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.”
