HIDALGO, TEXAS--WBO interim featherweight champion Juan Manuel Marquez bucked a tough and spirited challenge by Filipino Jimrex Jaca, stopping the latter in the ninth round following a big left in their scheduled 12-rounder.
Marquez was cut over his right eye, and blood kept oozing profusely as Jaca tried to take advantage of the cut. However, a big Marquez left sent the Filipino for the full count at the 2:48 mark, allowing Marquez to retain his title.

"Jaca showed tonight that he is such a durable fighter, and someone who has a great promise as a young fighter. He gave Marquez a great fight, and HBO was happy with Jaca's performance," said promoter Oscar De la Hoya.
