The much taller 5’7 ½” WBC super flyweight champion Rey Vargas (31-0, 22 KOs) used his height and reach advantage to defeat voluntary challenger Oscar Negrete (17-1, 7 KOs) by a one-sided 12 round unanimous decision on Saturday night at Madison Square Garden in New York.

Vargas vs. Negrete is the co-feature bout on the HBO World Championship Boxing card headlined by Miguel Cotto vs. Sadam Ali.

The judges scored the Vargas-Negrete fight 119-108, 119-108, and 120-108. It took Negrete 6 rounds to realize that he would be more effective fighting on the inside rather than the outside.

Negrete had tried to use an in and out style of fighting against Vargas, but it didn’t work well. Vargas was adept at catching Negrete with shots when he was coming forward.

Vargas suffered cuts over both eyes, starting in round 5. The first cut over his right eye of Vargas seemed to slow him down a little in the 5th and 6th, and this enabled Negrete to be more effective than he’d been in the previous rounds.
