Video: Edner Cherry on His Knockout Win of Luis Cruz

TAMPA – Victor Salazar catches up with Edner Cherry, to discuss his undercard bout - where he knocked out Luis Cruz - as part of the Premier Boxing Champions televised debut on ESPN from Florida.

In the main event, Keith “One Time” Thurman (26-0, 22 KOs) remained undefeated by stopping Luis Collazo (36-7, 19 KOs) in in the seventh-round in his hometown of Tampa on the inaugural Premier Boxing Champions on ESPN from the USF Sun Dome.

Thurman was in control for much of the fight, using his combinations and a powerful right hand to hurt Collazo consistently. The former world champion would not go down without resistance however, as he continued to stand toe-to-toe with Thurman and hurt him with a left hook to the body in round five that staggered the hometown favorite.

Thurman regained control of the fight and opened up a cut on Collazo’s right eye in round six. That cut would eventually lead to the stoppage by Collazo’s corner after the seventh round, making the stoppage official at 2:59 in round seven.

In the televised opener, the veteran Willie Nelson (24-2-1. 14 KOs) scored an upset over previously unbeaten Tony Harrison (21-1, 18 KOs) with a TKO at 2:57 into the ninth round.

Harrison had been in control of the fight thanks to a strong jab and led on all three judges’ scorecards heading into the ninth round. Nelson however was able to land a series of right hands in the ninth round that staggered and eventually dropped Harrison to the canvas.

Harrison was able to get to his feet before the ten-count, but was deemed unable to continue by referee Frank Santore.
