Rey Vargas successfully defended his WBC 122 pound title by scoring a 12 round unanimous decision over Franklin Manzanilla, in what was a rather ugly affair, by the scores of 117-109 on all three cards. Vargas (33-0, 22 KOs) was sent to the canvas by a left hook in round two, but he recovered to subdue the Manzanilla (18-5, 17 KOs), who was penalized twice for fouling by referee, Raul Caiz Sr.
