  1. Main Undercard 9 p.m. ET / 6 p.m. PT (PPV) Live Results & Highlights

Co-Main Event: Erislandy Lara vs. Gary O’Sullivan – WBA Middleweight Title

Despite a courageous effort by O’Sullivan, the 39-year-old Lara felt no real threat of losing his WBA title in this match. By the fourth round of the fight, Lara was picking his opponent apart and scored a massive knockdown from a piston like straight left. In the following rounds, Lara looked relaxed as he landed smooth combinations and continued to hurt O’Sullivan.

O’Sullivan was able to land a few returning punches as Lara began to open up, but the effort was utterly futile. At the end of round-7 O’Sullivan was once again hurt from another hard left hand but was saved by the bell. To start the eighth round, Lara landed one more big straight left that buckled O’Sullivan’s legs. At this point, the referee stepped in and stopped the fight.

The official stoppage came at 0:23 of the eighth round.

Lara was able to retain his 160-pound WBA title and improve his record to 29-3 (17 KO). Meanwhile, O’Sullivan recorded his 5th loss in 36 fights.
