The 24-year-old Puerto Rican New Haven, CT, resident and featherweight contender Luis Rosa, 125½, challenged Mexican veteran German Meraz, 124¾, in a scheduled eight-round bout. Switching between his natural orthodox stance and southpaw throughout the opening frame, Rosa began digging left hooks to the body. He continued to apply pressure and land hooks downstairs weakening Meraz’s legs. The Mexican subsequently began slipping to the canvas throughout the ensuing rounds resulting in a point deduction in round five. It was also in that frame that Rosa felled Meraz with a devastating right uppercut. Rosa scored a second knockdown in the seventh en route to winning a unanimous decision on scores of 80-68 and 79-69 twice. Ranked no. 12 by the WBC, Rosa improved his resume to 22-0 (10 KOs) while Meraz dropped to 48-37-1 (29 KOs).
