Antonio Pitalua vs Cosme Rivera III: Live Results and Round-By-Round Coverage

The vacant WBC Latino junior welterweight title is on the line once again between 41-year-old Antonio Pitalua of Colombia and Mexico's 35-year-old Cosme Rivera. The fight airs live tonight at 11:35 p.m. EST on Telemundo in the United States and Televisa in Mexico.

Pitalua (52-5-1, 46 KO) and Rivera (33-14-3, 24 KO) went to a split draw on September 9 in Mexico City, with one judge scoring it for Rivera (115-113), another for Pitalua (115-114), and a third even (114-114). The rematch was signed within days and the new date set up. They fight tonight in Polanco, the only change from the first bout (I'd previously seen it listed at the exact same venue, but too good to be true).

The two also fought in 1999, with Pitalua winning a 10-round decision.

There are no really notable undercard fights scheduled, with the most significant of the lot an eight-round featherweight scrap between Colombia's Miguel Marriaga (10-0, 9 KO) and Mexico's Josue Veraza (10-2-1, 9 KO).

Join us this evening for what should be another entertaining fight between a couple of veteran scrappers.
