By Francisco Salazar

Mohegan Sun, CT. - If junior middleweight Patrick Day was brought in as an opponent for Virgilijus Stapulionis to look good against Saturday night, he must have not seen that memo.

Day dropped Stapulionis once in route to a 10 round unanimous decision at the Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, Connecticut.

With the win, Day improves to 13-2-1, with 6 KOs. Stapulionis falls to 27-4-1, 19 KOs.

The bout headlined the first in a series of fight cards presented by Main Events at the Mohegan Sun.

Stapulionis, who is originally from Lithuania and now lives and trains in Oxnard, Calif., entered the bout unbeaten in six bouts. Day was coming off a six round decision over Courtney Pennington on April 23.

Heavyweight Cassius Chaney (8-0, 5 KOs) won by knockout after the second round when Carlos Sandoval did not answer the bell for round three. Referee Michael Ortega stopped the bout on the recommendation of the ringside physician. Sandoval falls to 9-12-1, 6 KOs.
