Titles at Stake:
WBO Lightweight Champion Oscar De La Hoya makes top billing in Madison Square Garden when he takes on Jesse James Leija. De La Hoya swings away at the smaller man and fells Leija twice with left hooks. Leija appears to beat the count after the second knockdown, but Referee Ron Tipton has seen enough and waves things off.
