Litzau beats Juarez on cards after cut

Litzau beats Juarez on cards after cut

Jason Litzau won a technical unanimous decision over fellow American Rocky Juarez on Saturday when a cut under Litzau's left eye ended the fight after the seventh round.
Sergio Mora also returned from a 19-month ring absence with a seventh-round stoppage of Calvin Green on the undercard of Bernard Hopkins' rematch with Roy Jones Jr. at the Mandalay Bay Events Center on Saturday.
Litzau (27-2, 21 KOs) outworked Juarez in the middle rounds but was cut by an unintentional head butt, referee Jay Nady ruled. When the ringside physician stopped the fight, Litzau had a two-round lead on one judge's scorecard and a 67-66 advantage on the other two cards.
Juarez (28-6-1) has won just one of his last five fights.
