Figueroa Dominates, KOs Chacon

In front of a hometown crowd, Brandon Figueroa retained the interim WBA super bantamweight championship with a fourth-round knockout of Javier Chacon.

The bout headlined a Premier Boxing Champions (PBC) card at the Bert Ogden Arena in Edinburg, Texas.

After some sizing up in the early part of the opening round, Figueroa hurt Chacon with a couple of body shots. Figueroa didn’t let up from that moment, dominating Chacon and pressuring him throughout the second and third rounds.

Figueroa ended up dropping Chacon just over a minute into the fourth round, and he could not beat the referee’s count of 10.
