HBO Boxing After Dark – Only 1 Round Needed

In the final HBO telecast of the year, Boxing After Dark provided us with a spectacular evening of explosive boxing. In the main event, power punching Columbian Edison Miranda (27-1, 24KOs) needed just the first round and 12 punches to dispose of William Gibbs (20-2, 16KOs). Miranda, who is in the same division as Jermaine Taylor and Winky Wright, said that he would also end a potential match with Taylor just as quick as this fight tonight. Miranda dedicated this fight to fellow countryman Carlos Quintana who recently lost to Miguel Cotto.

In what was an explosive undercard fight, Jose Hernandez (22-3, 14KOs) took on American prospect Jason “The American Boy” (21-1, 18KOs) Litzau. In the first round, Litzau, who was a big favorite to win, controlled the pace of the fight, tagging Hernandez with combinations and repeated left hooks. As the round was coming to an end, Hernandez landed a straight right hand which sent Litzau to the mat. Litzau survived the round, but not before taking punishing shots from Hernandez.

The next seven rounds were dictated by Litzau causing major swelling and bleeding in Hernandez. At times, Litzau boxed great and threw punishing combinations, but his defense was missing.

Just as Hernandez looked like he was going down, he landed a crushing overhand right hand presenting Litzau the first loss of his career. The KO came at 2:52 of the 8th round.
