Dennis McCann runs over John Chuwa in second round destruction
Rising bantamweight prospect Dennis “The Menace” McCann (10-0, 6 KO’s) kept his perfect record in place with his most recent victory. He was able to do this by stopping John “Ninja” Chuwa (20-5, 10 KO’s) in the second round of their prizefight. Prior to his most recent win McCann was already being touted as a serious up-and-coming boxer to keep an eye on.
The Menace garnered this accolades by putting together an impressive amateur record (50-4, 16 KO’s), winning a Bronze medal at the European Games and capturing nine amateur championships. While there is no guarantee that amateur glory will translate into professional dominance, McCann is certainly on the right track thus far.
Unfortunately for John Chuwa, it’s time to go back to the drawing board. This was his fifth professional loss and snapped a three-fight win streak for him.
SHORT NIGHT IN THE OFFICE
Once in the ring, McCann was quickly able to demonstrate his greater skill and ability over Chuwa. Yet things swiftly progressed from bad to much worse for the Tanzanian fighter. In the second period, the Menace was able to crack Chuwa in the mouth with a hard, straight left which sent him backpedaling into the ropes.
Seeing that his man was hurt, McCann wasted no time in swarming the Ninja with blows. On the one hand, McCann did connect with a number of clean shots in his barrage, although none of them were especially devastating. Despite this fact, Chuwa was stumbling all around the ring and doing an abysmal job of defending himself. In fact, with the way his arms were flailing around, Chuwa looked more like a person drowning than a professional fighter.
Unable to turn a blind eye to the obvious peril that Chuwa was in, referee Lee Every jumped in to stop the assault.
