New York, NY-It was all hands on deck at ESPN’s Top Rank Boxing event Saturday night. Undercard Welterweight match-up between Deer Park, NY’s Jahi Tucker vs Asuncion, Paraguay’s Jorge Rodrigo Sosa was good while it lasted.
The eighteen-year old came into the ring playing no games taking that fearless fighter stance from the moment of the first bell hitting the thirty-four year old Sosa like he was target practice.
Exchanging blows in round one, the two boxers took it to center ring with jabs and counterpunches, going the distance and feeding off each other’s tenacity. But round two took a different turn.
The orthodox junior went in landing shots to the body and face making the southpaw unsteady then closing the deal letting off his stick and move skills throwing a relentless attack of combos that Sosa couldn’t keep up with, fading him out by way of technical knockout.
The young prospect proved why he’s creating a buzz in the Welterweight division. Coming out his fifth bout on a round two TKO win (his second KO of his career), being #1 in Team USA’s 2018 Junior Open and signing with the worldwide leader of boxing promoters, Top Rank, this stallion is focused and determined to compete with the big dogs.
