WBC lightweight champion Jorge Linares (39-3, 26 KOs) dominated Kevin Mitchell (39-3, 29 KOs) by a 10th round knockout stoppage. Mitchell dropped Linares in round five, but the champion came back strong to bust up Mitchell’s face. Mitchell suffered a cut over his left eye in the 7th round. Linare targeted the face and the cut where Mitchell couldn't see the right hands coming, and he was hit multiple times by Linares. Linares then staggered a bloody and battered Mitchell with a right hand, and then dropped him with a right hand after a flurry of punches. The referee then halted the fight after Mitchell got back up.
