From Showtime: "In an exciting, tremendous slugfest that featured six knockdowns and numerous exchanges throughout, Jose Antonio Rivera won a 12-round decision over defending champion Alejandro 'Terra' Garcia to capture the WBA super welterweight title Saturday on SHOWTIME."
We have posted the Showtime press release on Saturday night’s wonderful Jose Rivera-Alejandro Garcia and Luis Perez-Dimitri Kirilov card from Worcester, Mass., on the Combat Sports News.
Rivera may have fought the fight of his life by dropping the rugged Garcia five times
In the co-feature, Russian fighter Dimitri Kirilov was clearly robbed against IBF junior bantamweight champ Luis Perez by a 12-round split decision. After the fight Perez did say he would give Kirilov a rematch.
