World rated super middleweight contender Edison “Pantera” Miranda (33-4, 29 KOs) again showed why he’s one of the most feared punchers in boxing on Thursday night at the Tachi Palace Hotel & Casino in Lemoore, CA. Miranda knocked out Mexican super middleweight champion Francisco “Panchito” Sierra (20-3, 19 KOs) with a short right to the temple in round one to claim the NABO super middleweight championship. The time was 2:16 when Miranda sent Sierra pitching forward to the canvas for the full count. Miranda was making his debut under the Goossen Tutor banner.
