In a brutal fight, WBO #4 welterweight contender Joshua Clottey (31-2, 20 KOs) spoiled the welterweight debut of former two-division world champion Diego Corrales (40-5, 33 KOs), who was leaping two weight classes on Saturday night at the Shrine Mosque in Springfield, Missouri. Fighting in a proverbial phone booth, Clottey worked over Corrales in rounds one and two, bloodying Chico's nose and connecting with numerous uppercuts. Clottey continued to land clean shots in the third while Corrales had some success to the body. Clottey then seemed to slow down slightly and there was good two-way action in the fourth through seventh rounds. Clottey seemed to hurt Corrales at the end of the eighth round, and Clottey's violent attack in round nine floored Corrales and left him returning to his corner bleeding above the right eye. Clottey floored Corrales again in the tenth and Diego was docked one point for spitting out his mouthpiece by referee Mike England. Scores were 97-90, 98-89, 100-87.
