A boxing card took place Saturday night at the Radisson Victoria Plaza in Montevideo, Uruguay.
In the ten round main event, local middleweight favorite Amilcar Vidal (11-0, 10 KOs) of Uruguay remained unbeaten by stopping previously undefeated Leopoldo Reyna (9-1, 4 KOs) of Mexico. Vidal had Reyna in trouble in the first 30 seconds where Reyna was wobbled by a left hook and the referee issued a standing 8 count. Then at the 2:00 mark, Reyna again staggered where the referee issued another standing 8 count. Moments later Vidal battered Reyna a bit more against the ropes where the referee rightfully waved the fight off.
In the 12 round co-feature, super lightweight Juan Jose Velasco (21-2, 13 KOs) stopped countryman Leonardo Fabio Amitrano (16-5, 12 KOs) by KO in round five. A left hook landed by Velasco in a heated exchange dropped Amitrano, who did not beat the count. Velasco won the South American title.
