Edgar Berlanga continues first round knockout streak!
Rising unbeaten super middleweight prospect Edgar “The Chosen One” Berlanga (15-0, 15KOs) made quick work of overmatched veteran Lanell Bellows (20-6-3, 13KOs).
Looking to keep his streak first round knockouts intact, he came out just to do that! Shooting his jab, he immediately started stalking his opponent. Connecting with right and left hands, he almost immediately hurt Bellows. A few left and right hands later and the referee would jump in and call a halt to the action.
While his knockout streak is impressive, it is time for Berlanga to step up his competition. It is hard to grasp where he truly is in terms of his actual progression. The true test will come when he steps his competition and is tested by a fighter that will not fold under his power.
