In a performance that justified his blue-chip prospect status, 20-year-old Bernabe Concepcion knocked out Adam Carrera in the third round of a junior featherweight contest. A relaxed-looking Concepcion, 26-1-1 (15), used fluid footwork to position himself inside the long reach of the taller Carrera, where he was able to unload with quick hooks and uppercuts. The Freddie Roach-trained Filipino threatened Carrera with sharp left hooks to the head, but it was a left to ribcage that felled the California native in the third. – by Ronan Keenan of thesweetscience.com full story here >>>
