Round 1: Herb Dean is our referee. Both fighters staying patient to open the round. McDonald initiates first and misses wildly. McDonald charges forward with power shots but nothing lands cleanly. Torres backs off, then lunges in with a left hook. Torres slips, counters, and McDonald circles away. From out of nowhere, McDonald rockets a massive pair of counter uppercuts and Torres instantly drops! He's out! McDonald rushes in and unloads a few more shots before Dean stops the action. What an impressive performance from the 21-year-old.
