James Kirkland Wears Down and Stops Glen Tapia

Boardwalk Hall, Atlantic City - In a junior middleweight showdown, James Kirkland (32-1, 28KOs) made his return to the ring and stopped a previously undefeated Glen Tapia (20-1, 12KOs) in six rounds.

There were fireworks from the first round. Tapia was stunned and taking punishment in the second. Kirkland and Tapia traded moments in the third where they were able to stun each other. Tapia started bleeding from his nose and mouth in the third, but he was fighting his way out of trouble. Tapia appeared to be wearing down in the fourth and fifth rounds. Tapia was landing shots, but Kirkland took them well and kept coming. Both fighters had swelling eyes at this point.

The doctor nearly stopped the fight at the end of the fifth for Tapia, who was taking a lot of punishment and not throwing enough punches back. During the sixth, Kirkland continued to batter Tapia against the ropes until the referee jumped in to stop the match, with Tapia nearly out on his feet.

Tapia looked really good in the first round. But it was all over once he stepped foot into Kirkland's realm. Although I think he is going to get KO'd again against higher opposition, Kirkland tests hearts and eats them.
