Vicksburg native Martin Brown defeated Juan Pino in a MMA bare knuckle fight Friday in Plant City, Florida.
Before the fight, Brown announced he could knock out Pino in the first round.
“I think I can get get him out of there in the first round,” Brown said in an interview with Bare Knuckle News. “If I use one hand I can get him out of there in the second round.”
Brown fulfilled that promise when he gave Pino a left hook followed by multiple head blows. Brown kept punishing Pino, but the referee called off the fight, and Brown won by technical knockout.
The big fight lasted only 58 seconds, and Brown left the ring to celebrate his victory.
