Alexis Arguello vs. Andrew Ganigan
WBC Lightweight Champion Alexis Arguello goes to war with the hard-hitting Andrew Ganigan in defense of his crown. Ganigan strikes first, flooring Arguello with a short left hand at the end of the first round. Arguello lands some big shots in the second, but Ganigan takes them and smiles before answering with his own. In the third round, Arguello drops Ganigan with a straight right hand, but the challenger jumps right back up to his feet and continues to slug it out for the remainder of the round, each man stunning the other. With his nose bleeding, Ganigan takes a hard left hook to the body and starts to sink to his knees when Arguello drills him with a right hand to the head to send the challenger collapsing under the ropes at the end of the fifth. Ganigan fails to even sit up before Referee Carlos Padilla counts him out.
