Corley Loses Unanimous Decision In Mexico!

Former WBO Super Lightweight champion DeMarcus "Chop Chop" Corley lost a 12-round unanimous decision to Nery "Pantera" Saguilan of Guadalajara, Mexico Saturday in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico.

According to writer Gabriel F. Cordero, the 41-year-old Corley may have been robbed of a win.  Here's Cordero's account of the bout:

"The 41-year-old southpaw Corley came out aggressively and outworked Saguilan in round one. Saguilan upped the pressure in round two, but Corley still held his own and did more for the first four rounds. Saguilan started coming on in round five, but Corley had more left in the late rounds. Scores were 115-114, 115-113, 115-113 for Saguilan. We had Corley a clear winner."

Corley's record falls to 42-24-1, 25 KO's.  Saguilan's record rises to 34-4-1, 12 KO's and Saguilan holds on to his WBC Fecarbox Super Lightweight title.
