John Riel Casimero drops Duke Micah in the third round.

The bantamweight titleholder stopped the game, but overmatched challenger Duke Micah in the third round on the pay-per-view doubleheader Saturday in Uncasville, Conn.

The fighters wasted no time getting at it, as the pace was fast from the opening bell.

Casimero (30-4, 21 KOs) seized control of the fight with a left hook that put Micah (24-1, 19 KOs) down about a minute into Round 2.

The Ghanaian hurt badly showed tremendous courage to survive the rest of the round — and actually fight back with some ferocity — but the end was near.

Casimero hadn’t fought for since last November when he stopped Zolani Tete to win his title. The Filipino now has six consecutive knockouts.
