Vito Mielnicki disposes of Noah Kidd in two rounds!
Once-beaten welterweight prospect Vito “White Magic” Mielnicki Jr (8-1, 5KOs) will return to the ring for the first time since suffering his first career defeat at the hands of James Martin back in April. The two were originally set to face off again in a rematch. However, Martin would come in overweight resulting, in new opponent Noah Kidd being brought in.
The New Jersey native starred as an amateur standout amassing a record of 137-20. He was a 4-time Junior Golden Gloves National Champion, 2-time Ringside World Champion, Silver Gloves National Champion and a 2017 USA National Champion.
Noah Kidd, a major underdog, came out aggressively trying to throw off the favorite, Mielnicki. However, the Jersey native would keep his composure and stick with his jab. This would really be effective. With a little over a minute remaining in the opening round, we would see Mielnicki land a hybrid jab-left hook. The attack would send his overmatched opponent down to the canvas.
The left hook would prove to be Mielnicki’s best and most effective punch. In the second round, the curtains would be pulled on Kidd, who clearly had nothing for his adversary. With about thirty seconds remaining in the round, White Magic would unleash a double left hook that would hurt Kidd and send him retreating from danger! Unfortunately for him, Mielnicki would jump on him and left hook him into submission as he dropped to his knees, resulting in the referee stopping the fight.
What was supposed to be a shot at revenge, instead turned out to be a slaughter of a late replacement opponent. As for a rematch with James Martin, don’t hold your breath. Mielnicki made it clear he’s moving past the man to give him his one and only defeat.
