On Friday night, there was a “Bigfoot” sighting at the Pharr Events Center. However, a “Southern Disaster” sent him right across the Texas state line and back to Louisiana. Houston’s Dominic “Southern Disaster” Guinn (34-9-1, 25 KO’s) snapped his three fight losing streak as he defeated Stacy Frazier of Louisiana by second round knockout in the main event of “Pure Pride II” at the Pharr Events Center.
“I am glad I shook off this losing streak,” said Guinn. “My plan was to end it early and I am glad to get the victory.”
Early in the first round, Frazier connected with a straight right hand which stunned Guinn. However, Guinn responded in the second as he caught Frazier with a right hook which sent him to the canvas.
Guinn continued the onslaught as he applied tons of pressure to Frazier and sent him crashing to the canvas for a second time with another right hook, thus causing the referee to stop the bout at the 1:51 mark of the second round.
“I wanted to make a statement tonight and show everyone that I am not a has been,” said Guinn. “I feel I am ready for the top dogs and want to take on Wladimir Klitschko. My dream is to knockout Klitschko and stand over him with the belts.”
“Then I plan on fighting him for a second time and beating him again.”
