Munguia struggled against his opponent’s sudden push, offering more movement and finishing the frame with an open mouth The 24-year-old took a deep breath and swayed out to start the sixth round

Johnson was a supporter of the cause, continuing to put good hands up on the floor Time was called with 0:21 in the round, as the ring doctor examined a grotesquely deep cut on the lip of Johnson caused by a vicious right uppercut by Munguia He was cleared to finish the frame, the fight stopped before the start of the seventh round
