A year and a half after originally being scheduled to fight for the WBC Super Lightweight Championship, Kostya Tszyu and Miguel Angel Gonzalez finally square off for the vacant title. Gonzalez starts well in the opening round before Tszyu starts catching him with big shots in the second. Referee Frank Santore Jr. docks Gonzalez a point for repeatedly using his shoulder against Tszyu in the fourth round. In the fifth, Tszyu hurts Gonzalez with a straight right hand that wobbles him into the ropes and proceeds to tear into him. He snaps Gonzalez's head back against the ropes with vicious left hooks to end the seventh. After Tszyu staggers him into a corner early in the tenth, Gonzalez's corner finally stops the massacre.

Tszyu needs to tighten up his defense, hopefully he has worked on that before this fight.

Round 1: Belongs to Gonzalez, everything that landed that round was by him. Angel landed several good body shots and couple low blows, he also was the only one that landed upstairs. 10-9 Gonzalez.

Round 2: Kostya lets his hands go, and lands with big shots almost at will. Tszyu rocks Gonzalez with a huge right hand, they fall into a clinch and Gonzalez intentionally butts Tszyu clear as day, to which the ref only gives Angel a stern warning. 10-9 Tszyu.

Round 3: Tszyu controlling the round with his jab and big right hand. Gonzalez does manage to land a couple shots to the body, and a couple looping right hands. 10-9 Tszyu.

Round 4: Gonzalez does land a couple real decent shots to the head and body, but the round is again controlled by Tszyu's big right hand which rocks Angel whenever it lands. The ref finally had enough of MAG's constant low blowing, headbutting & shouldering and deducts a point for the latter. 10-8 Tszyu.

Round 5: Gonzalez is still trying to work that body to some success, but Tszyu is still tattooing him with that huge right hand whenever he feels like it. Tszyu gets mad about a flagrant low blow that goes unnoticed by the ref and steps in and delivers a huge 1-2 that rocks Gonzalez to his toes. Tszyu batters MAG for the rest of the round, looking like he has him out on his feet ore than once, and gets as close to a 10-8 round as you can get without a KD. Gonzalez gets in 1 more intentional low blow before the end of the round that apparently shows the ref he's still in the fight, but draws no warning or loss of point. 10-9 Tszyu.

Gonzalez again lands some decent shots, and another low blow, Tszyu spends the last half of the round battering Gonzalez around the ring again. 10-9 Tszyu.

Round 7: Gonzalez lands yet another low blow and gets yet another warning, he lands a couple decent rights that appear to freeze Tszyu. He lands low again, and the ref again does nothing. Tszyu steps in and lands two left hooks that about sends Gonzalez's head into the third row. 10-9 Tszyu.

Round 8: Tszyu spends the majority of the round battering Gonzalez around the ring when he's not getting hit low. 10-9 Tszyu.

Round 9: All Tszyu, this fight could have been stopped anytime from the fifth round on. 10-9 Tszyu.

Round 10: Gonzalez's corner finally has seen enough, and stops the fight after much more punishment then their guy needed to take. Terrible job by the ref in this fight, if Tszyu had more of a temper this one could have gotten way out of hand.
