Miranda defeats Gibbs in one round

Litzau gets KTFO by Hernandez

Edison Miranda KO1 Willie Gibbs... Coming off a controversial lossn Germany in which he broke Arthur Abraham's jaw but dropped a decision, Edison Miranda knocked out Willie Gibbs in one round in Miami, proving his career would not be derailed by his only pro loss. The middleweight contender, who grew up homeless in Colombia, caught Gibbs with a punch to the top of the head that didn't appear all too solid, but nonethless left Gibbs clearly dazed. Gibbs went down near the end of the first round, but was so dazed he couldn't follow the referee's count, jumping up after the ten count insisting he was able to continue. After 21 wins over easy competition in Colombia, Miranda has improved to 28-1, proved he is a world-clss middleweight and remained in position for a rematch against Abraham for the IBF middleweight title. Gibbs drops to 20-2. source: HBO boxing after dark

The HBO Boxing After Dar opener was meant to be a coming out party for Litzau as a featherweight contender, but Hernandez flipped the script when Litzau refused to respect Hernandez's power. Hernandez improves to 22-3 while Litzau tastes defeat  for the first time in 21 pro outings. source: HBO boxing after dark
