Why Canelo's win hurts so much for GGG
The first two rounds of the fight were rather uneventful with both boxers failing to land any meaningful punches. The action lit up in the third round when Elorde decked his opponent with a powerful left hook. Sawangsoda made it back on his feet but he didn't stay upright for long as he was floored by another Elorde left hook. Gabriel "Flash" Elorde's grandson then went for the kill as he cornered the Thai fighter, unleashing another flurry of punches before ending the fight for good with a right straight.
Veteran Filipino referee Ver Abainza stopped the contest at 2: Sawangsoda suffered his third loss in 15 fights. Mthlane started well as he won all the first four rounds in all the three judges' score cards. However, Waseem picked up steam midway through the match and scored a knockdown in the 11th round. The two fighters exchanged heavy leather in the 12th round with Waseem getting the better of it. Mthlane was rocked in the final seconds of the match, which forced him to hold on to his opponent to survive.
