Nestor Bravo kept his all-time record and became the NABO 140-pound champion by scoring a 7-round stoppage over veteran Adrian Yung of Mexico.
The card is promoted by Miguel Cotto Promotions as part of the WBO’s annual event on September 26 at Coliseo Roberto Clemente in San Juan, Puerto Rico.
Fighting out of nearby Arecibo and under the Boxlab Promotions banner, Bravo scored in the third round with a nice left hook. Yung Game turned it over, but Bravo controlled the fight.
He continued to shoot clean and bloody Yung. After a flurry of punches, Yung’s corner threw in the towel at 1:18 of round seven.
With the win, Bravo moved to 21-0 with 15 knockouts and became the second fighter to stop Yung, who is 28-8-2.
“We have always had confidence in Nestor and his ability as a fighter to compete for the WBO NABO title in his home country of Puerto Rico and on Probox.TV,” said Amaury Piedra of Boxlab Promotions.
“The opportunity (during the WBO event) was so good we couldn’t pass it up and we are proud of the way he fought. We look forward to taking on new challenges and every junior welterweight needs to keep an eye on Nestor Bravo!”
