Robert “NIGHTHAWK” Luna Jr. Scores Impressive Stoppage on ESPN FNF Undercard!

Cestus Management’s 140pound destroyer Robert "NIGHTHAWK" Luna Jr. thrilled the live crowed at the Don Haskins Convention Center in El Paso, Texas, by brutally stopping the game and vastly experience Tomondre King in the forth round. Luna Jr's fight was part of the undercard that featured world ranked Antonio Escalante fight Cornilius Locke in the ten round main event.

In the opening round, Luna Jr. came out displaying impressive skills; shooting double and triple jabs which snapped King’s head back. The “NIGHTHAWK” followed his jabs with hard shots to both the head and body leading King to wince in pain. Luna Jr. continued his vicious assaults throughout the second and third rounds systematically breaking King down. In the last minute of round three Luna Jr sensing that he could put King away really stepped up the attack, trapping King on the ropes and nailing him with a booming straight right hand to the chin, just as the bell sounded to end the round. King looked like he was glad to hear the bell as he walked back to his corner on very shacky legs.

The “NIGHTHAWK” came out for the forth and final round with thunder in his fists and rattled off a hellacious six punch combination the head and body which seriously hurt king. The thousands of fans in attendance went wild as they sensed the end was near. Luna responded back to the fans and gave them what they wanted and went after King putting together a brutal display of punching power connecting with a right uppercut followed by a left hook to the side of the head which left King defenseless After the last two shots landed the referee had seen King take enough punishment and called a halt to the contest at 1:28 of the round awarding Robert Luna Jr. a knockout victory. The “NIGHTHAWK”s record improves to 5-0 with 3 knockouts.

After the fight, Robert Luna Jr. said, “I feel great and am glad that I was able to give the El Paso fight fans a great and exciting show. I told everybody I would give them a red hot performance and that's exactly what I did. I hit King with some vicious body shots and overhand rights that really hurt him and really slowed him down. The referee did the right thing and stopped the fight, as King could have got seriously hurt. I still have a very long way to go and I know that this is only the beginning, but I will keep giving my best every time I fight.

Mike Michael, Cestus Management’s adviser, said, “The boxing fans in El Paso (Texas) were going crazy with the energy and brute force that they witnessed as Robert really put a brutal beating on his opponent. Luna’s natural strength is extraordinary and his nonstop, vicious approach is exhilarating. The way he ended the fight is a testament to the NIGHTHAWK’s vast potential.”

Michael added, “Cestus Management would like to personally thank Golden Boy Promotions for this great opportunity. Also, we would like to thank the great fight fans of El Paso, Texas, for their support. And lastly, I would like to personally thank Anthony Velasquez (Gente Entertainment) for his continued support.
