A boxing match between Jaime Munguia and Tureano Johnson was stopped in the sixth round Friday night after one of the fighters suffered a nasty laceration on the upper lip.
Johnson sustained the injury in an uppercut from Munguia, who was given the knockout victory when the fight was called off soon afterward. Munguia – the reigning WBO Intercontinental middleweight champion – is now 36-0.

Johnson is 21-3.
