Estrada stops Brown
PROVIDENCE (November 10, 2012) — 2004 U.S. Olympian Jason “Big Six” Estrada (20-4, 6 KOs) won his fourth straight fight Saturday night with a fifth-round knockout of veteran heavyweight Galen “Bad Boy” Brown (38-21-1, 23 KOs) at the Rhode Island Convention Center. Estrada-Brown was the main event on the “Big Things” card, presented by Big Six Promotions.
Estrada continued displaying improved punching power, dropping Brown in the fifth, and then finishing him off with a series of stiff punches until the referee halted the action.
“I wanted to get that knockout,” Estrada explained why he boxed less than normal. “I need knockouts. I’ve been sitting down more on my punches like my pops (father/trainer Roland Estrada) has been saying. I put the pressure on him. He was sticking his tongue out and doing other stuff like that, but I banged his body and then caught him. He was trying to hold my head down at the end when I caught him with some good shots. I’m not sure what’s next. There’s some talk going on and hopefully it’ll be a big fight.”
Local light welterweight Diego “Lobo” Pereira (8-0-1, 4 KOs) kept his unbeaten record intact, knocking out a game Bryan “The Brick” Abraham (6-15-2, 6 KOs) in the sixth round of the co-feature.
Fighting for the first time in two years, Cape Cod heavyweight Jesse Barboza (5-1-1, 3 KOs) outworked Kevin Franklin (4-6, 1 KO) for a win by four-round decision. In a battle of unbeaten light welterweights, Gabriel Deluc (7-0, 1 KO) won every round against Jair Ramos (3-1-1, 2 KOs) for a unanimous six-round decision. World Series of Boxing graduate Russell “The Haitian Sensation” Lamour (1-0) needed only 62 seconds to stop John Downey (0-2).
Welterweights “Steamin’” Josh Beeman and Carlos Hernandez fought to four-round majority draw. Heavyweight Julian Pollard was impressive in his professional debut, recording a devastating knocking of Johnnie Davis (1-3-1) in the second round.
In a battle between two-debuting Providence middleweights, K.J. Harrison-Lombardi won a unanimous four-round decision over Pubilo Pena. Former Irish National amateur champion Michael McLaughlin (3-1-1), now fighting out of Boston, stopped Robert Brando-Hunt (0-3) in the third round.
