Miguel Torres and Antonio Banuelos was a fight that, on paper, should have been one of the most exciting fights of the night. Instead Banuelos had no clue how to fight a much taller man and spent three rounds getting jabbed in the face. Torres never had to deviate from the gameplan of using his reach and simply stood outside jabbing and throwing the occasional right hand.
The crowd was not pleased with getting a slow paced strategic effort from Torres but there was no reason for him to risk danger when Banuelos was unwilling to throw punches to try to close the distance. All three judges scored the fight 30-27 for Torres.
Miguel has now won two fights in a row and is looking to get back into the title picture at 135 pounds. He will need to continue picking up wins as the 135 pound division is filled with talented fighter including the recently relocated Urijah Faber.
