Dib maintained his number nine standing among SecondsOut’s top featherweights. A possible showdown with Chris John is on the tips of a lot of tongues. This would be Dib’s most substantial challenge as a professional and a clear indicator of how much he has grown since his loss to Steve Luevano.
Also on the same day, in Acapulco, Guerrero, Mexico, Hugo Fidel Cazares stopped substitute Adan Garcia in seven rounds of a bantamweight bout. Garcia hit the canvas in rounds four and seven before the bout was called to a halt at 1:41 mark. Cazares upped his record to 36-7-2 (26). Garcia dipped to 17-6-1 (12).
Cazares held onto his SecondsOut number nine ranking at 118 pounds.
Also on the same date, at Estadio Centenario, Los Mochis, Sinaloa, Mexico, Fernando Montiel suffered an upset loss to Victor Terrazas by twelve round decision in a super bantamweight bout. Terrazas put Montiel to the canvas in the fifth round and prevailed by scores of 115-112, 115-113, and 114-113. Terrazas added to his ring credentials with this career best victory and now stands at 32-2-1 (18). Montiel, perhaps at the end of a hall of fame career, dropped to 46-4-2 (36).
Jorge Arce abandoned his number two ranking at SecondsOut to return to bantamweight. Rendall Munroe climbed back aboard the SecondsOut top ten at 122 pounds given his stoppage of Terrazas previously. He re-enters at ninth. Montiel exits the top ten for the time being and Terrazas fills in at tenth.
Also that evening, a Reliant Arena, Houston, Texas, USA, Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. stopped Peter Manfredo Jr. in five rounds of a WBC middleweight title bout. Although never hitting the canvas, Manfredo was badly rocked in the fifth before being swarmed Chavez. The WBC champion made the first defense of his title and improved his ledger to 44-0-1 (31). The brave Manfredo dropped to 37-7 (20) and has perhaps laced up the gloves for the last time.
Chavez Jr. maintained his number eight ranking among SecondsOut elite 160 pounders.
