Edited Press Release: This past Friday night, undefeated 140-pounder “Mighty” Mike Arnaoutis (15-0-2 with 7 KOs) registered a first-round annihilation of previously undefeated Mexican banger Jose Moreno (12-1-0 with 10 KOs). The card was live at the Civic Center in Kissimee Florida, and televised on Telemundo. A devastating combination ended the bout quickly.
“Mighty” Mike electrified the sold out crowd of four-thousand rabid Floridians with sharp, quick combination punching to the head and body. Arnaouits also controlled the distance with a stiff, heavy jab, lighting fast punches, and quick footwork. The end came with a little under two-minutes in the opening stanza as “Mighty” Mike landed a booming counter left hand shot to Moreno’s body that was followed by a vicious right bomb to his temple. Moreno was out before his body collapsed to the canvas. The fight was immediately waived off by referee Jorge Alonso.
