In the semi-main event of the night at the Jackson County Expo in Central Point, Oregon, Seattle’s Rob Diezel (11-7, 3 KOs) won the WBU Pacific Northwest Jr. lightweight title, stopping Salem, Oregon’s Juan Jaramillo (10-14-2, 3 KOs) in the fifth round, claiming his third win over the Oregonian. Both fighters had their moments early in the fight with Diezel boxing well in the first two rounds and Jaramillo using his aggression to regain some momentum in the middle rounds. Diezel, who does well when allowed to sit back and counter, used Jaramillo’s aggression against him in the fifth, catching him with an uppercut as Jaramillo pressed, dropping him for a count. Jaramillo beat the count, but as the action was allowed to resume, Diezel pounced, unloading with a barrage along the ropes. Jaramillo’s corner called for a stoppage, giving Diezel the fifth round TKO win. Diezel’s other two wins over Jaramillo were both decisions
