Mario Flores earned his way to the top of the list as maybe getting the Beltway Boxing Knockout Of The Year Award for 2014. Flores was facing Christian Pittman in a four round contest. The right hand of Flores was the key to the fight. Flores used that right hand to drop Pittman three times in the bout. This is the reason Flores got his name added to the top of the list as being KO of the years. Flores sent Pittman down for two eight counts, but after that second eight count was over the referee gave the fighters the ok to continue, Flores threw one punch, and that same right hand send Pittman flying to the canvas and almost outside of the ring. This wasn't a TKO. It was a pure KNOCKOUT. The bout came to an immediate stop at 1:51 in the first.
Flores is now 5-1-2, four KO's. Pittman drops to 3-5.
The second bout of the evening was the 6'7" 250 lb Stan Williams facing the maybe 5'10" and questionable 201 lb Jawon Love. I say questionable because Love looked as if he was maybe 160, 175 lbs. The bout started off with Love circling the ring. It seemed normal at the beginning of the bout. As the first round continued it was apparent that Love was running to survive. Williams threw and couple of punches and even landed one or two. Round two began where it ended. Love started running again. This time the running started to show, and Love was so exhausted that he had to give himself a break by taking a knee. The referee gave Love the first eight count. Then Love started back again. Running around the ring until he had to take another eight count, but this time he was just totally spent. Love ran himself into the TKO wall. The few punches that Williams landed along with the running Love did the referee gave him his final count to end the contest at 1:20 in round two.
Williamson is now 3-0, three KO's.
The first bout of the night started with Tevin Farmer in a scheduled eight round contest against Dominic Coca. Farmer stops Coca at 1:41 in round one.
