Khan bruises Collazo for win

"He's a tough dude. It was a good fight," Love said. "He has a very awkward style. He hit me with a good shot and I knew it was smart to take that knee."

Love cut a tiring Periban by the left eye and had him in some trouble as the sixth round came to an end. Periban was fading and Love kept a hard jab in his face round after round.

Periban dropped to 0-2-1 in his last three, having lost a vacant super middleweight world title bout to Sakio Bika last June followed by a 10-round draw with Badou Jack in September.

• Las Vegas cruiserweight Andrew Tabiti (6-0, 6 KOs) stopped John Shipman (3-2, 2 KOs), of Amarillo, Texas, at 2 minutes, 11 seconds of the fourth round.

• Super middleweight Ronald Gavril (9-0, 7 KOs) of Las Vegas broke down Tyrell Hendrix (10-4-2, 3 KOs) of Los Angeles to score a knockout when referee Russell Mora called it off at 1 minute, 58 seconds of the fourth round.

• Middleweight Anthony Ogogo (6-0, 3 KOs), a 2012 Olympic bronze medalist who claimed his hardware in front of the London home crowd, dominated Jonuel Tapia (8-5-1, 5 KOs) of the Bronx en route to a third-round knockout. Ogogo put together a combination of punches and badly hurt Tapia in the third round, forcing referee Nady to intervene 46 seconds into the round of what was Ogogo's second bout in the United States.

• British welterweight Ashley Theophane (35-6-1, 11 KOs) dropped Angino Perez (15-5, 13 KOs) of Miami in the second round and stopped him on his feet in the third round when referee Kenny Bayless waved it off at 2 minutes, 44 seconds. Theophane bounced back from a split decision loss to Pablo Cesar Cano in September on the Mayweather-Canelo Alvarez undercard.

• Las Vegas super middleweight Lanell Bellows (7-1-1, 6 KOs) blew out Thomas Gifford (2-2-1, 1 KO), of Hot Springs, Ark., dropping him with a right hand in the first round and dropping him again with a clean right hand at 1 minute, 17 seconds of the second round. After the second knockdown, referee Jay Nady immediately stopped the fight without a count.

• Las Vegas cruiserweight Andrew Tabiti (6-0, 6 KOs) stopped John Shipman (3-2, 2 KOs), of Amarillo, Texas, at 2 minutes, 11 seconds of the fourth round.
