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.
