Juan Diaz stops Randy Suico

Juan Diaz TKO9 Randy Suico... On the Mosley-Vargas II undercard in Las Vegas, Juan Diaz retained his WBA lightweight championship with a ninth-round technical knockout of Randy Suico. Referee Joe Cortez stopped the bout at 2:06 of the ninth as Diaz was punishing the Filippino challenger with head shots. However, Diaz laid the groundwork for theĀ stoppage with an effective body attack. Suico was competitive in rounds five through seven, but Diaz was ahead in the bout throughout.
