Glen Tapia, 21-1-(14), bombed out Keenan Collins, 15-9-3-(10), in front of his own fans at Ballys Casino in Atlantic City on Saturday night.
Tapia put the memory of his stoppage loss to James Kirkland firmly behind him by taking out Collins after 1.22 of the opener. Tapia wasted no time in hunting down his opponent, connecting with at least half a dozen punches before dropping Collins. Once upright Collins was pounded before a right uppercut dumped him on the canvas.
Collins bravely scrabbled to his feet but was punished again and again until the referee jumped in to stop the one sided onslaught.
