Showtime’s quaruple-header on Saturday evening from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, produced plenty of action. Fight fans didn’t see any knockouts, but they did see plenty of fighters hitting the canvas.
Right here, you can check out the videos of all of the knockdowns which were scored, including Anthony Dirrell knocking down Sakio Bika, Erislandy Lara knocking down Austin Trout, and Zab Judah knocking down Paulie Malignaggi.
Bika is as tough as they come, but Dirrell was able to tag him and send him down to the canvas. The two would end up fighting to a draw, a decision neither man was happy with.
Erislandy Lara dominated Austin Trout, but most of the fight was fairly devoid of action. But then Lara scored a big knockdown in Round 11 against Trout, punctuating his wide decision victory and offering a nice highlight and moment of action for the crowd.
In the Judah vs. Malignaggi fight, Judah was credited with a knockdown in Round 2. The two fighters were clearly tangled up, but nevertheless, a punch landed and Malignaggi’s glove hit the canvas.
Stay tuned for more post-fight coverage, aftermath and analysis on the Judah vs. Malignaggi results and all of the bouts from this weekend.
