Miguel Torres continued to establish himself not only as the
top bantamweight fighter in the world, but also one of the top pound for pound
fighters, when he battled Takeya Mizugaki to a five-round unanimous decision on
Sunday night in Chicago.

 

The two battled back and forth over the course of the fight,
but it would be Torres that was able to maintain the higher pace for the
duration and win the fight from the clinch.

 

Urijah Faber-trained Joseph Benavidez bested hometown
favorite Jeff Curran en route to a three-round unanimous decision. In the
process, he quickly lined himself up for a shot at Torres’ title, although it
appears as if Brian Bowles is first in line.
