When the fight between Pablo Cesar Cano and Ruslan Madyiev was stopped between the fifth and sixth rounds, Cano sure looked like the loser.
Over the first four rounds, Cano, 28, of Tlanepanta, outboxed and outpunched Madyiev, 25, of Karaganda, Kazakhstan.
Cano moved forward behind a probing jab, hooking hard to the body and landing accurate combinations to the head.
It was an important victory for Cano (31-7-1, 21 KOs) who had been knocked out in his previous fight, in October 2017.
The elated Crews-Dezurn (4-1, 1 KO) won by 99-91 on two of the judges' scorecards, while the third judge handed in a controversial 95-95 score.
