The Commish says:

Andy Lee fought possessed, especially in that sixth round. Feeling the fight slipping away and not wanting to surrender any more rounds to Korobov, Lee stepped on the gas and beat Korobov in an exchange of right hooks. When Lee's landed and rocked Korobov, Lee showed a killer instinct which can't be taught. He unleashed a volley of around 20 punches at Korobov, prompting ref Kenny Bayliss to hand the highly-touted (but perhaps a bit overrated) Korobov his first loss and Lee a title which his late trainer Emanuel Steward had long said would be his one day.

Hail to the new WBO middleweight champ.
