Segura Ends Reign Of Unbeaten Calderon

Video Inside

Fight fans have noticed a deterioration in mini-flyweight ace Ivan Calderon in the last couple of years. Giovanni Segura did more than notice--he accelerated the process, putting Calderon down in the eighth with a load of body shots in the main event of a card held in Guaynabo, Puerto Rico Saturday night. The 35-years-old Calderon, now 34-1, could not rise. The time of the win was 1:34.

The pace for the entirety was blistering, which did not favors for the Puerto Rican. The fellow southpaw Segura (age 28; from Mexico) was in predator mode the whole way through. To start the eighth, Calderon looked weak, ready to go, and Segura made sure of it with as consistent a body attack as we've seen this year. He went down, one one knee, and gestured to his left side, and waited for the ref to count ten. Segura takes the WBO 108 pound crown, to add to his WBA version.
