I remember seeing Jessie Magdaleno when he was still just an amateur, and even back then it was easy to spot his potential as a future prizefighter.

Fast forward to Saturday, April 22, and Magdaleno continues to settle into his status as a reigning champion following a second-round TKO victory over challenger Adeilson Dos Santos in Carson, Calif. that saw him successfully defend his WBO junior featherweight title for the first time.

On Saturday night, WBO junior lightweight champion Vasyl Lomachenko successfully defended his WBO junior lightweight title with a 9th round TKO over former champion Jason Sosa.

Lomachenko (8-1, 6 KO’s), who defeated his third former champion in a row, was a little too much for Sosa (20-2-4, 15 KO’s), who never stopped trying despite being outmatched. Following the ninth round, Sosa’s corner wisely elected to halt the action in the face of Lomachenko’s dominance.

As expected, eight-division world champion Manny Pacquiao defeated Jessie Vargas this past Saturday night in Las Vegas, Nev.

Inside of the Thomas & Mack Center, Pacquiao (59-6-2, 38 KO’s) was sharp, strong, and efficient throughout the fight, while Vargas, (27-2, 10 KO’s) lost no stock at all in defeat, showing true grit and determination in the face of his more experienced foe.

Pacquiao, 37, picks up the WBO welterweight title for a third time with the win and speculation about a rematch with Floyd Mayweather has begun. Check below for a closer look at the action.
