DeJesus, who weighed in at 135 pounds to Lampkin's 132, floored Lampkin twice in the 1st round and again in the final round with powerful left hooks. Lampkin was up quickly all three times and took the mandatory eight count on his feet, but he was outpunched the whole way." -United Press International
