Nishioka, Gonzalez retain title belts

WBC super-bantamweight title holder Toshiaki Nishioka set up a possible defence against unified bantamweight champion Nonito Donaire after securing his belt for the sixth time in Las Vegas against Mexican Rafael Marquez.

The 35 year-old scored his 39th career win in 46 contests with a unanimous decision triumph as the judges gave him the bout 117-111, 116-112 and 115-113 to improve his Nevada record to three out of three.

Also on the MGM Grand bill, Roman Gonzalez retained his WBA light-flyweight title with a second round stoppage win over Omar Soto. The 24 year-old two-weight world champion had too much power for the older Mexican and took him out with minimal fuss early in the second session.
