Review: 2014-02-08, good exchanges but disappointing finish: Julio Ceja vs Jesus Acosta gets two stars. The 21-year-old Julio Ceja entered this fight with a boxing record of 25-1-0 (23 KOs=92%) and he is ranked as the No.12 bantamweight in the world, he fought three times last year beating Henry Maldonado (=Ceja vs Maldonado) and Juan Jose Montes (=Ceja vs Montes) but he also suffered his only defeat in his first world title shot and first fight outside Mexico against Jamie McDonnell via majority decision (=McDonnell vs Ceja).
His opponent, Jesus Acosta, is also 21 and has an official record of 14-2-2 (10 knockouts), he entered as the No.86 in the same weight class but he has never faced any respectable opponent, just in his last fight he faced #37 super bantamweight Arturo Santos Reyes but he lost via unanimous decision. ‘Pollito’ Ceja vs Acosta is valid for the WBC Silver bantamweight title; undercard of Adrian Hernandez vs Janiel Rivera.
