Stops Hungarian, Istvan Zeller in 2nd round
Lennox Allen needed just 1:31secs of the second round to dispose of Hungarian, Istvan Zeller, when the two fighters squared off last Saturday evening at the Eagle Bank Arena, Fairfax, Virginia USA. The Guyanese pugilist wasted little time after the first
gong sounded and rushed over to his man with a series of head and body shots. Zeller opted to block most of the blows but was clearly out of his league. This proved insufficient and he was sent to the canvass twice. He rose after the second knockdown with blood spurting from his nose which was later diagnosed to be broken. To his credit, he managed to last out the first stanza.
Boxing out of a southpaw stance, Allen upped the ante in the second stanza and connected with several telling blows that pushed his opponent to the ropes. His highly held guards were certainly not enough to stem the flow of punches from Allen and after an especially wicked volley connected to his head Zeller fell, forcing referee, Danny Schiavone, to jump in and wave off the one sided bout leaving no work for judges, Don Trella, Tom Carusone and Steve Weisfeld.
Allen now sports a record of 20 victories from 21 fights. He has improved his knockout ratio to 62% and his only blemish is a drawn decision against American, Darnell Boone, in August 2010. The Guyanese champion is being tutored by Aureliano Sosa and he said that he is satisfied that his trainer has his interest at heart. Quizzed on plans for the future, Allen, who operates through an agent group, Debella Entertainment, revealed that he will engage his team shortly to decide on the way forward.
The Guyanese pugilist operates out of the Cops & Kids Boxing Gym in Brooklyn and jogs along the pavements of New York’s streets during roadwork sessions early in the mornings. He said that he will only need a few days rest before resuming his schedule.
Zeller’s record has now dipped to 9 losses with 24 wins. He has been victorious in his last 4 bouts, before the Allen bout with the most recent being a unanimous victory over his countryman, Jozsef Kormany when the two squared off last month, September 5. His knockout ratio remains at 22%.
