Saturday Results: Maidana stops Cayo in Vegas, Morales wins in comeback

Marcos Maidana knocked out Victor Cayo with a body shot in six rounds.

First off, we have full recaps of Abraham-Dirrell, Gamboa-Barros and Kameda-Wonjongkam from today/tonight. Here are some other results from around the boxing globe.

Las Vegas, NV (HBO): Marcos Maidana knocked out Victor Cayo on a body shot in the sixth round, in what appeared to be a bombs away slugfest. Maidana is now 28-1 (27 KO), while it's Cayo's first loss (24-1, 16 KO). On the undercard, in a largely meaningless fight because of Joan Guzman's weight problems, Guzman outpointed Ali Funeka on a split decision. Guzman (30-0-1, 17 KO) won on scores of 116-111, 114-113 and 113-114. Funeka, who is on a "one thing after another" run right now, falls to 30-3-3 (25 KO).

Monterrey, Mexico (PPV): Erik Morales won a unanimous decision in his comeback fight, beating Jose Alfaro in the welterweight debut of both fighters. Morales is now 49-6 (34 KO), but early reports are that he didn't look very good at all. Chris Henry (25-2, 20 KO) knocked out Hugo Garay (32-5, 17 KO) at 2:20 of the first round.

Baja California, Mexico (Top Rank Live): Ulises Solis beat Bert Batawang for the second time, when Batawang quit after six rounds. Solis improves to 30-2-2 (21 KO), while veteran Batawang drops to 45-15-3 (37 KO). Giovani Segura also won on the card.

Rama, Ontario, Canada (TSN): Steve Molitor won his rematch with Takalani Ndlovu on scores of 117-111, 116-112, and 115-113. Molitor (32-1, 12 KO) is now once again the IBF junior featherweight titlist.

La Guaira, Venezuela: Anselmo Moreno won a controversial split decision victory over Nehomar Cermeno, with scores of 115-112, 114-113 and 112-115.  Jorge Linares won a split decision over Francisco Lorenzo as well.  While the Linares win was not controversial, he reportedly didn't look good, and it was close enough that one judge scored the bout even.
