Mexican featherweight Cesar Juarez needed to dig deep in opposition to Wilner Soto to safe a ninth-round knockout on the Domo Sindicato de Trabajadores IMSS in Mexico City on Saturday. The bout was scheduled for 10.
Juarez (22-6, 17 knockouts) utilized his awkward, aggressive fashion to stroll his opponent down. Soto, from Columbia, gamely tried to carry his floor and alternate with the previous junior featherweight title challenger and he did have some success.
However, regardless of his punch output dropping in the center rounds, the 26-year-old Juarez, who resides in the Mexico City space, was at all times coming ahead.
It was a detailed contest, however Juarez fed off the partisan crowd and located himself a second wind. Suddenly, a tough proper hand dropped Soto (20-Four, 11 KOs) face-first to the canvas, prompting referee Jose Medel to instantly cease the combat at 46 seconds.
“We’ll see what he will decide to do after the fight,” supervisor Sean Gibbons advised RingTV.com earlier than the combat. “He could easily decide to go down and look to fight for a world title at 122 pounds and settle unfinished business with Isaac Dogboe.”
Juarez traveled to Accra, Ghana, Dogboe’s hometown, and was stopped in the fifth spherical on Jan. 6. Juarez maintains that referee Tony Weeks stopped the bout too quickly and is on the lookout for a rematch.
Dogboe (18-Zero, 12 KOs) is difficult WBO junior featherweight titleholder Jessie Magdaleno on Apr. 28 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
