Using a picture-perfect straight left hand, Demond Nicholson brought the Du Burns crowd to its feet with an explosive first round stoppage of Lester Gonzalez.
Nicholson landed some solid shots throughout the contest but Gonzalez looked like someone who would keep coming forward. However, he came forward right into Nicholson's left hand and was dropped for the count. The bout was stopped at 2:14 of the first.
Nicholson is now 7-0, seven KO's. Gonzalez is now 12-15-4, six KO's.
We are now at intermission.
