It was quite the interesting night at the fights this weekend in Las Vegas.

Brandon Rios got the win over Diego Chaves, but it was marred by all sorts of fouls and poor officiating.

Sergey Kovalev took care of business in emphatic fashion once again in Atlantic City, successfully defending his light heavyweight championship for a third time. With the win, he advances to a fall unification showdown against Bernard Hopkins.
