Edouard back to his Winning Ways
Daniel "The Haitian Sensation" Edouard (23-2-2 KOs 14) made short work of Panamanian Champion, Jose Arosemena (12-6-2 KOs 10), knocking him out in the 2nd round of their scheduled 11 round WBA Fedelatin Middleweight main event held at Hotel Melia Panama Canal, Colon City, Panama last night, Friday, April 30. In front of a capacity crowd Edouard, who weighed in a at very fit 156 1/2 pounds, looked in very good condition. Arosemena forced the action early but this proved to be a bad strategy. Edouard, in response, reeled off several controlled jabs and strong right hands, ultimately knocking out the challenger at 2:33 of second round..
