LOS ANGELES – It was a night to remember for fight fans, as boxers from Mexico and Thailand battled it

out last Saturday at the Desert Diamond Casino in Tucson, Arizona for the right to earn the inaugural Boxing

World Cup.

 

In the end, two champions retained their titles, two new champions were crowned, and Mexico emerged as

the series winner by a score of 5-1.

 

“We’re very proud of our Mexican warriors, who emerged victorious in the first installment of the Boxing

World Cup,” said Golden Boy Promotions President Oscar De La Hoya. “But I would be remiss if I didn’t

also salute the great fighters of Thailand, who gave it their all in every fight and did their nation proud.”

 

- In the Boxing World Cup main event, Fernando Montiel retained his WBO super flyweight championship

  with a unanimous decision over Pramuansak Phosawan.

- Jhonny Gonzalez made the most of his first world title shot, stopping courageous champion Ratanachai

  Sor Vorapin in the seventh round to win the WBO bantamweight crown.

- Another first time world champion was Daniel Ponce De Leon, who took the vacant WBO 122-pound title

  with a unanimous 12 round decision over Sod Looknongyangtoy.

- In the HBO Latino opener, WBO 108-pound champion Hugo Cazares retained his title with a sixth round

  stoppage of Kaichon Sor Vorapin.

- Terdsak Jandaeng earned Thailand it’s only victory of the night as he won a split decision over Carlos

  Contreras in a featherweight bout.

- Opening the show on a winning note for Mexico was featherweight German Cruz, who stopped Petch

  Windysports in the fourth and final round of their bout.

Congratulations to all our Golden Boy warriors!
