Conor Benn Knocks Out Sanudo With Body Shot in 2nd Round

By Keith Idec

NEW YORK – Conor Benn made quick work of Brandon Sanudo on Saturday night.

The strong British welterweight prospect knocked out Sanudo with a body shot in the second round on the Daniel Jacobs-Luis Arias undercard at Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum. Following an uneventful first round, Benn blasted a retreating Sanudo with a left hook to the body that temporarily left Sanudo unable to move.

Sanudo couldn’t get off his gloves and hands before the fight was stopped at one minute of the second round in a scheduled six-rounder.

Benn (10-0, 8 KOs), the son of British legend Nigel Benn, scored his fifth consecutive quick knockout. Mexico’s Sanudo, 28, lost for the fourth time in his past five fights and slipped to 7-7 (4 KOs).

The 21-year-old Benn is expected to return to the ring against an undetermined opponent on the undercard of the Tony Bellew-David Haye rematch December 17 at O2 Arena in London.

George Sosa jumped up and down Saturday night, sure he had done enough to beat the house fighter.

Sosa settled for a majority draw with Long Island’s Tommy Rainone in their non-televised, six-round junior middleweight match on the Daniel Jacobs-Luis Arias undercard at Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum. One judge scored the fight for Sosa, 59-55, but the other two judges had it even (57-57).

Sosa (15-10-1, 15 KOs), of Passaic, New Jersey, seemed to land the harder shots during the fight. The left-handed Rainone (26-8-2, 6 KOs) mostly moved away from the stronger Sosa, but neither fighter was badly hurt.

Earlier Saturday night, Long Island’s Tyrone James defeated Daniel Sostre by unanimous decision in a six-round junior middleweight match. James (6-0, 3 KOs) beat Sostre (12-15-1, 5 KOs) by the same score, 60-53, on all three scorecards.

Before James’ victory, Kazakh junior welterweight Dimash Niyazov remained unbeaten by stopping Agustine Mauras in the fifth round of a scheduled six-rounder.

Shame we won't get to see Benn Jr v Eubank Jr. Wouldn't mind seeing both Eubank Sr and Jr have that conceited snide smirk wiped off both their faces.
