Canelo becomes undisputed super-middleweight champion

Canelo def. Plant via TKO at 1:05 of the eleventh round to become the undisputed super-middleweight champion. 

The beginning of the end started with a flush right hand from Canelo. He followed it up with three-punch combination to the body. Those blows took an effect on Plant as he looked hurt and that's all Canelo needed to see.

A left hook wobbled Plant and then a violent right and left uppercut sent Plant to the canvas. Plant walked it off and appeared to be ok. Not for long. Canelo smelled blood. He missed a left hook. But he didn't miss with a straight right followed by a left, and a straight right to the body sent Plant down one last time and we have the first-ever undisputed super-middleweight champion in the four-belt era.

It's almost time for Canelo vs. Plant. 

Anthony Dirrell scores vicious KO over Marcos Hernandez

Dirrell def. Hernandez via knockout at 0:22 of the fourth round.

After a lackluster opening three rounds, Dirrell woke the crowd up. They were standing in the middle of the ring when Dirrell wound up and blasted a right uppercut for the ages to send Hernandez to the canvas. Hernandez made it up but was on very wobble legs. That was all the referee needed to see and waved it off. 

A backflip for good measure from Dirrell as he gets a much-needed win. 

Co-main event

It's time for the co-main event as Anthony Dirrell (33-2-2, 24 KOs) meets Marcos Hernandez (15-4-2, 3 KOs) in super-middleweight action.

Dirrell, a former WBC super-middleweight champion, is coming off a stoppage loss to David Benavidez and a draw with Kyrone Davis in his last two fights.

Hernandez is designed to be a punching bag to get Dirrell back on track. Let's see what happens. 

Rey Vargas cruises to decision win

Vargas def. Baez via unanimous decision (100-90, 100-90, 99-91).

It was all Vargas. He could have ended the fight at any time. It's understandable that he wanted to get rounds in the bank since he fought for the first time since July 2019. 

Baez showing a ton of heart

Vargas is up by a wide margin through seven but that hasn't stopped Baez from marching forward and giving it everything he has. Vargas needs to be careful. A desperate fighter is when they are at their most dangerous.

Rey Vargas in control

Through four rounds, and it's all Rey Vargas. He's popping the jab with ease, showing excellent footwork in slipping in and out of shots and working the body well. Baez' left eye is cut and bloody. Shouldn't last too much longer. 

Adblock test (Why?)
