Sylvester stops Lyell in middleweight title fight

Sebastian Sylvester of Germany stopped Billy Lyell of the United States in the 10th round to retain his IBF middleweight title on Saturday.
Lyell's corner threw in the towel after Sylvester landed a hard right to the American's chin and followed through with more shots to Lyell's head and body.
Sylvester's first defense of the title improved his record to 33-3. Lyell fell to 21-8.
Lyell was a late replacement for Pablo Navascues of Spain, who was suspended after failing a drug test.
