Giovanni Segura retained his WBO junior flyweight belt Saturday night in Mexicali, Mexico, when he knocked out Ivan Calderon for the second time in less than a year.

Segura, who improved to 27-1-1 with 23 KOs, knocked Calderon to the canvas with a body shot at 1:39 of the third round.

In their previous meeting in August, Segura, 29, stopped Calderon (34-2-1) in the eighth round. It was the Puerto Rico native's first loss and cost him the title he had held for three years.
