2020 Romanian Olympian Eric Tudor (1-0) won his professional debut on Saturday night at the Bonaventure Resort Spa in Weston, Florida. He only needed 20 seconds to stop Dalton Duncan (0-3) in their super welterweight bout. A vicious one-two combination sent Duncan face first onto the canvas. The right hand knocked Duncan out cold before he hit the floor.
The 20-year-old hoped to get a couple rounds in but was very happy to get the knockout victory.
"It felt good to make my professional debut even though it didn't last very long. I am going to go right back to the gym and get ready for my next fight," Tudor said immediately after the fight.
His second fight will take place exactly 2 weeks after his debut. His team said that the plan is for Tudor to return on February 26th in Framingham, Massachusetts.
In the main event of the evening, Courtney Jackson (21-4) was upset by Antonio Sanchez (7-13-3) in their welterweight showdown.
