Jaime Munguia retained his WBO light-middleweight title with a fourth-round TKO of Patrick Allotey at Dignity Health Sports Park in California on Saturday.
Munguia (34-0, 27 KOs) got off to a bit of a slow start as Allotey (40-4, 30 KOs) landed some solid shots in the first couple of rounds, but Munguia used his notable size advantage to overpower the Ghanaian.
The 22-year-old landed some body shots in the second round that had a clear effect on Allotey, and those culminated with two knockdowns in the third round.
Finally, in the fourth, Munguia knocked down Allotey with a solid body shot and the latter's corner called a stop to the fight a little more than two minutes into the fourth.
Munguia will now consider moving up in weight class to take on bigger and better fighters at middleweight.
