Vazquez vs. Rios

Vazquez makes it five wins in a row by KO/TKO with stoppage of Rios. After an even first round in the second Vazquez landed a left to the chin which put Rios down heavily. He got up only to be put down by another left. Vazquez was looking to end it in the third but Rios was only focusing on survival and saw out the round. A right put Rios down again in the fourth. At the end of the round the doctor examined Rios in his corner and the fight was stopped. The 37-year-old Brooklyn-based Puerto Rican wins the vacant Fedelatin title having previously won the same title at super bantam. Vazquez who did not turn pro until he was 32 has 11 wins by KO/TKO. Texan Rios, 32, had moved up from super fly. This his fifth loss in a row.
