Tommy Karpency Crushes Jackson
In his first bout since losing a competitive 12 round decision to top ranked light heavy Karo Murat (22-0), WBA#14 light heavyweight Tommy Karpency rebounded Friday night with a one-sided destruction over late sub Julius Jackson at the Wheeling Isle Racetrack and Casino in Wheeling, West Virginia. Karpency (20-2-1) controlled the fight with superior skills, power punching and effective combinations dropping Jackson with a right/left combination at the conclusion of the opening stanza. Jackson failed to answer the bell to start the second. Karpency's manager, Pat Nelson, stated, "Tommy looked extremely sharp tonight and is not only 'in line' to fight WBA champ Beibut Shunenov (9-1), but also matches up very well with fellow southpaw and WBO champ Juergen Braehmer (36-2).."
