Tyrone Brunson Gets Off The Mat To Blast Out Kermit Cintron

2300 Arena, Philadelphia - In a crossroads junior middleweight fight, Tyrone Brunson (25-6-3, 23 KOs) picked up the biggest win of his career, with a fifth round knockout of former world champion Kermit Cintron (39-6-3, 30 KOs).

In a very high contact fight, Cintron appeared to be on the verge of a knockout win when he dropped Brunson twice in the fourth round, but the hard puncher recovered after being saved by the bell -  and then came back to drop Cintron three times in the fifth to secure the stoppage victory.

For Cintron, it was his first defeat since 2011, when he was stopped in five rounds by Mexican superstar and future two division champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez in an HBO televised fight.


Cintron then took off until March of 2013, when he fought to a controversial split draw with Adrian Granados.

Then came a win over Jonathan Batista and another win over Ronald Cruz. Cintron was then off for over two years, returning in May of 2016 with a decision victory over Eduardo Flores.

He then picked up the pace of his career, having a total of four fights in 2016.

Cintron was in action also in March, when he fought David Grayton to a five round technical draw. Cintron was down in the fifth of the fight. It was stopped early due to an accidental clash of heads.

Brunson was the knockout king until he got demolished in three rounds by Carson Jones in December of 2009. Then his career spiraled down, as he lost  his next five of six fights. His last two fights, in October and March, saw the puncher have his fair share of struggles with a split draw against Ismael Garcia and a split decision win over Brandon Quarles.

I think cintron should've retired a while ago.

Holy f#ck I really didn't see that one coming. Cintron needs to retire. Brunson is garbage.
