  Alan Solis Wins WBC Latino Featherweight Title

Unbeaten Mexican featherweight Alan “Lachorro” Solis captured the vacant World Boxing Organization (WBO) featherweight title last Friday night on the RJJ Boxing event, Roy Jones, Jr. Boxing Promotions and De La O Promotions, at Polideportivo Centenario in Los Mochia, Sonora, Mexico.

The 22-year-old Solis (13-0-1, 7 KOs) outboxed his dangerous opponent, Jonathan “El Fenix” Aguilar (19-9, 15 KOs), from start to finish for a unanimous 10-round unanimous decision in the main event. The new WBO featherweight champion stepped up his quality of opposition in Aguilar, who has ring experience against former world super bantamweight champion Angelo Leo, as well as world title challengers Dewayne Beamon and former Ghana Olympian Duke Micah.

In the co-featured event, WBC Continental Latino American welterweight champion Mauicio “Trompas” Pintor (24-4-1, 14 KOs) edged San Antonio welterweight Kendo “Tremendo” Castaneda (17-4, 8 KOs), a former NABA super lightweight titlist, by way of a close, unanimous 8-round decision (77-474, 76-75, 76-75) in a non-title clash. The difference was a 1-point deduction for Castaneda for hitting Pinto, the nephew of Hall of Famer and 2-division world champion Lupe Pintor, in the back during a clinch. Pintor overcame a cut over his left eye from an accidental headbutt in round three. Castaneda suffered his fourth consecutive loss.

WBC Youth Silver lightweight champion Luis “Koreano” Torres (11-0, 8 KOs) kept rolling, stopping Jose “Cuate” Paez (13-2-1, 10 KOs) in the fifth round, when he unloaded a flurry of unanswered punches in their non-title fight. Torres is 4-0 fighting on RJJ Boxing cards in which his opponents entered the ring with an accumulative record of 41-2-1.

Las Vegas flyweight prospect Kevin Urrutia improved to 2-0 as a pro boxer with a devastating third-round knockout of Miguel Angel “Tyson” Vazquez (0-4).
