Mesa, AZ, May 06, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- 1on1 Boxing Fitness fighter, Bruce Darby, won his amateur debut fight on Saturday at Putting on the Gloves for Cinco De Mayo in Prescott Valley in which he scored a second round knockdown on his way to winning by judges’ decisions.
“The first round was a tossup and pretty much even, but just 20 seconds into the second round, Bruce took down his older, taller opponent,” said Darby’s coach and 1on1 Boxing Fitness owner Christopher Terry. “After the knock down, the guy didn’t want to trade punches with Bruce anymore, and the momentum of the fight shifted to Bruce’s favor.”
“Bruce won because he was the busier of the two fighters,” said Terry. “He was more aggressive and threw more punches.”
Terry said while the win was a great start to Darby’s amateur career, it is also a stepping stone to examine and improve upon technique, skill and conditioning.
“The amateurs is for gaining experience and perfecting your craft, so we take each fight in stride and improve through every bout whether he wins or loses,” said Terry.
As for Darby’s next career move, Terry hopes to enter Darby in the Junior Olympics State Tournament May 15th and 16th.
