By Suge Green:, OnTheGrindBoxing.com – Danny O’Connor impressed the Friday night crowd at the Hard Rock in Hollywood, Florida, winning a 4 rounder televised live on ESPN2. O’Connor defeated the 2-1-1 Jamar Saunders by way of Majority Decision, in what turned out to be more of a light welterweight slug fest than a boxing match.
The 24 year old Saunders didn’t have the pedigree that the decorated former amateur O’Connor comes equipped with, however Jamar showed a lot of heart and fighting spirit in remaining vertical for the entire 4, and in landing more power shots than Danny in at least one round.. Don’t be surprised if the young O’Connor goes on to fight in some of boxing’s future wars. Danny improves to 4(1)-0 with 1 KO.
