Jermall Charlo and Juan Macias Montiel

Fighting before a home crowd in Houston, Jermall Charlo defeated Juan Macias Montiel  to defend his WBC middleweight belt and improve to 32-0. 

Charlo won by unanimous decision, with the judges scoring the bout in his favour 120-108, 119-109 and 118-109. 

Though Charlo dominated the fight, he never seemed a threat to knock out the challenger. 

“He was a real warrior to get into the ring with me,” Charlo said.

“He fought hard each and every round.”

In Las Vegas, Naoya Inoue remained unbeaten with a third-round TKO of Michael Dasmarinas to retain his WBA, IBF and The Ring bantamweight titles. 

Inoue (21-0) had little trouble with the IBF mandatory challenger, delivering a flurry of body blows to send the Filipino to the canvas at 2:45 in the third. 

The Japanese fighter's win in the third followed a knockdown on a body shot in the second that only ended up prolonging the agony for Dasmarinas.
