WBC/WBO junior welterweight champion Jose Ramirez successfully defended his titles by beating mandatory challenger Viktor Postol (31-3, 12 KOs) via majority decision, Boxing Scene reports.

The judges' scores were 114-114, 115-113, and 116-112.

It was a competitive battle with both sides throwing tons of punches. Postol was relying on his jabs while Ramirez was trying to work at the close range. Both fighters were able to keep up the high pace which was clearly showcased in the twelfth round.

Nevertheless, it was Ramirez who left the ring with two world titles on that night. The judges' decision has generated a lot of controversy among the fans and boxing experts.
