(Feb 21) Santiago demolishes Christian Daniels, racking up his second 1st round KO victory and rising to 2-0 (2KOs)
In his first month as a professional, Milton “El Santo” Santiago has shown why he was the first fighter ever allowed to turn pro at 17 years old in PA. Despite his youth, he has shown the command, instinct, and poise of a veteran in his prime. Within 30 seconds of Round 1, Santiago staggered Daniels with a powerful overhand right, and the writing was on the wall. By the time of the stoppage, Daniels could do little more than shield himself from a relentless flurry of Santiago’s body blows.
Managers Moz Gonzalez and Eddie Woods have stayed true to their promise to keep Santiago busy, and are already setting their sights on Santiago’s next challenge. “We’re excited to see Milton’s development – the sky is the limit for a fighter with the potential that Milton has, and we’ve put a great team in place to support him. Everything’s going to plan, and we’re excited for the next steps in his career.”
