After Montiel knocked out Mr. Unbeatable (9-9-2) in round 7 of their BW clash, Montiel sat at ringside to view the Frankie Skipton vs. Roger Mayweather for the vacant BW title.
From the start of the fight, it seemed liek Skipton was too small and was overmatched vs. Roger Mayweather who was bigger and more skilled. Mayweather put a beating on Skipton and knocked him out late in the fight. It was clear that Skipton, a natural Flyweight, had no business at 118.
Montiel vs. Mayweather was immideatly signed after the fight.
Montiel is an old vet, a former 3x champion, who's been around for a long time and has fought nothing but the best throughout his career. He understands the challenge that the cocky Mayweather presents and is prepared to leave it all in the ring. This will probably his last chance. A loss could be the end for Montiel...a win puts him back on top.
