Israel Rodriguez Picazo outclassed Mexican compatriot Hector Garcia Dolores to win the vacant World Boxing Federation (WBF) World Super Bantamweight title on Saturday night, April 10, at the Grand Hotel in Tijuana.

Rodriguez Picazo (22) asserted himself from the first round and controlled Garcia Dolores with jabs and hard body-shots, and at the same time showed excellent ring-generalship to stay away from the powerful shots coming at him.

In round seven Garcia Dolores (21) found some momentum and attacked furiously with some success to probably edge the round. But from round eight it was Rodriguez Picazo who was back in the driving-seat and in control.

At the beginning of round ten the corner of Garcia Dolores decided their man, bleeding significantly from the nose since round three, had taken enough punishment, and informed referee Fernando Renteria, who consequently waved it off. Official time of stoppage: 0:10 of round ten.

After a career-best performance, the new WBF World Super Bantamweight Champion improved his professional ledger to 21-5 (13). Garcia Dolores, a WBA regional titlist at Featherweight, drops to 9-5 (5).

Promoted by Zanfer Box in cooperation with 2M Promotions, the fight was part of a card televised in Mexico by Box Azteca.
