In a welterweight showdown, Philadelphia's Lanard Lane remained undefeated (10-0, 7 KO's) after scoring a blazing 2nd round TKO over Said El Harrak (8-1, 3 KO's). Lane came out explosive in the 1st round and was relentless, throwing and landing right hand leads. El Harrak was looking to land his right, but never hit Lane flush. Lane connected with a series of rights and left hooks to the head. Then, Lane floored El Harrak with a hard overhand right. El Harrak was dazed, but continued to fight. El Harrak took another clean right from Lane. After that, Lane scored another knockdown when he connected again with his overhand right. Somehow, El Harrak managed to hold on and make it into round two. However, Lane would end it quickly. Early in the 2nd round, Lane utilized his jab. He continued to hit El Harrak with left hooks to the head and rights to the body. Next, Lane jabbed to the body and swifty fired another right to Harrak's head. As he lunged forward with a right and missed with a left hook, the referee stopped the fight at 1:38.
Showtime's Steve Farhood and Antonio Tarver felt that the referee had stopped the bout too soon. I disagree with them because Lane was repeatedly hitting El Harrak with very clean, accurate punches. Sometimes, a fighter can show great heart and a strong chin, but is still taking damaging shots. El Harrak was just getting hit too often and it was only a matter of time before Lane would be victorious.

Then, Guerrero trapped Nicklow in the corner and tagged him with brutal right hooks and straight lefts to the head. Nicklow had a durable chin, but it was getting tested often.
