Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas - Lightweight contender John Molina (26-3, 21KOs) pulled a rabbit out of his hat and knocked out previously undefeated Mickey Bey (18-1-1, 9KOs) in the tenth and final round. Molina was way behind on the cards after being outboxed by the faster Bey. Molina was missing all night long, but he finally caught Bey in the final round to stun him bad - and then unloaded with a massive amount of punches to force the referee to jump in as Bey was out on his feet. The scores at the time of the stoppage were 90-81, 89-82, 88-83 - all for Bey.
