Wilson, NC (Feb 5) – Wilson favorites Austin Bryant and Jamar Freeman electrify a charged up Wilson Fight Night crowd with spectacular knockouts.
Bryant, who was returning to the ring after a six month layoff, made quick work of Akeen Brown scoring a punishing second round KO.
Bryant and Brown opened the fight patiently stalking one another. Working behind a methodical jab and body work, Bryant was able to establish ground and get inside Brown’s defense. Bryant used a physical inside game to move Brown around the ring, and win the first round.
Brown opened the second round with some serious combinations across the face of the “Babyface Assassin” Bryant, but Bryant shook them, worked back inside, landed a devastating body shot, and a combination to the head which sent Brown to the canvas. Bryant stood over his fallen opponent then retreated to a neutral corner, Brown could not get up at the ten count, and the capacity crowd inside of the Bill Ellis Convention Center went wild as Bryant 3-0 (3 KO’s) stayed undefeated and won by second round KO.
Jamar “DaTruth” Freeman was extremely upset his February 4 opponent wasn’t rival Pablo Velez, but Freeman didn’t disappoint as the hometown veteran stopped replacement Miguel Queliz with a devastating body shot that almost caused fans to blow the roof off of the Bill Ellis Convention Center.
The veteran Freeman dictated the fight early with his superior jab, while the southpaw Queliz, who was fighting out of the Dominican Republic, seemed confused and was unable to establish good balance against the crafty Freeman.
Freeman took advantage of Queliz’s awkwardness, and landed a one punch, body shot which doubled Queliz over and sent him to the canvas. Queliz remained on all fours gasping for air as the referee counted out the helpless challenger.
Freeman’s win sent the crowd into a frenzy as he improved his record to 15-5-2 (8 KO’s).
