Clay Collard continued his amazing run in the sport of boxing this past weekend, as the former UFC fighter improved to 5-0 on the year with a second-round TKO over Maurice Williams in Las Vegas.

Collard (9-2-3, 4 KOs) started the year with three wins over previously undefeated prospects and has since scored two more victories. One of those victories was on ESPN over highly-regarded David Kaminsky on June 18.

David Benavidez may no longer be the WBC super middleweight champion of the world, but he is still one of the most formidable fighters in whatever weight division he ends up moving forward in.

Benavidez lost his title on the scale on Friday, coming in nearly three pounds over the super middleweight limit of 168 pounds, yet he still dominated Alexis Angulo in the main event of a SHOWTIME telecast from the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncassville, Conn., presented by Premier Boxing Champions.

During his short time on earth, Day accomplished a lot and inspired many. Day, a native of Freeport, New York, was both a decorated amateur, as well as a fearless professional who constantly challenged himself in the ring.
