Paris stops Coleman with body shot in seventh round
Vernon Paris stopped Tim Coleman with the third of three vicious body shots 27 seconds into the seventh round of a scheduled 10-round junior welterweight bout Friday in Santa Ynez, Calif., on ESPN2.
Paris put Coleman down twice in the sixth round with lefts to the stomach, sending Coleman to his corner in pain at the end of the round. The winner then landed one more left to the gut, which forced Coleman to take a knee. The referee stepped in at that point and ended the fight.
The fighters engaged in unusually vicious trash talking before the fight, which seemed to motivate Paris (25-0, 15 knockouts).
