Some solid action this weekend in boxing.
In a fight between two world champions with undefeated records, the championship bout more than lived up to the hype.
Texas World Champion boxer Brandon Figueroa in the super-bantamweight division impressed with a 7th round stoppage over previously unbeaten Luis Nery of Mexico.
Here is how he did it — in some style to be fair:

Very impressive indeed.
It gave Nery the first loss of his pro career but no doubt he can comeback.
This stellar American matchmaking of undefeated boxers is very enjoyable to see.
The win improved Figueroa’s record to 22-0-1 (17 KO).
Figueroa now holds the WBC and WBA Super World Super-Bantamweight titles.
He will look to add the WBO title next up against another unbeaten world champion.
When he takes on WBO champion Stephen Fulton (19-0-8 KO) of Philadelphia on September 11th.
