Lennox Allen impresses, now 18-0 (11 Ko's)

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.

Terrence Crawford continues to shine!

Undefeated WBO lightweight champion Terrence Crawford 25-0 (17k Ko’s)  defended his belt a few moments ago with a 12 round boxing clinic against the always very tough and durable Ray Beltran. Beltran who is Manny Pacquaio’s main sparring partner came into the fight 29-6  (17 Ko’s), but certainly earned his shot at the title after many believed he was robbed last year when he went to the U.K. to fight Ricky Burns. Beltran was handed a draw in a fight most every boxing fan believe he won hands down. In that contest he battered Burns from pillar to post even breaking his jaw in the second round and dropping him hard in the eighth

In March of 2014 Terrence Crawford made the trip over the pond to the United Kingdom and handed Burns his third career loss by way of unanimous decision, in the meantime taking his strap back home to Omaha, Nebraska. Most sport fans these days know Omaha from Peyton Manning constantly yelling it at the line of scrimmage. However, there is certainly a new face to be associated with Omaha and his name is Terrence Crawford.  Century Link Stadium was packed with 11,000+ screaming fans with one special fan in attendance Mr. Omaha himself, Warren Buffet. However, Mr. Buffet who is a very knowledgeable fan of sport said, “Terrence is the new face of Omaha!”

Crawford dominated from the first round and swept all there scorecards 119-109,120-108, 119-109. Beltran came to fight and had his moments, but Crawford was just to much to handle.  Crawford dominated the fight with a sledge hammer like jab and switched to southpaw in round two confusing and frustrating Beltran. Beltran landed a few solid hard chopping punches in several rounds, but Crawford shook them off with his iron chin and came right back every time with dazzling shots that hurt Beltran.

Crawford with less than 100 amateur fights was a stand out amateur boxer beating current world champions Mikey Garcia and Danny Garcia.  The hardcore boxing fans are buzzing about Crawford and already throwing his name around in the pound4pound list. Once the mainstream fan catches on, you will certainly see some big fights and this kid has the tools to make history.
