Kendall Gill Continues His Boxing Run With a Knockout

By Joe Harrison

Before the super middleweight prospects took action on Showtime's Friday night broadcast, former NBA star Kendall Gill (4-0, 3 KOs) continued his winning streak with a 3rd-round TKO over heavyweight Miles Kelly (1-2, 1 KO) at the UIC Pavilion in Chicago, IL.

Gill, a 6’5 southpaw, stunned Kelly with a right hook almost immediately after the opening bell. Rather than follow up, Gill paced himself and patiently threw his jab. Kelly occasionally charged his 41-year-old opponent and tried to land a wild punch, but Gill used his footwork to avoid Kelly’s attacks.

In the second round, Gill proceeded to work his jab and patiently looked for openings. When Kelly charged Gill again, he was met with a right hook to the face that dropped him to the canvas. Kelly was able to beat the count and made it to the end of the round.

Gill continued to break down Kelly in the third round, landing hooks and jabs. Eventually, Kelly was backed into a corner, and could only cover up. When Kelly dropped to his knees, Referee Pete Podgorski stepped in to halt the contest at the time of 2:54.

Also on the card, Polish prospect Andrzej Fonfara (14-2, 5 KOs) knocked out Roger Cantrell (15-2, 8 KOs) in the fourth round to win the vacant WBC Youth light heavyweight title.

In the opening round, Fonfara was successful with his jab, but Cantrell landed the more effective punches. During the second and third rounds, Fonfara took the fight to Cantrell as he moved forward and landed combinations of jabs and hooks.  

In the fourth round, Fonfara remained in control as he continued to land accurate punches. Suddenly, a left hook staggered Cantrell and a straight right hand put him down for the count. Official time was 1:01.

In addition, welterweight Jaime Herrera (2-0, 1 KO) scored a unanimous decision over Eric Draper (1-3). Scores were 40-36 and 39-37 twice.

Also, heavyweights Krzysztof Zimnoch and Joey Montoya fought to a majority draw. Scores were 37-36 and 37-37 twice.
