Mexico’s Christian Fermin URUZQUIETA Fragoso had outpointed local boxing star Ray Moylette by SD10 last year at the Royal Theatre in Castlebar (Ireland) to win the vacant WBC International 135 Lbs Silver title.

Ray Moylette suffered an agonising defeat against Christian Uruzquieta in a thrilling contest at the Royal Theatre in Castlebar on Friday night.

In front of a passionate crowd, Moylette was beaten on a split decision as two knockdowns in the fifth round proved the difference against the equally tough and exciting Uruzquieta.

It took remarkable bravery by the home fighter to get off the canvas twice, particularly as he had to survive over two minutes of unyielding shots from his opponent while struggling to stay on his feet.

Eventually,  the judges scored:

Paul Ryan 94-95 Uruzquieta

Rodolfo Ramirez Flores 92-96 Uruzquieta

Patrick Rattinghan (Padraid O’Reachtagain) 95-94 Moylette
