Marcus Browne Destroys Seanie Monaghan in Two Rounds

By Thomas Gerbasi

NYCB LIVE, home of the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum, New York - Long Island's Seanie Monaghan waited a long time for his big fight on the world stage, but it didn't pan out the way he hoped, as former Olympian Marcus Browne scored a spectacular second-round TKO that continued to raise the Staten Islander's stock in the light heavyweight division.

Browne was sharp from the opening bell, and after establishing his jab, he shot in a flush left hand that put Monaghan down with less than a minute gone in the round. Monaghan rose, but the die was cast. A low blow by Browne gave Monaghan a momentary reprieve, but in the second, Browne stepped on the gas and finished the bout, with a barrage of hard, unanswered shots bringing in referee Steve Willis to stop the fight 40 seconds into the second frame.

Browne moves to 20-0 with 15 KOs; Monaghan falls to 28-1 with 17 KOs.

Adam Kownacki won the Battle of Poland in the FOX opener, stopping former world title challenger Artur Szpilka in the fourth round to keep his unbeaten record intact while clearly making the move from prospect to contender.

Kownacki was able to cut the ring off on Szpilka well in the opening round, and while the veteran got in his share of quick shots, it was Kowancki who did the best work while pinning his foe to the ropes.

Szpilka?s faster hands served him well in the second, and he began to potshot Kownacki as he spun off the ropes and out of trouble. The pattern continued for much of the third, but late in the round, Kownacki began tagging Szpilka with right hands that appeared to stun him momentarily.

In the fourth, Kownacki pressed his advantage and immediately put Szpilka in trouble and then on the canvas. Szpilka rose to his feet, but the follow-up barrage from the Brooklynite ended matters, with referee Arthur Mercante Jr. stepping in at the 1:37 mark.

With the win, Kownacki moves to 16-0 with 13 KOs; Szpilka falls to 20-3 with 15 KOs.

[QUOTE=Bronx2245;17864071]Joe Smith Jr. would be a step back, now that he got schooled by Barerra! 175 is a tough division. You could either fight guys like Barerra, Gvozdyk, Bivol, and Beterbiev, which are all HIGH-RISK, [B]LOW-REWARD[/B], or fight Kovalev, Stevenson,…

Browne was way too fast for Monaghan. His right hand stayed in his face and kept him on the defensive letting that left do it's work when needed so.

[QUOTE=yankees7448;17863332]That's way too high a step up for Browne. I think he should fight someone like Joe Smith next.[/QUOTE]Joe Smith Jr. would be a step back, now that he got schooled by Barerra! 175 is a tough division. You could…
