Acosta Wins Interim WBO 108lb Title
Angel Acosta beat Juan Alejo by 10th round knockout earlier tonight on the Miguel Cotto/Sadam Ali undercard prior to HBO’s coverage.
Acosta, 17-1 17KO, was able to overpower and eventually stop a very game Alejo, 24-5-1 to win the interim WBO junior flyweight world championship. It was the San Juan, PR native first fight since losing to Japan’s Kosei Tanaka back in May.
Also earlier, Ronny Rios beat Delvis Julio in a one-sided featherweight bout by unanimous decision over 10 rounds. Rios, 29-2 13KO, won on the cards with scores of 100-90, 99-91 and 97-93 as Rios improved to 29-2, 13KO, and Julio dropped to 19-4.
