Saturday July 30
Leo Santa Cruz vs Carl Frampton
SHO / BoxNation (UK), 9 p.m. ET, Leo Santa Cruz vs Carl Frampton, Mikey Garcia vs Elio Rojas, Tony Harrison vs Sergey Rabchenko. Santa Cruz-Frampton is, like last weekend’s Crawford-Postol fight, a matchup that people actually want to see, or at least should want to see. Santa Cruz is established at featherweight, where he’s won a world title in a third weight class, while Frampton is coming up from 122, where he held two belts. This one is happening at a great time, each man is still unbeaten, both have been on good runs. Nothing to dislike here. Garcia will be fighting for the first time since January 2014, while Rojas, a former WBC featherweight titleholder, hasn’t fought since August 2014, so nobody should have any advantage there. Harrison-Rabchenko is a really interesting matchup at 154, and could go either way (by Scott Christ of Badlefthook)

PACMAN FAN! Flanagan stopped Magdaleno! ROUND 2 TKO! Retains his WBO Lightweight Title!

Terry “TURBO” Flanagan

Flanagan made quick work on this one and Magdaleno looked awkward. Flanagan delivered 3 knockdowns before the referee stepped in to stop the fight. The first knock down was a counter right hook to the face and looked like it was just a stinger. Magdaleno stood up but the beautiful left upper cut and a right hook with a flurry of punches sent the challenger Magdaleno to the canvas again. The Third knockdown looked like Magdaleno is just fighting out of instinct but Flanagan didn’t gave him any room as the referee stopped the bout at the 2:38 mins of round 2.

With the win Flanagan improved to 29 wins 12 KO no defeats. Magdaleno suffered his first stoppage, its quite weird because the stance of Magdaleno is too wide he actually slipped twice before the combination

Here is a replay of the full fight:
