World rated jr middleweight Daniel Dawson (34-1, 23 KOs) stopped Ariel Gerado Aparicio (26-9, 10 KOs) in round three at the Italian Club, Perth, Western Australia on Sunday. Dawson attacked his opponent from the opening bell scoring with effective head and body shots that had the South American visibly hurt. A power body shot dropped Aparicio in round two and shortly after a punch below the belt dropped him for a second time. Referee Brad Vocale gave the visitor time to recover and at the bell both boxers were connecting with hard head and body shots. Dawson dropped Aparicio again in round three from accurate combination to the head and the referee crowned the Australian at 37 seconds of the round. Dawson captured the IBF Pan Pacific jr middleweight title. He was also defending the PABA title.
