Beltran thrashes Ao, WBO belt vacant

On Friday night, Raymundo Beltran (30-7-1, 18 KOs) made quick work of former two-time champ Takahiro Ao (27-4-1, 12 KOs) in the main event of Top Rank’s new boxing series on Tru TV.

Beltran, who failed to make weight on Friday, was not eligible to win the WBO lightweight title, and so even with the knockout over Ao, the belt will remain vacant.

After a competitive first round, Beltran floored Ao with a right hand in the second round.  Ao got to his feet but was in pretty bad shape and Beltran went in for the kill, eventually getting the stoppage win after a barrage of punches.
