Super Middleweight Bout (12 Rds)

Mikkel Kessler (44-2, 33 KOs) wins by TKO at 2:25 of the sixth round over Mehdi Bouadla (22-4, 10 KOs)

In the third round, Bouadla got dropped with a right (up at the count of three). The fight didn't resume as there

was a brief time out to get the mouthpiece of Bouadla that he spit out - and just before they restarted, the ref

penalized Bouadla a point for spitting out his mouthpiece. The fight finally resumed and Kessler pounced on

Bouadla, punishing him until the round ended. In the fourth round, Bouadla downed at the end of the round.

In the sixth round, Bouadla downed with a left hook (up at the count of five). The fight resumed and Kessler

landed two punches to the body and two right hooks up top - the last right hook put Bouadla down and the

ref had seen enough and stopped the bout.
