WBA gold super bantamweight champion Ronny Rios (33-3, 16 KOs) scored a one-sided ten round unanimous decision over WBA #13 Oscar “El Jaguar” Negrete (19-3-2, 7 KOs) on Saturday night at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino in Indio, California. Rios outboxed and outworked Negrete to win 100-90, 100-90, 99-91.

“I should have sat down more on my punches,” said Rios. “I went in a little bit too much with my head, and I kind of waited too long. But I’m happy with the win. I really want a world title shot for my next fight, and I think this fight was a necessary step in that direction.”

Big Baby Anderson moves to 8-0, 8 KOs
Mosley Jr, Bek Bully, Crazy A victorious

  • Rios was superb. He blew my expectations out of the water based on some of his last performances. Perhaps he has turned over a new leaf and will now be showing his best now. I hope he can keep giving his A game. With the one fight postponement on the other card and Diaz’s underwhelming weekend Rios was a big plus. The other fights also. It was good to see Victor Morales Jr. He has potential to be something if he keeps developing a well rounded style.
