A 7th round stoppage between Julio Cesar Chavez Junior and Andy Lee, following a barrage of punches and a heavy right uppercut, saw Chavez Junior keep his WBC World Middleweight title.
Lee looked to have the upper hand early on in the fight, but it wasn't long before a taunting Chavez Junior took control of the ring putting Lee into retreat.
Of the stoppage, Chavez said "I began by studying him, I saw he had nothing, and I dove in."
It's set to be a bumper weekend for Irish sport as middleweight contender Andy Lee takes on the 45 - 0 - 1 Mexican might of Julio Cesar Chavez Junior.
The WBC World Middleweight Championship will be on the line, as the London-born, American-based Irishman gets his first shot at a World title.
