Last night in the opening bout of Showtime’s ShoBox card, prospect Amir Imam improved to 13-0 (12 KOs) with a stunning knockout over previously unbeaten Jared Robinson (14-1, 6 KOs).
As the more accurate and heavier puncher, Imam battered Robinson for most of the bout and sent him sailing out of the ring on his head via a right hand. To Robinson’s credit, he amazingly got to his feet and back in the ring before the ref decided to call it off. Per the rules, a fighter has until the count of 20 to get back in the ring when sent to the floor.
Nicknamed the “Young Master,” this is the first time most (including myself), have seen Amir Imam in action. The 23-year old has some serious power and is one to watch in the 140-pound divison.[youtube http://youtu.be/sABi_u7bhzY]
