  Saunders Schools Lemieux Through 12  
Billy Joe Saunders (26-0, 12 KO's) retained the WBO Middleweight Title with a completely one-sided 12-round unanimous decision over David Lemieux (38-4, 33 KO's). This was a classic Boxer vs. Puncher, where Saunders boxed from a distance, constantly moving around Lemieux who could not find a punch to land the entire night. Saunders staggered and hurt Lemieux in the 7th and looked like he could have scored a knockdown, but played it safe and continued to embarrass him for the rest of the fight. Final scores were 120-108 and a shocking 118-110 and 117-111 cards because they managed to find two and three rounds to give Lemieux who appeared to have won none. After the fight, Saunders called out Gennady Golovkin.

Gary O'Sullivan (27-2, 19 KO's) stopped Antoine Douglas (22-2-1, 16 KO's) in the 7th round with a brutal knockout. Both men were trading shots from the opening bell, so it was only a matter of time before one of them was on the canvas. Douglas would land flush left hooks to the head of O'Sullivan, who would return fire right big rights flush on the chin of his own. Douglas would take one too many of those rights through the fight as one completely froze him against the ropes in round 7, to which O'Sullivan followed up with a barrage of left and rights as Douglas fell to the canvas. Douglas did manage to beat the count, but did not have a good look on his face and the fight was rightfully waived off at 1:03.

Yves Ulysse Jr. (15-1, 9 KO's) welcomed previously unbeaten Cletus Seldin (21-1-1, 17 KO's) to the big leagues with a one-sided 10-round unanimous decision. This was a rude awakening for Seldin, who was put on the seat of his pants once in each of the first three rounds. Ulysse boxed circles around Seldin, who often complained to the referee because he wasn't standing still to be hit. Final scores were 120-108, 118-110 and 117-111. Much like the Saunders/Lemieux main event, there didn't appear to be a single round Seldin won.
