Thompson IV shocks Adams in Boxcino Final!

Story by:  Robert Uzzell

Boxcino Junior Middleweight Final
John Thompson IV (17-1, 6 KOs) scored a sensational second round knockout over Brandon Adams (17-2, 12 KOs) on the ESPN2 Friday Night Fights series finale.  The verdict was a big upset as Adams had been favored to win the tournament from the start

Adams dropped Thompson in the first round and his speed seemed like it would be too much for Thompson. However Thompson IV quickly turned the tide in round two came back to stun Adams. Thompson dropped Adams twice in round two, as the referee stepped in for what appeared to be a stoppage. The referee allowed the fight to continue and Adams got caught with a frightening barrage before it was mercifully ended seconds later. The time of stoppage was 2:18.

Thompson went from last minute replacement (literally) to Boxino champion.  Congrats young man!
