By Robert Brizel, Head Real Combat Media Boxing Correspondent


Philadelphia, PA (June 26th, 2017)– Tyrone ‘One Round’ Brunson, 25, 6-2 with 23 knockouts, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, started his career with 19 consecutive knockouts. At age 32, run, with a 76 ½ inch reach, had a two and a ½ inch reach advantage over former world welterweight champion Kermit Cintron, a few months short of 38 years old, now 39-6-3 with 30 knockouts, Reading, Pennsylvania, a crossroads junior middleweight main event at 2300 Arena in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, on Saturday evening, June 24, 2017.


The bout promised to be a hard hitting main event slugfest, and it lived up to expectations. Cintron finally dropped Brunson twice in round four, and it looked allover, but Brunson got saved by the bell. In the fifth round, Cintron went in for the kill, but instead got caught, resulting in three knockdowns and a stunning fifth round TKO upset win for Brunson. A rematch seems unlikely, though both fighters still seem to have some bouts left in them. Cintron got careless and got caught. Brunson showed heart, courage and determination. This is not the first time Brunson has gotten off the floor to win by knockout at 2300 Arena.


Result: Tyrone ‘One Round’ Brunson TKO 5 Kermit Cintron, Super Welterweights (1:21)
