Saul Alvarez vs. Ryan Rhodes
In the first defense of his WBC Super Welterweight Championship, Saul Alvarez batters game challenger Ryan Rhodes over twelve rounds. After taking an accumulation of punishment in the fourth, Rhodes wobbles and falls to the canvas. A left hook from Alvarez opens a cut under his right eye in the seventh. With Rhodes taking hard shots and wobbling again early in the twelfth, Referee Hector Afu stops the one-sided bout just as the challenger's corner is throwing in the towel.
