Right hand just misses for Terry again. Terry seems to be finding his range as right hands and kicks seem to all be finding the mark. Right hand foillowed by a left both land for Terry. Outside leg kicks and right hands land. And then a MONSTER right hand lands for Terry putting Thornburg to sleep. That's the fight, folks. It was timed beautifully off of Thornburg's jab.
