but he barely won, and nearly got 'upset' by an 'unheralded' club-fighter.
Oscar improved to 27-1-0, and was holding a #14 Welterweight ranking.
I don't remember the Albarado/Durden fight, but Durden was a real good fighter, an excellent boxer that could whack some, the thing with him was that his chin didn't hold up at times....Muniz got him out in one or two rounds
