Ontario, CA - Keeping his WBC Featherweight mandatory position n place, Tijuana Mexico's Juan Carlos ''Mini'' Burgos dropped Colombia's Yogli Herrera two times en route to a six round stoppage on Friday night at the Double Tree Hotel in Ontario California.

Headlining the Thompson Boxing Promotions, Fox Sports En Espanol main event, Burgos (23-0, 16KOs) would out work and over power a game Yogli Herrerz (22-12, 15KOs) sending him down to the canvas in the third round with ahead shot, engaging in some spirited exchanges before laying down Herrera for good at 1:17 of the sixth frame.

With the win Burgos retained his WBC Cabofe Featherweight title.

Herrera Decisions Pendarvis In Eight.

On the co-featured bout, local Super Lighweight favorite Mauricio ''El Maestro'' Herrera (13-0, 6KOs) passed his stiffest test to date, winning a war against skilled southpaw Cleotis ''Mooki'' Pendarvis (10-2-1, 3KOs) at the end of eight.

Figuring the tricky Pendarvis through the first couple of rounds, and seeing he could withstand his opponent's sharp shots, the stronger Herrera would slowly walk down and engage Pendarvis in some heavy trading in the inside against the ropes throughout the bout on his way to winning a close 76-76, 77-75 and 79-73 majority decision.

On the undercard, Bantamweight dynamo Jonathan ''Lil Thunder'' Arellano (4-0, 1KO) , a dead ringer for a very young Arturo Gatti went into a frenetic punch-a-thon against Adrian Aleman (6-6-4, 3KOs) for four rounds, winning via 40-36 (twice) and 39-37 unanimous decision.

Super Welterweight Alberto Herrera (Mauricio's brother) remained undefeated at 4-0 with 3KOs after scoring a freak TKO in the fourth round, following a slip by Bazille which injured his left knee in the fourth round.

The southpaw Bazille also lost a point in the 1st round for repeatedly hitting on the back and was taken on a stretcher to a hospital for the injury.

Heavyweight William Williams dropped Gabriel Silva three times in the first round, with the stoppage coming in at 1:38 of the round.

In the first bout of the night, Lightweight Manuel Delcid won his pro debut by defeating Oscar Chinchilla (1-1) via a highly disputed 37-39, 39-37 and 37-39 at the end of four.
