This kid is only 18-years-old and will no doubt become a world champion, in my humble opinion. He has terrific skills and I believe he’s going to make a fantastic pro. The ‘Korican Kid’ is the total package. This kid has a team behind him, a great father and coach who is a mentor to many and also my friend. Logan’s aggressive and precise style will be great for the television audience.”

 Longtime childhood friend and recently signed Top Rank fighter Teofimo Lopez stated about Logan, “I sparred with everybody and Logan is definitely the strongest-based fighter I’ve ever been in there with. He’s my brother from another mother and people are going to love him. He’s the next Pacquiao. He’s so humble but boy can he rumble.”

Browne Escapes DQ – Beats Williams, Jr. By KO 

@mbrowne718 Marcus Browne Knocks Out Thomas Williams Jr. 

Photo credits: @trappfotos @showtimeboxing 

In the opening bout of the evening, Marcus Browne (19-0, 14 KOs) knocked down Thomas Williams Jr. (20-3, 14 KOs) three times on his way to a sixth-round KO (:42). The southpaw vs. southpaw scrap was chippy from the opening bell. Browne capitalized on his significant reach advantage and controlled the distance with his jab, as Williams struggled to fight effectively on the inside. 

In a bizarre second round, the undefeated 2012 U.S. Olympian scored a knockdown with a straight right and then cracked Williams with a left hook to the back of his head while he was on his knee. After some confusion and bad judgment my referee Ken Miliner did not implement a DQ score deducted a point from Browne and gave Williams five minutes to rest. Williams took the nearly full five minute allotment but never seemed the same when he returned. 

Browne floored Williams again in the fourth with a counter right hook, Williams beat the count but consistently ate shots as he struggled to gauge the distance. The third and final knockdown of the fight happened courtesy of a right hook in the opening minute of the sixth. Williams remained on the canvas complaining of an injured jaw, and failed to beat the 10 second count.
