In front of a hometown crowd, Houston Alexander added Joey Beltran to his resume with a second-round TKO in the headliner. The former UFC and Bellator veteran hurt Beltran with two left hands, staggering the ‘Mexicutioner’ and forcing him to the ropes. From there, Alexander moved in with another left hand and unloaded on Beltran, who was now covering up and turning his back to his opponent. That was enough for the referee to step in and stop the fight.
During his post-fight interview, Alexander was clear in what he wanted next: a potential fight with the newly crowned cruiserweight champion Lorenzo Hunt. And with three straight KOs, the 50-year-old may find himself in a prime position to challenge for gold soon.
“I’m more than in contention,” said Alexander. “I want the belt. I want the belt for Nebraska. We’re going to bring the belt back to Omaha, Nebraska. Nebraska is in the building!”
Former UFC fighter Kevin Croom was successful in his bare-knuckle boxing debut, knocking out Sean Wilson by second-round KO in the co-headliner. ‘Crash’ scored several knockdowns between the first and second rounds before he put Wilson down for good. Very fun debut for Croom.
