By Ken Hissner: At the Domo Alcalde, Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico, on Saturday over DAZN, Fernando Beltran (Promociones Zanfer) and Oscar De La Hoya (Golden Boy Promotions) in the main event presented former WBC Silver super lightweight champion Jose “Chon” Zepeda defeated India’s Neeraj “Gangster” Goyat over ten lopsided rounds.

In the first three rounds, Zepeda controlled backing up Goyat the entire three rounds. In the fourth round, Goyat started clowning around, losing another round. Goyat started fighting well off the ropes in the seventh round, though not enough to take the round.

In the ninth round, Zepeda continued having Goyat against the ropes on the defense. In the tenth and final round, Goyat continued raising his arms, going from orthodox to southpaw to no avail, taking a beating. The referee was Manuel Rivera.

Scores were 100-90 by all judges and this writer.
