Giovanni Cabrera-Mioletti is making a habit out of handing fighters their first career defeat.
Junior lightweight Cabrera-Mioletti improved to 12-0 by beating previously unbeaten Elijah Pierce by unanimous decision in the main event of Battle at the Boat 116 on Saturday at the Emerald Queen Casino in Tacoma, Wash.
Cabrera-Mioletti, who knocked Pierce down at the end of the first round, appeared as the 97-92, 97-92, 100-89 winner on the judge’s scorecard.
It was Cabrera-Mioletti’s second consecutive win over an undefeated fighter and the fourth time over his last six fights he accomplished the feat.
Pierce fell to 8-1-0 with the loss.
While Pierce suffered his first career setback two fighters on the undercard – Steven Villalobos and Cris Reyes – both remained undefeated.
Villalobos improved his record to 8-0-1 after beating Jose Leon (6-3-1) by first-round TKO (2:47) in their 152-pound feature bout.
It marked the seventh career KO for Villalobos.
Reyes (3-0-0, 2 KOs) also notched his win via TKO, defeating a debuting Bryce Gonzales in the second round (1:21) of their 139-pound contest.
A.J. Weber (1-0-0, KO) kicked off the show by knocking out Brent Knopp 1:19 into the first round of the 215-pound bout.
