Leo Santa Cruz stayed undefeated and successfully defended his 122-pound world title belt tonight at the Alamodome, beating Puerto Rico's Cesar Seda by unanimous decision on scores of 117-110, 116-111, and 115-112. BLH had it either 117-110 or 118-109 for Santa Cruz. BLH is having some health issues. BLH apologizes for anything abnormally dumb tonight. BLH is doing BLH's best, you guys. Back off BLH.
Anyway, Santa Cruz (26-0-1, 15 KO) was his usual self in this one, outworking the credible and solid Seda (27-2, 15 KO) pretty much every round, though Seda fought well and gave Santa Cruz a legitimate challenge. In other words, Santa Cruz couldn't cruise through this one. He had a legit fighter in the ring with him tonight that made him work for this win, and it was a pretty good win at the end of the day.
Santa Cruz has recently stated he plans to move to featherweight in the not-too-distant future, next Sunday A.D., but we'll see if he plans to do that next fight or maybe two fights from now.
