HELLACIOUS KNOCKOUT ROCKS JACKSONVILLE

The short notice to take up the fight didn’t affect Brian Kelleher who absolutely rocked opponent Hunter Azure in the second round with a lunging left hook that landed right on the button and dropped Azure to the canvas.

Kelleher moved up a weight class and took on the fight at late notice but made his presence felt in the second round after Azure got the better of the exchanges in the opener.

But it was in the second round with just under 90 seconds left on the clock that Kelleher unleashed with a reaching left hook before landing a hammer first before the fight was called off.
