Christopher Martin, an unbeaten featherweight prospect from the San Diego area, defeated Charles Huerta by a close, but unanimous decision Friday in Costa Mesa, Calif.
The judges scored it 99-91, 96-94 and 96-94 in Martin’s favor but some in the crowd thought Huerta should’ve received the nod.
Martin (22-0-2, 6 knockouts) has won 12 consecutive fights.
Huerta (16-3, 9 KOs) has lost two consecutive disputable decisions. He lost a split decision to Raul Hirales in an eight-round fight in January.
On the undercard, junior lightweight prospect Ronny Rios (14-0, 6 KOs) narrowly outpointed Georgi Kevlishvili (12-2, 3 KOs) in an eight-round bout.
