    Background: Mexico's Rodolfo Martinez scored an easy seventh-round knock out against Colombia's Nestor Jiminez in Bogota on Saturday night (31 May) to retain his World Boxing Council (WBC) Bantamweight Crown.

    Martinez, defending his title for the first time since he won it in December, punished his challenger with a series of devastating punches from the first bell.

    By the end of the seventh round Jiminez was staggering around the ring in dazed confusion. He failed to appear for the eighth round and Martinez was declared the winner by a knock out.

    Martinez will next defend his crown in Tokyo (possibly in mid-July) -- against Japan's Hisami Numata for an 80,000-U.S.-dollar purse.
