Photos: Ola Afolabi Beats Down Caputo Smith

Madison Square Garden, New York City - Cruiserweight contender Ola Afolabi stopped Anthony Caputo Smith after the third round of a scheduled 10 round bout. Afolabi (21-3-4, 10 KOs) could not miss as he repeatedly landed vicious hooks and right uppercuts to Smith's head and body. Photos by Mike Stobe/Ed Muholland.

By the midway point of the second round, Smith's (15-4, 10 KOs) face was reddened by the number of punches that landed and he had a cut over his left eye. It got worse for Smith as midway through the third round, he was dropped by a left hook to the head.

To his credit, Smith fought back, but the rally was short-lived as he was knocked down again, courtesy of a left-right combination to the head. After the bell sounded, the ringside physician told referee Steve Smoger to stop the bout to prevent Smith from receiving further punishment.
