At the Frank Erwin Center in Austin, Texas, welterweight prospect Karim Mayfield (14-0, 9KOs) stopped former champion Steve Forbes (35-10, 11KOs) in the tenth round of a very ugly fight. Forbes stunned with a series of punches prior to the stoppage. The first time Forbes has been stopped a probably a good sign that he might need to hang them up. Forbes, a former lightweight champion, was unable to make the weight for this fight and came in weighing over 148-pounds and was forced to pay Mayfield as portion of his purse. It was Forbes' seventh loss in his last ten fights.
