down in round seven from another shot ruled a low blow, then took more punishment. Munguia finally battered O’Sullivan to the deck to end it as his corner threw in the towel at 2:17 of round eleven.

Former WBC female heavyweight champion Alejandra “La Tigre” Jimenez (13-0-1, 9 KOs) moved down to super middleweight to dethrone WBC and WBO female world champion Franchon “The Heavy-Hitting Diva” Crews-Dezurn (6-1, 2 KOs) by ten round split decision. Jimenez walked down Crews-Dezurn early, and Crews-Dezurn rallied down the stretch. Scores were 97-93, 98-92 Jimenez, 97-92 Crews-Dezurn.

Unbeaten lightweight Hector “El Finito” Tanajara Jr. (19-0, 5 KOs) defended his USNBC title with a ten round unanimous decision against the-time world title challenger Juan Carlos Burgos (33-4-2, 21 KOs). Scores were 99-91, 97-92, 97-92.

After three straight fights with Oscar Negrete, Joshua “The Professor” Franco (16-1-2, 8 KOs) successfully made his official debut at 115 pounds with a ninth round TKO over over rugged Jose Alejandro Burgos (17-3, 14 KOs). Franco broke down Burgos and got the stoppage with a barrage of punches. Time was 2:13.

Light heavyweight Tristan Kalkreuth (4-0, 3 KOs) scored a first round KO over Blake Lacaze (4-8-1, 2 KOs). Two knockdowns. Time was 1:50.

Unbeaten super welterweight Travell Mazion (17-0, 13 KOs) needed just 58 seconds to annihilate Fernando Castañeda (26-14-1, 17 KOs). A left to the liver left Castañeda completely debilitated.

Unbeaten super welterweight Alex Rincon (8-0, 7 KOs) scored a first round KO over Diego Perez (13-9-1, 11 KOs). Perez was knocked down twice. Time was 2:53. Before the official announcement, Rincon had some type of seizure in his corner and received medical attention. After a few tense minutes, he appeared to be OK.

  • these fight cards are absolute garbage….maybe with 10 fights we’ll get 8-9 rounds of sub-par slugging

  • Kalkreuth is going to be fun to watch for years. Six or 7 years from now we will likely be talking about him as a Heavyweight contender.

    • I like him too. He’s a rare talent to have so much control over that bug frame at such a young age. Dont see many teenage Lt Heavys going rpo.

  • Congratulations to the dude who beat Franchon tonight. A woman my ass. Franchon almost beat a dude tonight. Good for Franchon.

  • Damn Munguía was hitting way below the belt like a cheater knowing low blows takes away a fighters legs. WTF?

    • Well, San Antonio, northern Mexico is the low blow capital of the planet. Where low blows are considered body shots. Remember Lomachenko vs salido?

  • Not sold one bit on Munguia, wait until 5 years when they actually put him in with somebody with a pulse. David Lemieux would wipe the floor with him.

  • Munguia is a dirty fighter and a cheat!. Grub! Let he keep fighting taxi drivers on his way to a title shot.

  • Alejandra my ASS! His name is Alejandro he’s a male posing as a female anybody with half a brain can see that she’s really a HE! Just outrageous how a real woman really beat a man and was denied the victory! Alejandro should be ashamed of himself!!

  • I would like to see a fight between Munguia and fellow undefeated middleweight Serheii Borachuk. Too slow sluggers that are easy to hit who have good chins and good power. Bohachuk is slow but very precise with his well timed punches. O’Sullivan does not hit as hard as the Ukrainian, so this fight would be interesting. My guess is that crooked Oscar will get the Mexican hype job ranked with one of the sanctioning bodies against a weak opponent until he gets his ‘shot’, or rather set up fight.

    • Munguia is wide open and Spike caught him with the prefect counter end of 3rd round. Spike showed heart but he is shopworn and too small at 160. Munguia leaves his chin hanging out there and takes big shots unnecessarily. Still Munguia is 100% more exciting then Money Mayweather the defensive genius was.

  • Some in these boards are talking like a old ladies of the 60’s regarding to Alejandra Jimenez appearance. Get real and adjust yourself to modern times. Don’t tell me you are the ones that get amazed how some men look like women today too.

  • Good win against a punching bag. Tim to step it up..
    Ggg, Canelo, also lemieux is a better bout, but easy too

  • I think Munguia is trained by Bill Belichick UTR. Dirty!!! Kudos to Rollie Fingers with gloves for hanging in. I guess Lemieuxs power is for real
