Santiago Ponzinibbio appeared to get clipped not long into his bout today with Gunnar Nelson, but the welterweight came roaring back to score the first round KO.
Ponzinibbio wobbled Nelson with a hard right to the chin, as the latter moved in, and then floored the dangerous fighter with a big left. Nelson ate a couple of more shots from above, which appeared to render him unconscious, and that was that. Huge win for Ponzinibbio, who has now won five in a row.
