Former world jr welterweight title challenger Alex Saucedo (30-1, 19 KOs) hammered out a ten round unanimous decision over Sonny Fredrickson (21-3, 14 KOs) on Tuesday night inside “The Bubble” at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Saucedo outworked Fredrickson to win 99-91, 98-92, 100-90.

“We worked on a lot of things in the gym. It was important for me to get the rounds in, and Sonny was a tough opponent,” said Saucedo afterward. “I am ready to take over the 140-pound division. Whatever opportunity comes my way, I will take advantage of it. Most importantly, I got rid of the ring rust and went 10 hard rounds.”

“I am a more disciplined fighter, but I’m still an aggressive fighter who goes for the knockout. That won’t change.”

After his father/trainer was banished for leaving the bubble, junior welterweight Josue Vargas had Raul Rivas step in on short notice. Vargas (17-1, 9 KOs) outpointed Salvador Briceno (17-6, 11 KOs) over ten. Scores 99-91, 100-90, 100-90.

Unbeaten junior welterweight John Bauza (14-0, 5 KOs) outpointed Larry Fryers (11-3, 4 KOs) over eight rounds, 79-73, 80-72, 80-72.

In an upset, middleweight Isiah Jones (9-2, 3 KOs) boxed his way to a six round majority decision over previously unbeaten Donte Stubbs (6-1, 2 KOs). Scores were 57-57, 58-56, 59-55.

  • Saucedo needs to watch the Josue Vasquez fight. That’s how he needs to move his body and head to avoid punches while delivering his own. It was a good victory for Saucedo, but he still keeps his head right in the middle while attacking and is vulnerable to uppercuts.

    I didn’t see much improvement from his previous fights, but he didn’t get hit as much and he didn’t get cut. That is an improvement in itself. The opponent could have done better with more consistent fighting, but he spent much of the fight on the ropes taking punches. When he did punch back in combination, he did well.

    We’ll need to see Saucedo against a higher level of competition before we’ll know if he can do better against the top fighters in the division. However, he is fighting again, which is more than I can say for the rest of the fighters in the division.
