Fight was for the Interim Featherweight Title after the reigning champ, In-Jin Chi, was forced to drop out of his defense against Juarez due to an achilles tendon injury. Soto took the fight on 2 weeks notice. 
Soto was deducted one point for rabbit punching in round nine and another point in round ten.

Both fighters weighed in on the limit of 126 lbs.

Soto won it in last round!
By Mike Fitzgerald
The two points deducted from Humberto Soto from referee Tim Adams almost came back to haunt him. Going into the final round last night at the Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Illinois, Humberto Soto and Rocky Juarez were deadlocked on two of the three judges' scorecards. Both John McCarthy and Ken Morita had it even, while Tom Kaczmarek had Soto up by one point. Soto dug deep to take the final round on all three judges' cards, thus winning the bout by a razor-thin unanimous decision. Has Juarez won the last round, he would have been a majority decision victor.
