WBC middleweight titlist, Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (44-0-1, 31 KOs) stopped Peter Manfredo Jr. (37-7, 20 KOs) in the fifth round of their scheduled twelve at Reliant Arena in Houston, Texas.
After a solid fourth round for the challenger, Chavez landed a right hand behind Manfredo’s ear in the fifth that sent the Providence, RI native wobbling to the ropes. Smelling blood, Chavez jumped on Manfredo and fired a barrage of punches that convinced referee Laurence Cole to step in and stop the bout at the 1:52 mark.
