Carlos Cuadras wasn’t at his best tonight, but he got the win over David Carmona, battling past the tough veteran to win a 10-round unanimous decision.

Scores were 96-94, 97-93, and 97-93 for Cuadras (36-1-1, 27 KO). The BLH cards had it 97-93 for Cuadras (mine), and 95-95 even (Wil Esco).

Carmona (20-4-5, 8 KO) drops his second straight fight with the loss, after coming up short against Naoya Inoue last May in Japan. He did give Cuadras real problems in the middle rounds, and hurt him a couple of times on body shots.

But ultimately, Cuadras just outlanded and outworked him, and probably swept the first five rounds on the judges’ cards, or something close to that. In the end, that gave him what he needed to pick up the win, despite swooning a bit in those middle rounds.

With the victory, Cuadras puts himself in position to rematch Roman “Chocolatito” Gonzalez, who is up next on the card in a WBC super flyweight title defense against Srisaket Sor Rungvisai.
