February 29, 2016 Melbourne, AUSTRALIA/New York: Star Boxing’s undefeated Super Middleweight Zac Dunn (20-0 16KO Melbourne, AU), captured the vacant WBC International Silver Super Middleweight championship with a spectacular 1 punch KO over Brazilian Rogerio Damasco (22-4-2 19KO) at The Melbourne Pavilion, Flemington, Victoria, AU. The time of the knockout was 1:16 of the 1st round. The KO will certainly get consideration for knockout of the year award for the Australian also known as ‘Crocodile Dunn’ and “Dynamo”.
Dunn started a little slowly, allowing Damasco to get off with power shots of his own, but then threw a beautiful overhand right counter which landed right on the button and Damasco crumpled to the canvas and was counted out. The KO will certainly get consideration for knockout of the year award. Watch Knockout:
Promoter Joe DeGuardia had this to say about Dunn’s performance “Wow what a knockout!! What a tremendous right hand that was by Zac Dunn. These types of performances are what get boxing fans excited. That punch was reminiscent of the days of watching the explosiveness of Mike Tyson. Zac is ready to take on the best in the world
at Super Middleweight and I expect he will quickly become a must see fan favorite”.
Dunn is currently rated in all 4 sanctioning bodies, #10 IBF and WBO, #12 WBC, and #14 WBA and last year won the IBO World Title.
