By Nicholas Samuilov, notifight.com

Caseros, Buenos Aires, Argentina - Lightweight prospect Hernan "Lefty" Carrizo (12-0-1, 6KOs) stopped Sergio "Loco Lima" Escobar (15-15-2, 4KOs) in the fifth round of their rematch. They previously fought to a four round draw on May 15, 2010 at Luna Park Stadium. Carrizo started much faster in the rematch, landing hard right hands to the jaw of Escobar. After four rounds of sound punishment, Escobar remained on his stool when the bell was rung to initiate the start of round five. The referee counted Escobar out and declared Carrizo the winner by knockout.
