Last night Puerto Rican Jose “Sniper” Pedraza (25-1, 12 KO’s) from Cidra, Puerto Rico captures the WBO Jr. Featherweight World Title in spectacular fashion by dethroning veteran Ray Beltran (35-8-1, 21 KO’s) by ways of twelfth round unanimous decision in a hard fought battle.
Pedraza jumped right in there early on boxed Beltran who could not get out of the jab, Beltran made adjustments in the middle rounds by scoring hard shots of his own as Pedraza began to hold frequently. In the Championship rounds Pedraza found a opening and took it by landing a hard uppercut in round eleven that send Beltran down to the canvas that pretty much sealed it for the new Champion who will now face Vasyl Lomachenko in December.
