Bantamweight prospect Dylan Price stopped journeyman Samuel Gutierrez in round 4 Saturday night at the Elevations Events Center in Chester, Pennsylvania.
Price, who resides in nearby Sicklerville, improves to 12-0 1 ND, 9 knockouts.
The scheduled six-round bout was a rematch of their July 2019 clash, which Price won by unanimous decision.
From the opening bell, Price was the aggressor, utilizing his speed to connect several two and three-punch combinations to the head of Gutierrez, who was game but was on the defensive for most of the fight. Early in round 3, a barrage of punches dropped Gutierrez to one knee. Gutierrez would beat the count, but his corner stepped onto the ring canvas, telling referee Shawn Clark to stop the fight and save Gutierrez from taking further punishment.
Time of the stoppage was 52 seconds.
Price, who had fought on a handful of Mayweather Promotions cards, has stopped four of his last five opponents.
Gutierrez drops to 16-30-6, 6 KOs. The 32-year-old from Saltillo, Mexico, has now lost 10 of his last 11 bouts.

Bunch (11-1, 10 KOs) has now won his last eight bouts.
