CALDERON LOSES TO FUENTES; TIME FOR THIS GREAT CHAMPION TO RETIRE

Moises Fuentes TKO5 Ivan Calderon...It looks like the end of the line for potential Hall of Famer Ivan Calderon, as the 200 Olympian and former world 105- and 108-pound champion lost a bid to reclaim a piece of the 105-pound championship. Mexico's Moises Fuentes defended his WBO 105-pound title by stopping Calderon in the round in Bayamon, Puerto Rico. Calderon did well in the early rounds, but Fuentes went into  attack mode in the fifth round. Calderon went down from a  combination to the head, leaving him on his knees near his corner. But Calderon quickly got trapped in a neutral corner, and the Puerto Rican took another knee. Fuentes continued to connect, this time with no response from Calderon, and referee Luis Pabon stopped the fight immediately when Calderon again took a knee. Fuentes improved his record to 16-1, while the great Calderon falls to 35-3-1. At 37, its time for this little giant  to retire. The loser of three of his last four, Calderon is perhaps second only to the great Ricardo Lopez on the all-time list of junior flyweights. source: espn deportes

Adrian Hernandez TKO6 Kompayak Porpramook...
Over the weekend, Mexico's Adrian Hernandez defeated Thaiand's Kompayak Porpramook via sixth-round knockout to regain the WBC 108-pound title in Toluca, Mexico. Hernandez's first reign, in 2011, ended when Porpramook stopped him in Thailand, so the stage is set for a third bout. Right at the end of the third round, Hernandez (25-2-1) landed a right hook on the side of the Thai's face, dropping him very hard. Badly hurt, Porpramook got up and fought back valiantly until the bell. At the start of the fourth round, the Thai, who was still shaking off the effects of the knockdown, blatantly head butted Hernandez, slicing open his left eyebrow. Panamanian Referee Hector Afu immediatly deducted a point from Porpramook. Hernandez ignored the trickle of blood. Meanwhile, the Thai's face was swelling badly. In the sixth, Hernandez set up Porpramook with a straight left and then  exploded a right to the jaw. The Thai fighter showed resillience  by somehow clambering to his feet, but his legs had betrayed him. He hestitated for what seemed to be an eternity as Afu beckoned him forward, and that was more than enough for the fight to be rightly stopped. source: WBC
