UNCASVILLE, Conn., June 7 (UPI) -- Sergio Mora upset Vernon Forrest Saturday to take his WBC light middleweight title with a majority decision.

In his first fight at 154 pounds, Mora (21


1) won on two scorecards, 115-113 and 116-112, while the third scorecard had an even 114-114 draw. It was the third loss of his career for 37-year-old, defending champion Forrest (40-3).

In the first championship fight of the night, Paul Williams regained the WBO welterweight title by beating Carlos Quintana with a first-round TKO.

In early February, the 31-year old Quintana (25-2) earned a unanimous decision over Williams (34-1) to win the title and hand Williams the lone loss of his professional career in his first title defense.
