Time to Regroup

Following Saturday’s upset loss to 🇫🇮Robert Helenius in Brooklyn, Keith Trimble, Head-Trainer to Polish Heavyweight 🇵🇱Adam Kownacki, says his fighter will bounce back from the disappointing loss.

“Zero excuses, this is the fight game and shit happens. Most importantly Adam has no injuries and is healthy. One punch can change the game in seconds, especially with the big boys. Adam will be back, will get back to his winning ways”

Ryan Garcia Delivers 2020 Knockout of the Year Candidate

Undefeated Lightweight 🇺🇸Ryan Garcia takes the lead in 2020 for Knockout of the Year candidate with his devastating left hook that left Francisco Fonseca flat on his back staring into the black lights 1:20 into the first round.

“The fight didn’t last long, but I watched a video of Sugar Ray Robinson before coming into this fight, he did a little feint and he caught his opponent with a perfect left hook. So when I seen Fonseca move that way I just faked him a little bit and caught him clean with that left hook.”
