WBA interim bantamweight champion Nehomar Cermeno (19-0, 11 KOs) scored an eleventh round KO over Alejandro Valdez (22-4-2, 16 KOs) on Saturday night at the Arena Itson in Ciudad Obregon, Sonora, Mexico. Valdez suffered a cut over his right eye from an unintentional headbutt in round one. Cermeno was credited with two knockdowns of Valdez (both of the flash variety) in round two, and gave him a boxing lesson for most the fight. Cermeno was deducted a point in round eleven for kneeing Valdez, but Cermeno came back to knock out Valdez in the same stanza. Time was 2:40.
