But, "Wonder Boy" soon found his rhythm as he repeatedly jabbed Lineker and delivered his trademark knees to the belly. As the fight went on, Andrade continued to inflict painful punches on Lineker's face, causing injury. Lineker eventually felt the effects of the punishment, which prompted his corner to declare victory before to the start of the fifth round.
