The Premier Boxing Champions event featured three world title fights in the stacked 154-pound division, a lineup including five fighters ranked in the top 10, and four in the top five.

The southpaw Lara used a precise jab to set up a sharp left hand in the sixth defense of his world title. The supreme technician, known for his elusiveness, put on a clinic as expected. He fought mostly in the pocket and picked apart the 2012 U.S. Olympian Gausha, a Cleveland native getting his first shot at a world title.

Lara landed 45 percent of his power shots and threw 200 more total punches in the bout that was scored 116-111 and 117-110 twice.
 
"We want to give a lot of credit to Gausha. He's an Olympian and he came to fight," Lara said.  "I take the rhythm of the boxing match and that's when I take over. He's fighting with the best in the division. He's not a stupid fighter, but he knew who he was facing today.

"I'm ready to box anyone that comes my way. I'm the best boxer at 154 pounds and I won't shy away from anyone that wants to fight me. I'll box whoever, just line them up. I'm not afraid. I have proven that I'm a true champion. I'll fight (Jermell) Charlo if I have to. We are friends, but business is business."

Lara looked like he didn't trained hard for that fight. He looks soft physically.

would hardly say dominated, he won by a couple rounds and scored a knockdown, what a horrible main.
