Updated: July 17, 2010, 23:11


COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo.(AP) Two-time Olympian Rau'shee Warren has won his fourth national title, stopping Miguel Cartagena of Philadelphia in the second round of their 114-pound bout.

The headliner of the US Boxing national championships, Warren was up 19-1 Saturday night when Cartagena's corner called things off following his third standing eight-count.

Warren, a 23-year-old from Cincinnati, said afterward, "I'm back!'' He looked toward the heavens after the fight in a mixture of relief and redemption.

Warren, who won titles in 2005-07 with bookend triumphs at the U.S. Olympic trials in 2004 and '08, lost on a tiebreaker in last year's semifinals.
