On Saturday, September 21, at Crown Plaza, Managua, Nicaragua, Roman Gonzalez stopped Francisco Rodriguez Jr. in the seventh round of flyweight non-title bout. The WBA junior flyweight champion was in control, but the stoppage seemed hasty at the 1:10 mark. Gonzalez raised his ledger to 36-0 (30). Rodriguez fell to 11-2 (9).
Gonzalez remains the uncontested number 108-pounder at SecondsOut.
Also on the card, Juan Carlos Sanchez Jr. stopped Darwin Zamora in seven rounds of bantamweight bout. The former 115-pound champion was recently stripped of his title for failing to make weight. Sanchez raised his record to 17-1-1 (9). Zamora fell to 21-9-1 (18).
Sanchez Jr. rose in weight to the bantamweight division and entered the SecondsOut rankings at seven after previously being number one at 115. The previous number seven through nine contenders fell one ranking. Pungluang Sor Singyu stepped out from the top ten for the time being.
At Oasis Hotel Complex, Cancun, Quintana Roo, Mexico, Robinson Castellanos defeated Derrick Wilson by KO in the sixth round of a featherweight contest. A right handed dropped Wilson and ended the fight in the sixth. Castellanos, a contemporary "Cinderella Man", won for the eleventh straight time to raise his record to 19-9 (12). Wilson fell to 10-5-2 (3).
Castellanos remained SecondsOut’s seventh ranked featherweight in the world.
Also on the move, Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. was dropped from the SecondsOut middleweight rankings due to inactivity. He will be reassessed as a super middleweight after next week’s scheduled bout with Brian Vera. Sam Soliman returned to the top ten to fill the vacancy.
