Victoria’s Adam Braidwood took on his 12th professional boxing opponent Friday, Dec. 8 and extended his record to 11-wins and 1-loss, with a second-round technical knockout.
His opponent Misael Sanchez of Tijuana was knocked down twice during the first round.
During the first minute of the second round, Sanchez’s corner threw the white towel into the ring conceding the fight. Braidwood easily had his way with the Mexican, nearly knocking him out as he chased him into a corner.
The World Boxing Union heavyweight champion appeared frustrated with the fight and kicked the white towel that was lying on the canvas.
“We were hoping for a tougher fight, that guy was 17-2. KO sets me up with tough fights. I will be back to the drawing board Monday, thanks, everybody,” said Braidwood via video.
Sanchez weighed in at 282 pounds while Braidwood tipped the scales at 250.
Five of Braidwood’s wins have ended by TKO, while five ended by KO with one majority decision.
Braidwood, former Edmonton Eskimo, was fighting at Edmonton’s Shaw Conference Centre on a fight card that was promoted by KO Boxing of Edmonton.
It was his 10th fight in the building and 10th consecutive win. Braidwood went 5-0 for 2017.
