CICERO, IL, December 14, 2012 — 8 Count Productions, with Round 3 Productions, returned to the Cicero Stadium this evening to present Windy City Fight Night 23, a short, action-packed card headlined by native son Adrian Granados facing Chicago slugger Antonio Canas in a Light Welterweight bout billed as a battle of “Crosstown Rivals.” The four fights featured local pros with strong amateur backgrounds. Chicagoans Junior Wright and Paul Littleton have been honing their skills and reputations while garnering unbeaten records in their short careers. Both faced other unbeaten newcomers. Chicago Golden Gloves standout Ed Brown seemed to have drawn a tough opponent for his pro debut in the far more experienced Dontre King, but he proved himself more than up to the challenge.

Cambridge, Maryland’s Dontre King (6-14-2, 2 KOs142 lbs.) entered the ring first, squaring off against Chicago’s Ed “Bad Boy” Brown (144 lbs.), making his pro debut. Hometown favorite Brown entered to the beating of marching band drums and the cheers of the crowd. Initially King held his own, trying to break through Brown’s guard with combinations to body and head. Brown covered well against his combinations and began finding his openings with a swift jab. As the round continued, Brown began closing in, raking King’s body with hard hooks and coming up with hooks to the head. King tried to go on the offense, but Brown’s counters kept him on the retreat. Several more body-head assaults from Brown looked to signal the end, which came in the form of a right hook to the head, sending King to the canvas, where referee Dave Smith waved off the fight, giving Brown his first victory by technical knockout at 2:26 of the first round. Another volley of drumming celebrated the victor as he left the ring. (continue reading…)
