BRUNO ESCALANTE SCORES BRUTAL 1ST ROUND KNOCKOUT

Friday night, at the Fox Theatre in Redwood City, on the Don Chargin and Paco Presents boxing show, International Boxing Association (IBA) Super Flyweight Champion, Bruno "The Aloha Kid" Escalante (12-1-1, 6 KOs), scored a brutal 1st round knockout against, veteran Lorenzo Trejo (33-29-1, 20 KOs).

Escalante used his speed and quickness while throwing punches off peculiar angels before the violent knockout happened.  It was a left hook to the body followed by a right hook to the head that sent the Mexican down for the count.

"I wanted to come out tonight and put on a great show for my fans," said Escalante. "All the hard work paid off and I got my opponent out of there in the first round.  The knockout was set up with good footwork and it felt great. I want to thank my team for getting me ready for this fight.  I couldn't do it without them."
