Undefeated IBF super featherweight champion Rances “Kid Blast” Barthelemy (21-0, 12 KOs) won a one-sided 12 round unanimous decision over Fernando David “El Vasco” Saucedo (52-5-3, 8, KOs) on Saturday night inside the Fox Theater at Foxwoods Resort Casino in Mashantucket, Connecticut.

Barthelemy outclassed Argentine veteran Saucedo from start to finish with all three judges scoring the fight 120-108.

The Cuban controlled the action with his jab and he simply couldn't miss with his left hand,  hurting Saucedo in the fifth round with that punch to the head. But he was never able to finish Saucedo, who never stopped coming forward, though the challenger had little success.
