Undefeated Abdin Stops Hinton
LAS VEGAS (AP) _ Undefeated heavyweight Ahmad Abdin, having fought his opponent to a draw 15 months ago, stopped Will Hinton in the fourth round Thursday night.
Abdin hurt Hinton with a right to the head and followed with a barrage of body blows that backed his opponent into the ropes. Referee Toby Gibson halted the scheduled 10-rounder at the Aladdin at 2:42 of the fourth.
Abdin, 234 pounds, a Syrian native who lives in Houston, improved his record to 21-0-3 with eight knockouts. Hinton, 230, of Aurora, Colo., dropped to 15-8-1, with seven knockouts.
Abdin was leading by three points on two of three judges’ scorecards and by one point on the other.
