Aydin wins when Corley quits

In a jr welterweight bout, Selcuk Aydin (25-2, 18 KOs) won when former world world champion DeMarcus Corley (39-20-1, 23 KOs) quit after round four on Friday night at the Atatürk Spor Salonu in Tekirdag, Turkey. Aydin had started taking over the fight in the fourth round. Corley stated after the fight that he was losing and personally made the decision to quit, not his corner.
