Clayton Laurent Wins Big in Pro Debut With a Knockout

2016 Olympian and son of Julian Jackson, Clayton Laurent Jr., made a big splash on his debut fight, stopping Wayman Carter in the second round after a series of body blows at the Mark C Marin Centre, St Thomas, United States Virgin Islands.

Laurent Jr started fast and appears to carry the heavy hands that his father possessed, dropping a game Carter with a crunching right hand in the first.

Carter attempted to rally but it was only a matter of time. Laurent Jr dropped Carter to the body in the second round and repeated the process with referee Luis Pabon crowning him at 1:59 of the second round before a packed crowd.

Laurent lost in the Rio Olympics to eventual gold medal winner Tony Yoka.

"It feels great to turn pro in front of my people," Laurent Jr said. "I felt like I hurt him to the body so I kept going back there and making sure that I put him away. I'm absolutely ecstatic with the support".

Earlier Julian Jackson was honored by WBA Fedelatin President Aurelio Fiengo, who presented him with a WBA championship belt. "The Hawk" reigned as WBA Super Welterweight champion in the late 80s and crushed Terry Norris in one of his defences. Sadly, his belt was stolen.
