The American threw his rival twice before he was given the fight for repeated low blows by the Dominican.
Jessie Magdaleno surpassed Yenifel Vicente in a match in which the Dominican was disqualified after multiple low blows. Magdaleno (28-1) knocked Vicente down (36-5-2) twice during what was a dominant performance in his super featherweight fight in Las Vegas on Thursday.
The former American WBO super bantamweight champion was in control before Vicente threw several low punches in the fourth round. Vicente was disqualified after other low blows in the tenth round, having received numerous point deductions during the match.
Magdaleno got off to a fast start and brought Vicente down with a left hand in the corner on the first lap. The fight threatened to get ugly in the fourth round, as Magdaleno continued to control the dynamics.
Vicente was deducted several points for low blows, and then another for a header when the referee went to separate the boxers. Magdaleno’s response was to throw him to the canvas again in the fifth round, this time with his right hand.
With Magdaleno on the way to victory, Vicente landed another low blow to start the tenth round and one point was deducted once again. Eventually, it would lead to a disqualification as Vicente repeated another low blow, leading to the fight halting. Magdaleno was very well stopped to go in search of the featherweight title.
