VIRGIL HILL RETAINS WBA LIGHT HEAVYWEIGHT TITLE

Virgil Hill retained his World Boxing Association light heavyweight title for the sixth time, stopping former sparring partner Joe Lasisi in the seventh round Saturday.

Hill, 25-0, landed two hard left hooks to the head of the charging Lasisi in the seventh round to stagger the challenger, then unleashed a flury of lefts and rights. The referee stooped the bout with 1:56 left in the round.
