  Jair Valtierra Defeats Josee Clavero
By Unanimous Decision

Mexico's Jair "Kaiser" Valtierra defeated Argentina's Javier José "Heredero" Clavero by unanimous decision, 98-92, 100-91 and 98-92, to become the WBC Fecarbox Silver Lightweight Champion on EstrellaTV's monthly boxing series, Boxeo EstrellaTV. The series occurs on the last Friday of every month and is broadcast live from the Foro Centenario in Mexico City.

The youngster from León had to use his experience to come back in the fight after he injured his left fist in the third round, overcoming a tough opponent who fought him all the way.

Clavero managed to go ahead in points in the early rounds, but without hurting Valtierra significantly, while Jair tried to get Clavero against the ropes and look for the knockout. The judges scored the first round 38-38, 40-37, and 39-37, two of them in favor of Valtierra, while in the second round, the numbers were 78-74, 90-73, and 79-73, all in favor of Jair.

Blows seemed to bring the battle to the brink of knockout, but neither man went down. Valtierra finally outscored his opponent in the late rounds, so the judges' unanimous decision was for the "Kaiser" of León.

At the semifinal fight of the night, Mexico City's Ernesto Salcedo added a loss to his record, being defeated by Mexico City's Iván "Bam Bam" Hernández in a unanimous decision, 74-77, 74-77 and 74-77, eight-round fight at Super Bantamweight.
