Heavyweights Kye Brooks & Jonathan Rice
Score Knockouts Mexico
Prince Ranch Boxing heavyweights, Kye Brooks (4-0, 3 KOs)
and fellow stablemate, heavyweight Jonathan Rice (9-3-1, 5
KOs), both who are managed by Greg Hannley, were victorious
this past Saturday in Tijuana, MX.
Jonathan Rice scored a first-round knockout against, Juan
Carlos Moreno. After a few explosive exchanges, Rice caught
Moreno with a counter right hand that sent him to the
canvas. Moreno got up and came firing back, only to get
caught again with a strait right cross, forcing the referee
to stop the bout at the 2:19 mark of round one.
"Fighting in Mexico is a challenging experience when the
whole crowd is against you," said Rice. "After a few
exchanges I got comfortable in there and took him out. I'm
thankful to my manager Greg for keeping me busy. I'm ready
to get right back in the ring and keep this momentum going."
Brooks, who hails from Las Vegas, scored a first-round
knockout over Jorge Jimenez. After dropping him twice with
two powerful left hooks, a barrage of punches followed,
forcing the referee to stop the bout at the 2:37 mark.
"I came out here and got the knockout out," stated Brooks.
"After being out of the ring for a few months, it felt good
to get back in there. I'm hoping to return to the ring at
least one more time before the year ends."
"Fighting in Mexico is something we plan on doing moving
forward as I want to keep my guys busy." said Greg Hannley,
CEO of Prince Ranch Boxing. "Kye and Jonnie both got
knockout victories and the march continues. Both these
heavyweights got the talent to compete with anyone. I'm just
going to move them one fight at a time."
