NEW YORK and TORONTO, ON – March 30, 2019 – Rising Lightweight prospect, Will Madera (14-0-2 7 KO’s) of Albany, NY, scored an impressive first-round knockout victory over former world title challenger, Daulis Prescott (32-12 24 KO’s) of Barranquilla, Columbia, in a scheduled 8-round co-feature Saturday night from the Jamil Shrine Temple in Columbia, SC. Madera stopped Prescott at 1:23 of the first round with a five-punch combination to the body.
“Will Madera has quickly become a serious prospect in the lightweight division,” said Denis Benoit, CEO of Liveco Boxing and Madera’s promoter. “In his last fight, he upset previously undefeated Thomas Mattice on ShoBox, and now, with precision, he knocks out a former world title challenger in a little over a minute. It’s been a great year so far, and it’s only going to get better from here,” added Benoit.
Stay tuned. Madera will be back in the ring in April or May.
