Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. Stops Peter Manfredo in Five
Reliant Arena, Houston, Texas - WBC middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (44-0-1, 31KOs) stopped Peter Manfredo Jr. (37-7, 20KOs) in the fifth round. In the fifth, Chavez hurt Manfredo with a wicked counter right hand and then started battering him against the ropes. Referee Laurence Cole tried to give Manfredo time to recover but Manfredo did little to defend himself and he did not punch back, which promoted the Cole to step in. Prior to the stoppage, Manfredo put forth a good effort and made it a fight. Chavez retains his title for the first time.

I could see why the ref stopped the fight. Manfredo just stood there like a punching bag.Comment by rckdees on 11-20-2011
it was a bad stoppage. the ref couldn't wait to jump in and stop the fight. chavez jr. is truly a protected fighter. if he let a "c" fighter like manfredo back him up most of the fight, he shouldn't…Comment by Drunk Punch on 11-20-2011
Just as long as Chavez Jr doesn't start thinking he's a legitimate champion at MW yet. Fight Sergio or give the belt back to himComment by KickAzz on 11-20-2011
