Kownacki wins in 6
On the non televised undercard of Errol Spence Jr vs Lamont Peterson from The Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn, NY in a 10 round heavyweight bout, Adam Kownacki improved to 17-0 with 14 KOs stopping Iago Kiladze (26-1,18KOs) in the 6th round.
Kiladze started well even drawing blood from the nose of Kownacki while using his movement. However, as the fight went on Kownacki kept coming forward landing shots while taking some back.
In round four Kownacki landed a shot that dropped Kiladze and seemed to energize himself. By the fifth Kiladze seemed to be dead tired with Kownacki slowly walking him down and taking his will.
In the sixth Kownacki landed two uppercuts followed by a right that put Kiladze down to end his night. Kownacki showed how tough he is but must work on his defense if he wants to make it on the next level.
Browne routes Ntetu in 1
In a 10 round light heavyweight bout Marcus Browne improved to 21-0 with 16KOs while stopping Francy Ntetu, 17-2, 4KO, in the first round. The round started slow but heated up very quickly.
Browne landed a combination that put Ntetu down. Ntetu was able to beat the count but looked badly hurt, Browne put his foot on the gas as the referee stepped in to stop the action giving him the TKO victory.
The stoppage seemed to be a little premature but not by much. It will be interesting to see what’s next for Browne as he is coming along quite nicely.
