By Peter Lim

Cedric Agnew (27-1, 14KOs) came back from his seventh-round KO loss to Sergei Kovalev with a first round TKO victory over Shannon Miller (25-52-8, 18 KOs) at the Houston Athletic Fencing Center. Curiously enough, Agnew, a southpaw, ended the bout with a mirror punch that felled him for the full count against Kovalev.

In the final seconds of the opening round, Agnew, 31, exploded with a bone-crushing right hook to the ribcage that dropped Miller in agony. Miller beat the count but failed to come off his stool for the second round.

"I just heard the instructions from my coach (Bobby Benton) to go to the body," Agnew said. "As soon as I started going to the body I saw him flinch so I went to the body viciously."

The fight was staged by Savarese Boxing Promotions.

Junior welterweight southpaw Regis Prograis (10-0, 8 KOs) dropped Marteze Logan (26-56-2, 6 KOs) with a missile of a straight left en route to stopping him in the second round.

Lightweight Ivan Otero (13-2, 4 KOs) hurt David Green (2-20-1, 1 KO) with a left uppercut in the second round before stopping him with a series of unanswered blows in the third.

Southpaw Jesus "Speedy" Gonzalez (3-0, 2 KOs) dropped Guadalupe Perez (2-17) twice for a second-round TKO in a lightweight bout.

Welterweight Alberto Robles (2-0, 1 KO) outpointed Andrew Sosa (0-2) over four rounds in a wild and messy slugfest.

Junior welterweight southpaw Jose Garcia made a successful debut by  dropping Willie Miller (0-8) in the first round en route to a four-round decision victory.

And lightweight Luis Garcia debuted with a second round stoppage over Theodore Williams (0-6).

It's good for Cedric Agnew to come back so soon after his loss and get back to winning ways, even if the opponent wasn't very good. Some fighters take a year off after a stoppage loss, but I think it's better for them to come back sooner and have a confidence-building warm-up fight.

[QUOTE=SeekDaGreat]Agnew looked like he had the goods, he just ran into a cold blooded killer in Kovalev. Glad to see him back in the winners bracket.[/QUOTE] I agree. Matter of fact I wouldn't be upset if one of the big networks or even NBC set up Agnew vs. Fonfara on an undercard

[QUOTE=PBP]LOL. Come on man. He just got flat out destoyed a couple months ago. I wouldn't mind Agnew vs. Fonfara or the winner of Williams/Campillo next.[/QUOTE] Yeah, I was thinking of the Campillo - Williams winner too. In fact even if Williams loses I think it'd be decent fight. Both...

[QUOTE=PBP]LOL. Come on man. He just got flat out destoyed a couple months ago. I wouldn't mind Agnew vs. Fonfara or the winner of Williams/Campillo next.[/QUOTE] What I'm interested in. Fonfara.... I think he's saving himself for Kovalev

[QUOTE=Mike D]25-52? That's not bad, I guess. Coulda been 17-52. Quality win for Agnew.[/QUOTE] LOL. Come on man. He just got flat out destoyed a couple months ago. I wouldn't mind Agnew vs. Fonfara or the winner of Williams/Campillo next.
