Solis Dominates, Stops Saguilan

Jr welterweight Luis Solis (24-8-4, 20 KOs) had few problems with Nery “Pantera” Saguilan (38-9-1, 13 KOs) on Sunday, impressively controlling his fellow countryman for most of the fight before scoring a twelfth round technical knockout to win the vacant WBF title at the Palenque de Gallos in Comitan, Mexico.
Only in the fifth round did Saguilan have some considerable success, when he landed a barrage of hard punches at the end of the stanza that appeared to rock his foe. But Solis recovered well and boxed his way out of trouble. Other than that, most of the rounds were identical with Solis on top. In the final round, Saguilan dropped his hands and when Solis consequently responded by landing two massive shots, referee Jesus Salcedo had seen enough and waved proceedings off. Time of stoppage was 1:50. The fight was the main event of a show promoted by Jose Duran and his Promociones Milenium.
