After another brief takedown from Stahl, Ponzinibbio went back to work with a heavy jab, eventually bringing blood from Stahl’s nose. He opened up anytime he caught Stahl against the fence. Finally a massive right hand dropped Stahl against the cage and Herb Dean leapt in to put a stop to the action.
