ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. -- Mexico's Antonio Margarito retained his World Boxing Organization welterweight title Friday night, stopping Argentina's Sebastian Lujan in the 10th round at Boardwalk Hall.
Referee David Fields stopped the bout at 2:57 of the 10th round after ringside physician Dr. Eric Wurmser noticed that the top half of Lujan's left ear had been torn open and was hanging off.
"The cartilage around the entire rim of his ear came off," Wurmser said.
Lujan (22-2-1) left the ring with a towel draped over his head and was taken to Atlantic City Medical Center to receive stitches.
