Friday night in his hometown of Philadelphia, top welterweight prospect Poindexter Knight improved to 3-0-0, 2 knockouts, with a dominating four round decision over cross-town rival Vincent Floyd at the 2300 Arena.
Aggressive from the opening bell the 22-year-old southpaw dropped Floyd in the first round and stayed in control displaying a full arsenal throughout the fight in front of a huge crowd of his local supporters. Scores at the end of the four stanzas were 40-35 on all three judges’ scorecards.
Promoted by The Real Deal Boxing, Knight continued to impress Evander Holyfield.
“This was the third time I’ve see Poindexter and he has improved with each outing. He’s young but it’s obvious he’s working hard in training and it’s paying dividends.”
Details on Knight’s return to action will be announced in the near future.
