Saturday night in Hangzhou, China, WBA World super bantamweight champion Nehomar Cermeño (28-5-1, 15 KOs), from Panama City, Panama, by way of Barcelona, Venezuela, successfully defended his title a second time with a unanimous decision victory over # 7 ranked XiaoJun Qiu (21-4, 10 KOs), the Fighting Pride of Hangzou, after 12 rounds of action.

The final scores were 118-110 and 117-111 twice.
