Nery destroys Canoy in 3 Round in his comeback fight.
On Saturday night in Tijuana, Mexico fight fans had the chance to see former WBC Bantamweight champion Luis Nery (27-0, 21) return to the ring since he lost the WBC title on the scales, ahead of his second bout with Shinsuke Yamanaka. In the opposite corner to the Mexican was Filipino foe Jason Canoy (27-9-2, 19), with the two men fighting for the WBC Silver Bantamweight title.
In the opening round the controversial Mexican fighter managed to drop Canoy with a short left hand, in what was a pretty dominant round for the Mexican fighter. Canoy never really seemed to recover fully.
Despite not recovering Canoy did show his toughness by making his way into round 3, though where he attempted to take the fight to Nery, though was caught against the ropes and took some notable punishment. Canoy would be bent over from some big body shots before a follow up from Nery dropped him.
For Canoy this is the first stoppage loss of his career whilst Nery keeps himself in the Bantamweight title mix, though it’s fair to say the WBC situation is a mess at Bantamweight given they don’t have a champion and potentially already have two-mandatory challengers lined up.
