  Pacquiao Dominates & Stops Matthysse In 7  
Manny Pacquiao (60-7-2, 39 KO's) won the WBA Welterweight Title with his first stoppage victory in 9 years (2009 vs. Miguel Cotto) with a TKO in the 7th over Lucas Matthysse (39-5, 36 KO's). As soon as the first bell sounded Pacquiao was all over Matthysse. Pacquiao was first to land, last to land, in and out, he looked like his young self, making Matthysse look like the "old" one past his best tonight.

Pacquiao continued to dominate and dropped Matthysse in the 3rd with a perfect left uppercut on the chin through the guard. Matthysse would regain his senses and Pacquiao would remain calm, continuously picking him apart, round after round. At the end of round 5, following a quick left hook to the top of the head, Matthysse decided to take a knee, resulting in the second scored knockdown in the fight.

The end looked near as Matthysse looked like a broken down fighter. In round 7 Pacquiao kept on him with quick punches, scoring another one of those left uppercuts through the guard that dropped Matthysse for the third time in the fight. As referee Kenny Bayless continued the count, Matthysse spit out his mouthpiece in clear exhaustion which prompted Bayless to waive the fight off. Final time was 2:43.

  Union Laborers Joe Smith Jr. & Joe Farina
Define What It Means To Be A True Working Man
 
Like the boots they strap on to wear to work every morning and the boxing gloves they strap on to wear for training every night, both Joe Smith Jr. and Joe Farina know exactly what it means to put in a hard day's work.

Joe Smith Jr. resides in Mastic, Long Island. His days begin, while most others are sleeping, at the hour of 4:30 AM, and he is on the job site by 6:00 AM. Smith Jr. is a laborer for Union Local 66. Wielding a sledge hammer, busting through concrete, working on projects such as the LIJ hospital in Stony Brook, Smith Jr. puts in a full day's work, which is usually enough for an average person; however, Joe Smith Jr. is not that.
