Orangeville, Ontario's Logan McGuinness captured the vacant NABA super featherweight title with an impressive 11th round stoppage of former world title challenger Benoit Gaudet moments ago at the Hershey Centre in Mississauga, Ontario. Time of the stoppage was 1:56. Gaudet employeed the same strategy as in the Humberto Soto fight, constant movement, stopping only long enough to fire off a combination or two, before retreating. While not hurting McGuinness, it did pile up the points. McGuinness, cut over the left eye as early as round 2, was was forced to chase, trying to cut off the ring against his fleet footed opponent. McGuinness (16-0-1, 8kos) found success in the later rounds, coming out on top of most most exchanges and hurting a tiring Gaudet. McGuinness, behind on the scorecards, finally caught up to Gaudet (24-3, 10kos) in round 11, dropping him with a left hook. Gaudet was able to make it to his feet but in no condition to continue. Referee Dave Dunbar wisely stopped the contest giving McGuinness the biggest victory of his career so far.
