Thurman drops, stops Lora in the sixth round
Undefeated welterweight prospect Keith Thurman dropped and stopped rugged veteran Orlando Lora in the sixth and round of the opening bout of HBO's Boxing After Dark broadcast from Cincinnati on Saturday.
Hard-hitting welterweight prospect Keith Thurman, of Clearwater, Fla., floored his rugged opponent and scored his seventh straight knockout at the 1:37 of the sixth round over Orlando Lora, of Culiacan, Mex., in Saturday night's HBO-televised undercard bout to the main event between former WBO junior lightweight beltholder Adrien Broner and Vicente Escobedo at U.S. Bank Arena in Broner's hometown of Cincinnati.
Lora's last loss was by unanimous decision to Malignaggi in October of last year.
