Las Vegas:

Juan Manuel Marquez and Carlos Hernandez became IBF champions on Saturday night. Marquez used quick combinations and surprising power to stop four-time champion Manuel Medina at 1 minute, 18 seconds of the seventh round at Mandalay Bay to win the vacant featherweight championship. Hernandez won the junior lightweight championship on a unanimous decision over David Santos in a fight stopped at 2:52 of the eighth round because of a deep gash around Santos' right eye. (AP)
