    Cards flying a little under the radar but not bad for $35. Gofightlive is also showing it.

    As usual with the integrated sports PPV pretty good value. So far appears to be a 6 fight telecast.

    First three fights showcased Puerto rican prospects. Sonsona vs. Vázquez Jr was a decent fight. WV2 pulled off the slight upset with a great body shot KO.
    Now on to the second half of telecast in Mexico.

    This was another good PPV by integrated sports. If only they had the money and power to advertise these abit better.
    Arum and others should take note. $35 for six fights. We saw three one sided fights showcasing prospects. A fight of year candidate and two world title fights.
    If Arum did this with Latin fury etc he may get a better following. What about showtime teamin up and doing some six fight PPV's with integrated sports.

    WBC light flyweight championship Rodel Mayol and Omar Nino Romero fought to a tech draw. Romero landed a KO shot on Mayol after a low blow while the ref was stepping in to break them up. Probably the right decision here.

    WBC Youth World lightweight championship. Daniel Estrada and Angel Alirio Rivero stole the show for the . In a fight of the year candidate Estrada won on a controversial stoppage int he tenth. Almost as bad as the Vivain Harris Ko except these two had been bombing on each other for nine rounds. So maybe we can excuse the ref here.

    Vacant WBO junior featherweight championship, Wilfredo Vazquez, Jr. Ko'd former WBO super flyweight champion Marvin Sonsona. WV2 beat up the younger smaller Sonsona. Vazquez landed a left hook to body followed by a huge right and then back to the left to the body to floor Sonsona in the fourth.

    Unbeaten 6′6 Olympian cruiserweight Carlos Negron (8-0, 6 KOs) scored an explosive first round KO over Rudy Ashworth (5-8, 1 KO). Negron scored three knockdowns, the final one for the count. Time was 2:59.

    Flyweight McWilliams Arroyo making his debut beat Eliecer Sanchez with a brutal 1st round KO.

    Bantamweight McJoe Arroyo making his debut hunted down Giovanni Rivera 0-2. Rivera threw wide slapping punches. Ive seen female fighters that would whip his ass. Pretty pathetic.

    I was there last night at the ruben rodriguez coliseo watching the fights from P.R, it was an entertaining night and the crowd was into it a lot. Vazquez looked good in there but he was fighting a much smaller guy, Negron looks like he will be a good cruiser in the future and i have always been high on the Mcwilliam Arroyo brothers since thhey have been in the amature, i think they will have good pro careers.

    To bad Mayol didn't have his title stolen. He won it on a foul over Sosa anyways.

    Cool, looked like a good crowd.

    Negron needs some work but his size will help him. I look forward to seeing how he progresses.
