It was payback Friday night as the fans on hand at the Tachi Palace & Casino in Lemoore, CA, witnessed heavyweight rising star Travis “Freight Train” Walker 26-1-1 (20) avenge the only loss on his resume by defeating TJ Wilson 12-2 (8) in two rounds of solid heavyweight action on Showtime’s ShoBox: The New Generation.

Walker, who was a victim of a fifteen second controversial defeat from the hands of Wilson this past October, wasted no time in the second go around as he jumped on Wilson at the bell to begin round one.

Both went to work looking to make a short night but Walker was getting the better of the two landing solids jabs backing up Wilson in the opener.

All though it was a short night, there was aggression on both sides of the fence that had the ref warning both combatants for wrestling. But no more grappling was needed in the second round as Walker began to open up Wilson’s guard with hard jabs finishing up with unrelenting right hands.

Walker walked down Wilson and landed a booming right hand that started the decline of Wilson vs. Walker war. Travis continued with a flurry of left and right hooks and ended the bout with a double right uppercut that sent a dazed and confused T.J. to the ropes as referee Lou Moret jumped in calling a halt to the pain and punishment giving Walker the win at 1:50 in the second round.

In this win Walker not only gets revenge but straps on the IBA Continental Americas and the NABF (Interim) heavyweight titles.
