Over at the swanky Cosmopolitan Hotel in Las Vegas, Khalil Coe, the light heavyweight dynamo from Split-T Management, landed the knockout punch of his career, bringing the curtain down on Gerardo Osuna’s undefeated streak with a dramatic second-round TKO.
As the second round got rolling, Coe unleashed a thunderous right to Osuna’s midsection, sending him crashing to the canvas. Not one to let up, Coe replicated the feat moments later with an identical body shot, flooring Osuna yet again. The trifecta was complete when Coe, with surgical precision, jabbed Osuna in the body, prompting referee Allen Huggins to call it quits at the 1:14 mark.
Tipping the scales at 175.8 lbs and hailing from Jersey City, NJ, Coe’s record now sparkles at 8-0-1, with six of those victories coming by way of knockout. Osuna, the tough contender from Baja California, MEX, takes his first career hit, moving to 20-1.
Coulson Secures WBA Oceania Crown Via Unanimous Points Victory Over Edenden
Over at the Shirebrook Leisure Centre in Mansfield, UK, history was scribbled into the books on a bustling Saturday night. The Chris Boyle showstopper reached a fever pitch as Eleanor Coulson from Worksop threw down with Brisbane’s own Jamie Edenden in a battle royale for the vacant WBA Oceanic Middleweight crown.
This fight was anything but a snooze fest, with both warriors laying it all on the line in a whirlwind of quality fisticuffs.
Though Coulson clinched the win with scores of 99-91, 99-91, and 98-92, those numbers barely skim the surface of how neck-and-neck this tussle was, nor do they capture the Herculean effort Edenden poured out, keeping Coulson on her toes every tick of the clock.
At the end of the day, it was Coulson’s relentless pace and sniper-like precision, dancing at distance with her jab, that crowned her champ.
With this win, Coulson etched her name in the annals as the first BIBA-licensed lady pugilist on British soil to snatch up a Big 4 Title, punching her ticket straight into the WBA middleweight echelons.
Tipping their hats in the official roles were WBA bigwig Mr. Ferlin Marsh, BIBA honcho Mr. Chris Wardrope, with Mr. Ian John Lewis playing ringmaster and the trio of judges, Ms. Carla Fox, Mr. Adam Puttock, and Mr. Ben Watkinson, keeping score.
