Pound4Pound Wear sponsored fighter Lennox “2 Sharpe” Allen improved to 18-0 (11 Ko’s) knocking out Kojo Issah 14-2-1 (7 Ko’s) in impressive fashion last night at B.B. King in Times Square, NYC. Kojo had an impressive record entering the fight with only one loss in 16 bouts. In the first round both fighters came out cautious feeling each other out. Kojo was cagey and crafty sometimes dangerous leading with his head, but Allen got the better of the exchanges. In the second round Allen started pounding Kojo to the body and landing. Allen ripped two hard body shots that landed clean to Kojo’s ribs dropping him instantly. Kojo was unable to meet the 10 count ending the bout 51 seconds into round 2.
Allen remains undefeated and is looking to have a breakout year after an injury and opponent issues had him sidelined in 2014. This win should put Allen in the top 10 ranking at super middleweight in the various “alphabet” organizations. ” We look to get Allen right back in the ring in the next month or two so he can get a few more rounds under his belt. After that we will be looking for a bigger fight against any one of the champions at 168 or top contenders”, stated Steven Heid manager to Allen. “This is our year, I felt great and was happy to be back in the square circle. I knew I hurt him as soon as I connected. I heard him wince and he went down immediately. This is the year I become world champion” stated Allen.
