Machado vs Corrales – Puerto Rico Has a New Champion – HBO Boxing was at the Turning Stone Casino in Verona, New York on Saturday night with a main event that saw Puerto Rico’s Alberto Machado win a world title. Corrales lost the belt at the weigh-ins when he could not make the 130 pound weight limit after threee attempts so the belt was in play for Machado only. Machado made the most of his opportunity, surivivng an early storm and getting up off the canvas early to earn the late stoppage win. The co-feature bout saw former junior middleweight world champion Demetrius Andrade stay undefeated as he moved up to middleweight to face Alantez Fox.
