Overall Summary:
In a super bantamweight bout, Victor Fonseca (17-0 9 KO's) remained unbeaten after stopping a tough Al Seeger (28-5, 22 KO's) in 9 rounds. In the first round, Seeger was the aggressor and put a lot of pressure on Fonseca. Then, the southpaw Fonseca started to dominate in the middle rounds. Seeger started to have trouble in getting his punches off first. This occurred for 2 reasons: First, Seeger brought his hands back low after unleashing a punch and it led to him getting hit often. Secondly, Fonseca was doing a nice job of keeping his lead foot (right foot) outside of Seeger's lead foot (left foot). As a result, Seeger was kept off balanced as Fonseca was able to constantly get into a better position to land his punches especially his straight left.

Seeger got a burst of energy in round six and started to get to Fonseca. Fonseca's punch output dropped and he started to look a little lackluster. Seeger closed the gap by keeping the pressure on and landed some solid straight rights. While Seeger started to take a few rounds, Fonseca was still landing some flush straight lefts to Seeger's face. In the 9th round, Fonseca found a home again for his straight left. A hard, straight left sent Seeger down and into the ropes. The referee immediately stopped the bout because Seeger was taking a lot of clean punches.
