19-year-old up-and-comer Ricardo “El Nino” Sandoval was impressive in winning the vacant World Boxing Federation (WBF) Mexican Flyweight title on Saturday, February 10, at the Independencia Gimnasium in Tijuana.

Sandoval, a pro since June of 2016 and fighting out of the Riverside Boxing Academy in California, USA, stopped late replacement Irving Fierro, who was overwhelmed and retired on his stool at the beginning of the third round.

Before that Sandoval had kept the pressure on his opponent from the start, and, while Fierro appeared focused and motivated as he tried to counter-punch in the first round, landed many hard shots to body and head.

After two rounds of punishment from the faster and sharper Sandoval, Fierro had had enough, and refused to continue. Consequently, Referee Manuel Rincon officially waved the fight off at 10 seconds of the third round.

The new World Boxing Federation (WBF) Mexican Flyweight Champion improved his professional record to 11-1 (8), while Fierro drops to 7-2 (4). The fight was promoted by Fabrica De Campeones.
