San Juan del Rio, Mexico

Omar Nino UD12 Rodel Mayol - Nino and Mayol rematched a dirty fight that ended in a technical draw.  While this rematch was just as dirty, at least it didn't result in an early stoppage.  Mayol did open up a gash on Nino with a headbutt early on, but Nino was able to fight through it and mostly outwork Mayol to a unanimous decision.  While the bout was close, it probably wasn't controversial enough to warrant a rubber match.  Nino takes home the WBC's light flyweight title.  

Tomas Rojas RTD7 Felipe Almanza.  Rojas gets his second win over mediocre opposition since getting knocked out by Vic Darchinyan.  Also on the undercard, Alonso Lopez, Finito's son, scored a win to move to 4-0.

Oakland, California

Andre Ward UD12 Allan Green - Full report is here.  

Mark "TNT" Tucker UD Billy Bailey - Tucker got a little bit of help in his first fight with Lou DiBella.  According to our own Waldo, Tucker looked sluggish and got more than the benefit of the doubt from the judges.  

Steve Upshur Chambers UD Hector Alatorre - Chambers, on the other hand, handled former Victor Ortiz victim Alatorre quite easily.  For those who don't know, Chambers is best friends with Fast Eddie Chambers, and early in his career, he took on Eddie's last name.  Chambers is another fast fighter, but like his namesake, couldn't break an egg.  

Niagara Falls, New York

Hasim Rahman TKO4 Shannon Miller - In Rahman's second fight since getting dominated by Wladimir Klitschko, he himself dominated Miller, knocking him down several times en route to a corner stoppage.  Rahman says he's going to try to keep fighting as frequently as possible so that he can get one more title shot in the next year.  

Nayarit, Mexico

Efren Dapudong KO1 Jesus Jimenez - Dapudong is thought to be yet another hope from the Philippines.  The power punching Pinoy scored a quick knockout of Jesus Jimenez to score an interim flyweight title.  This makes Dapudong a mandatory for WBC titlist and true champion Pongsaklek Wonjongkam.  

Gauteng, South Africa

Hekkie Budler SD12 Juanito Rubillar - Budler retains the IBO light flyweight title he controversially won after their first battle.  Much like the first, this one was close and highly contested, although the early consensus seems to be that it wasn't a flat out robbery like the first one.  The final scores were 115-113 and 116-111 in favor of Budler, as well as 114-113 in favor of Rubillar. 

Isaac Chilemba UD12 Michael Bolling - This was for the IBO's super middleweight title.  "Golden Boy" Chilemba is probably the top Malawian fighter in the world, and is one of the better prospects in South Africa.  He's had a well publicized dispute with former trainer Nick Durandt, so it's good to see he was still able to land on his feet. Bolling is the Australian titlist and owns blowout wins over Victor Oganov and Serge Yannick.  Still, Chilemba dominated the southpaw Aussie, winning by scores of 119-109, 119-109 and 119-108.  

Gideon Buthelezi UD12 Ronelle Ferreras - This too was for an IBO title, this time the minimumweight strap.
