By SecondsOut.com on Doghouse Boxing. By Marc Livitz. Deontay "Bronze Bomber" Wilder maintained his perfect
and highly impressive record of twenty four victories (all by knockout)
this evening with a savage first round TKO win over Kertson Manswell at
the Civic Center Exposition Hall in Mobile, Alabama. Wilder (Tuscaloosa,
AL.), a bronze medalist at the 2008 Beijing Olympics put on a crushing
display of power and speed in front of a lively crowd in his home state.
Manswell, a native of the Caribbean nation of Trinidad and Tobago began
his career with a 20-0 record, but has since lost five of his last
seven bouts, most recently by third round TKO to Alexander Ustinov. He
had also accepted the challenge to fight Wilder with about ten days
The undefeated 6’7" heavyweight began the fight with a tough and
rugged left jab which he consistently threw from shoulder height. About
seventy five seconds elapsed until Wilder followed his left jab with a
thunderous overhand right, which he actually threw in a downward motion
to catch the slumping Manswell. He fell backward and Deontay connected
with a three punch combination to the jaw to score the first knockdown
of the fight. He beat the count and was allowed to continue.
Left jab became left hook shortly thereafter and down went Manswell
once more. The Trinidad native protested the knockdown and in all
fairness, the hook was more of a shove to the head than a solid punch,
but the referee began his count nonetheless. As before, he rose to his
feet yet he still charged face first into Wilder’s assault. With just
under a minute to go in the opening round, Deontay dropped Kertson again
with another barrage of head shots. Referee Keith Hughes didn’t start
any sort of count this time. Deontay Wilder improved to 25(25)-0 with
the first round TKO. Manswell has now lost six of eight on the trot and
fell to 22(17)-6(3).
"Velez KO’s Brea"
Undefeated featherweight prospect Jayson Velez continued his unbeaten
streak with a resounding knockout victory over Leivi Brea of Miami (by
way of the Dominican Republic) in tonight’s co-main event. In the righty
(Velez) versus southpaw matchup, each fighter began the bout with their
own respective amount of patience. A sizable distance was maintained
for the opening three minutes. Although the same pattern of steady jabs
was present in round two, it was the 24 year old Velez who was slowly
able to creep closer to his opponent. The third round saw what would
often be the fight’s M.O. slowly materialize. Puerto Rican Velez
remained active and outworked his fellow boxer, yet it would be Brea who
landed the heavier blows.
Leivi’s desire to perhaps end the fight on the end of one solid punch
was the main reason that his face was visibly reddened from the fourth
onward. Jayson was landing the smarter shots. There was more of close
quarter fighting between the two, but Velez was smart enough not to let
this become his style of boxing. Brea was doing less and less in the
fifth and sixth rounds. Velez had successfully learned the tendencies of
his opponent and quickly turned the tables on him. Worst of all may
have been the fact that Brea had begun to drop his hands. Just a tad
ways past the midpoint of round six, Velez took advantage of this, as he
jabbed Brea into the ropes and proceeded to land a perfectly timed left
hook to the base of his chin.
Brea fell to his knees and then rolled over onto his back. Although
he managed to sit up, he was counted out with the full ten by referee
Jeff Dodson. Jayson Velez earned his nineteenth victory this evening.
Brea fell to (19(10)-10(7)-3).
