Abraham Han’s corner waived it off after Round 8 and Glen Tapia became the new titlist for NABO for ESPN2 Friday Night Fight co-featured light middleweight fight at the Texas Station Casino, Las Vegas.
It was a solid win for Tapia who scored a knockdown in Round 7. Referee Nady ruled it a knockdown when the ropes prevented Han from going down. Han beat the count and continue to fight, but the cut from the left side of his head was getting nasty.
At the start of Round 8 he seemed a finished fighter to me. And yes, after that round, Han did not answer the bell.
