Edgar Berlanga: Ref Made Good Call, I Would've Sent Bellows To Hospital

MGM Grand Conference Center, Las Vegas - In a super middleweight contest, Edgar Berlanga (15-0, 15 KOs) continued with his streak of first round knockouts, as he took out Lanell Bellows (20-6-3, 13 KOs) in a single one-sided round.

It didn't take long before Berlanga was throwing punches with bad intentions.

He rocked Bellows and created a cut above his left eye. He then began to unload with combinations as Bellows was stunned and not protecting himself - with the referee jumping in to wave off the fight.

Berlanga has yet to see the second round in his professional career.

While some felt the contest was stopped a little too quick, Berlanga disagrees.

The Puerto Rican puncher believes that he would have did serious damage had the referee allowed the contest to continue any further.

“It was a good call. The first jab I threw, I split his eye open. And I already knew he wasn’t gonna be in there [long]. So, I had to take him out. His eyes, everything, he looked nervous, he looked scared," Berlanga said.

"And the first punch I landed, I wobbled him. The ref made a beautiful call. You know, his eyes was all over the place. I would’ve hurt him. I would’ve sent him to the hospital.”

[QUOTE=CubanGuyNYC;20823665]Berlanga was clubbing his opponent. Didn’t seem to be much technique in his game. Just bludgeoning the guy in front of him. No telling what’s ahead, but I’m not gonna go proclaiming him anything special just yet. All those first…

[QUOTE=b morph;20823409]It’s all about the competition you face. I’m still impressed by his power, the power is real. The problem is what’s gonna happen when he faces someone who can take it? Is he gonna gas when he has to…

this dude. I've never seen somebody make so many cheesy one liners in interviews and take so much pride in beating on smaller guys. this guy loves his hype. no doubt he has burner accounts giving himself props.

[QUOTE=SN!PER;20823427]Just keep betting on 1st round stoppage. Easy money.[/QUOTE] If he keeps facing subpar opponents, no reason to think anything different. I could use a quick buck.
