Both coaches and White were impressed with “Slambo” and hope to see him bring that power back in the future with better technique.
What a way to end the first round.
Moving into round two, there were two strikers that won by disqualification, but they weren’t medically cleared for the second round. Those two were Miles Jackson and Sean Kilmartin. Other changes to the competition included the return of Brian Ellis at super heavyweight, Eddie Brahimir as an alternate at middleweight. Eviahn Scott at super heavyweight, and “Slambo” at welterweight. Lorenzo Florean and Hayden Southall also joined the competition on Team KO Chris.
The strikers that were awarded byes at the start of the competition – Garret Grimes, “Slappy Joe” Landman, Cody Belisle, and Coltin Cole – returned to the bracket.
With that, White turned the attention to the first match of round two. Branden “The Butcher” Bordeaux and “Slappy Joe.”
