Middleweight – Anthony Mundine beat Bronco McKart by TKO 7 / 10 – Time: 2:04 – Vacant IBF North American middleweight title
Australia’s Anthony Mundine (44-4, 26KO) impressed in his American debut tonight, taking seven rounds to knock out the tough but overmatched Bronco McKart (54-10-1, 32KO). Mundine came to the ring escorted by Native American dancers and his father, former middleweight contender Tony Mundine. With very little time for feeling out, McKart began applying pressure in the first round, while Mundine landed lead right hands on the Michigan southpaw. – The pattern continued in the second, and in the third Mundine put McKart against the ropes for periods, firing combinations. The fighters began to exchange in the fourth and “The Man” got the better of it, ripping combinations to the head and body of his veteran opponent. In the fifth and sixth Mundine alternated between throwing stinging combinations and wasting time, even clowning. The Australian caught McKart behind the ear with a clubbing left hook to start the seventh, sending him to the canvas. With plenty of time to go in the round, Mundine jumped on his wounded rival, knocking him down again with a roundhouse right against the ropes. – The official stoppage came shortly after, at 2.04 of round seven, with McKart’s corner throwing in the towel in response to a series of Mundine uppercuts.

Light welterweight – Amir Khan lost to Danny Garcia by TKO 4 / 12 – Time: 2:28 – WBC light welterweight title (supervisor: Alberto Guerra) – WBA Super World light welterweight title (supervisor: Aurelio Fiengo)
Super middleweight – Fernando Guerrero beat Jose Medina on UD 10 / 10
By Boxing Clever – Amir Khan admits he only has himself to blame after suffering a crushing fourth-round stoppage defeat to massive underdog Danny Garcia in Las Vegas. – Khan was floored three times as American Garcia exploited the Englishman’s naive tactics to keep his WBC light-welterweight title and snatch his opponent’s WBA belt. – Khan was taken to hospital for precautionary scans after the devastating loss, which was his second in succession after Lamont Peterson’s tainted win over him last December.
“It wasn’t my night,” admitted the Bolton fighter.
“After watching the replays a little bit I thought I was coming in with my hands down and Danny took advantage.
“I respect Danny, he was countering very well against me.”
“We got a little complacent and he took advantage and he caught me,” he said of Garcia’s decisive left hook that sent him down for the first time. – “I was a little surprised the referee stopped it. I thought he was going to let us continue. My mind was clear and I thought my legs were okay but I respect the referee, the judges and the commission, maybe they made the right call.”
Khan, now 26-3 with 18 early wins and two stoppage defeats, hinted he may have taken Garcia lightly. – His tactics backed that up as he tore at his opponent from the opening bell before becoming embroiled in a war which he lost spectacularly. – Khan, who had perhaps naively talked about fighting Floyd Mayweather in the near future, had the WBA belt he lost to Peterson returned to him this week but lost it again to Garcia at the Mandalay Bay Events Center.

Haye dropped him again with his follow-up barrage and the bout was waved off by referee Luis Pabon. Time was 2:59.
