Lewis Crocker Continues Unbeaten Streak with Fifth-Round Knockout in Belfast

Lewis Crocker Continues Unbeaten Streak with Fifth-Round Knockout in Belfast

 

Belfast’s rising welterweight star, Lewis Crocker, showcased his boxing prowess by securing a fifth-round knockout victory over Mexico’s Jose Felix in the main event at the Ulster Hall. The win extended Crocker’s undefeated professional record to an impressive 19-0.

 

While the first few rounds were relatively uneventful, Crocker took his time to assess his opponent. In the third round, Felix was deducted a point for two low blows, setting the stage for Crocker to take control of the bout.

 

The turning point came in the fourth round when Crocker delivered a series of powerful blows that sent Felix to the canvas. Despite surviving the onslaught, Felix found himself in a precarious position.

 

In the fifth round, Crocker sealed the deal with a perfectly executed left hook that landed on Felix’s whiskers. Although Felix managed to get back on his feet, the referee, Marcus McDonnell, determined he was in no condition to continue, declaring a knockout victory for Crocker.

 

Despite the impressive performance, Crocker missed the weight on Friday, meaning he couldn’t claim the vacant WBO Intercontinental welterweight title. As the current WBA continental European champion, Crocker remains a formidable force in the welterweight division, with aspirations for world honors in the near future.

 

The undercard featured notable performances, including Kurt Walker from Lisburn, who secured a points victory over Darwing Martinez, bringing his record to 10-0. Limerick’s Paddy Donovan continued his knockout streak, achieving his 10th knockout and moving to 13-0 after defeating Williams Andres Herrera.

 

However, the hometown crowd witnessed disappointment as Belfast’s Tommy McCarthy suffered a fourth-round stoppage against Cheavon Clarke. Despite this setback, Crocker’s knockout victory undoubtedly stood out as the highlight of the night, further solidifying his status as a rising star in the welterweight division.
