Karim Mayfield Stops Steve Forbes in Ten Rounds

By Chris LaBate

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.

stoppage wasn't the most deserved - forbes was still slipping and weaving on the ropes perfectly conscious, lucid, and aware. mayfield looked similar to hatton with his technique on the inside. you can tell he has picked up some tools…
