In what was another classic from the Forum in Inglewood, California as WBC super flyweight champion Srisaket Rungvisai (44-4-1, 39 KOs) of Thailand won a majority decision over Mexico's Juan Francisco Estrada (36-3, 25 KOs) in the Super Fly 2 main event as it was a battle from beginning to end. A competitive bout as Estrada boxed and countered Rungvisai's attack. In the final round both stood center going toe to toe non stop to the final bell.

Judges scored the bout 117-111, 115-113, and 114-114 as Srisaket Rungvisai retains his WBC title.

In the Super Fly 2 co-feature bout former super flyweight champion Carlos Cuadras (36-3-1, 27 KOs) of Mexico City and Puerto Rico's McWilliams Arroyo (17-3, 14 KOs) squared off as the Mexican and Puerto RIcan rivalry was renewed. Arroyo came out strong attacking landing power punches as Cuadras boxed in the opening round, later in the round it finished with Cuadras clinching and attempting to win the round over as he survived the early attack. An overhand right by Cudras found its mark as he staggered Arroyo to close the second round. Cuadras boxed behind the jab in round 3 as he followed up with the right, Arroyo continued to press.

The fifth round saw Cuadras connect with a wild left hook continuing to box and work behind the jab as Arroyo stalked. Missing with some wild punches to start off the sixth, Cuadras then boxed popping the jab as Arroyo was on the offensive. Arroyo connected with an overhand right that stopped Cuadras's momentum to close the seventh. The Puerto Rican fighter was cut above his right eye brow in the eighth as Cuadras began to let his hands go Arroyo appeared to be bothered by the cut.

Continuing to keep his distance in round nine the former world champion stuck to the plan boxing as he was more productive than the aggressive. The tenth and final round saw Arroyo keeping his distance as Cuadras was the aggressor closing strong. Judges scores were 98-92, 97-93, and 95-95 as McWilliams Arroyo wins a questionable majority decision.

Nietes came right after him and ended a flurry of punches with a perfectly landed uppercut that floored Reveco. Although Reveco got up, he was in no condition to continue and his own corner stopped the bout. By way of knockout at 0:53 of the seventh round, Nietes retains his IBF Flyweight title.

Ukraine's Artem Dalakian (16-0, 11KO) won the vacant WBA Flyweight title with an impressive performance over four-time world champion, Brian “Hawaiian Punch” Viloria (38-6, 22KOs). Dalakian clearly dominated the former world champion Viloria. All three judges scored the bout 118-109.

Paramount's Pedro Duran (16-0-3, 13 KOs) and Enrique Tinoco (16-5-4, 12 KOs) of Tijuana went the distance in a scheduled eight round lightweight bout. Duran and Tinoco came out slugging as they traded away in the opening round. Tinoco was on top of Duran in the second round pressing and backing him to the ropes. The southpaw Tinoco continued to be the aggressor as Duran boxed and kept his distance.

Stalking in round five Tinoco kept Duran on his toes working and in the closing seconds of the round Tinoco cornered attacked the body. Late in the fight Duran countered Tinoco's relentless aggression as he popped the jab. The eighth and final round Tinoco and Duran sensed the urgency with Duran boxing away and Tinoco searching for the knockout. In the end the judges scored the bout 77-75 for Duran, 76-76 and 76-76 as the bout was declared a draw.

Mexico City's Anahi Torres (17-17-1, 12KO) even her record and won the women’s WBC International light flyweight title with a questionable unanimous decision over previously undefeated Louisa Hawton (7-1, 3KO) in an eight round title fight.Scores were unanimous 77-75, 79-73, 77-75
