Munguia landed more than three times the punches of his opponent, focusing on the body.

He dropped Cook (20-2, 13 KOs) with a body shot in Round 3 and continued with his attack along the ropes until referee Tony Weeks jumped in to end the fight.

“My last fight, I wasn’t focused enough for that fight but this time I was focused,” Munguia said. “I think I’m always looking for the knockout and that was part of the problem. Now, I focused a little bit more and you are seeing the results now.”
