Minnesota's own Caleb Truax put up his gloves on national television as ESPN2's "Friday Night Fights" was at the Minneapolis Convention Center for Truax's bout against Donovan George.

Truax delivered a crushing blow to the chin of George for a sixth-round knockout -- and fans could see it coming the entire fight.

After feeling out George the first two minutes of the first-round, Truax delivered right hand after right hand to George's chin, putting the Convention Center crowd in a frenzy in the final 60 seconds of the first.

In an interview with KFAN-FM 100.3 earlier this week, Truax said he would be able to take advantage of George's aggressive style and catch him with counter-punches.

As it turned out, the Osseo native wound up being the aggressor. He visibly shook George with powerful right hands again and again in the second and third rounds -- landing 23 of 45 power punches in the third.

Rounds four and five weren't as dominant for Truax, but he wasn't a clear loser of either round.

Truax (22-1-1) became only the second man to knock George out.

BMTN's Rick Kupchella was at the bout and put together this ringside photo gallery.

As for a roundup of the fight, Fox 9 offered that "Truax was his cereberal self in his six-round knockout performance ... Truax peppered George for the majority of the six rounds before finally finishing him off with a devistating right hand that caught the Chicagoan behind the ear."

Fightnews.com says "Truax dominated from the start and a right to the ear finished George."

And BoxingNews24 says Truax "manhandled" George in a "surprise."
