Billed as “Now or Never” (Ahora ó Nunca), Borizteca Boxing Promotions staged a World Boxing Federation (WBF) Championship double-header on Friday night, June 22, at the Salón Mezzanine in boxing-tradition-rich Tijuana, Mexico.

Undefeated Cuban Southpaw Marcos Foretal, from Guantanamo but now fighting out of Miami, Florida, impressively stopped Mexico´s Daniel Vega in the first round to win the vacant WBF International Super Bantamweight title.

Forestal (28), now 8-0 (5), looked determined to have an easy night, as he floored last minute substitute Vega, 7-7 (4), three times with well-placed body-shots, forcing referee Juan Jose Ramirez to wave the fight off at 1:29 of the very first stanza.

In the evenings co-feature, Rafael Ramon Ramirez failed to win his careers first professional title when his fight against Ramon “Cholo” Barajas for the vacant WBF Mexican Super Welterweight title was ruled a No-Contest due to a cut caused by an accidental head-clash in the third round.

Underdog Barajas (33) came to fight his chance and wildly attacked the 38-year-old Ramirez in the first two rounds, but didn't manage to land anything significant as Ramirez blocked most of his shots and counter-punched.

When the accidental clash of heads cut Ramirez, 20-4-1 (4), over the right eye in round three, the ringside doctor advised that the fight was stopped and consequently ruled a No-Contest, much to the dismay of Barajas, 11-16 (4).
