July 4th 2019 in Aabenraa (DNK)
Mikkel Nielsen (DNK) vs. Jose Luis Rodriguez Guerrero (MEX)
GBU INTERCONTINENTAL TITLE
Welterweight: 66,68 kg / 147 lbs
Jose Luis Rodriguez Guerrero upset Mikkel Nielsen and won the vacant GBU intercontinental title with a hard-fought unanimous ten round decision.
It was scored 95:94 on all scorecards and that was a bit generous to the Dane.
Guerrero had a point deduction in the seventh round for repeated low blows.
It was a tough fight, at times a war in which Nielsen was punched out and hurt by strong hits but always fighting back with blood from a cut over his left eye smeared out on his face.
Winner by UD and new GBU intercontinental welterweight champion:
Jose Luis Rodriguez Guerrero
