Quite fitting for Hughes to begin his era of dominance with a knockout...by way of slam.
Hughes actually went out first, that was the whole reasoning for his dropping to the canvas, not to slam, but to sleep. Newton was robbed in that victory. I'm a huge Hughes fan and always have been but newton deserved the belt in that fight.
