Two crushing stoppages were the highlights of the Left Hook Boxing card on Saturday at the ABC Sports Arena in Springfield, VA. In the main event, Caroline, VA cruiserweight Adam “The Real Deal” Seal scored a punishing second-round TKO over Terry “T-Brick” Roy of Front Royal, VA. The co-feature saw 18-year-old welterweight Juan “The Savior” Rodriguez of Haymarket, VA score a devastating first-round TKO over veteran Edward “Nucky” Anderson of Richmond.
Seal started the damage late in the first round as he sent Roy stumbling back into Seal’s corner with a blistering right hand. Roy was trying to keep Seal off of him with his jab but Seal proved to be too powerful By the end of the first, Seal had busted Roy’s nose. With less than a minute to go in the second round, Seal landed a glancing left followed by a powerful right that dropped Roy hard to the canvas. Referee Billy Johnson immediately stopped the contest at 2:12 of the second. Seal is now 6-1, five KOs while Roy suffered his second straight defeat and falls to 7-2-2, six KOs.

Normally, 47-year-old Edward “Nucky” Anderson is a strong test for his opponents having gone the distance with the likes of Bayan Jargal, Todd Wilson and Dorin Spivey, but Rodriguez started the damage quickly, pressuring him before landing a solid left hand that sent Anderson spiraling down to the canvas. Anderson got up from the knockdown but the finish was a done deal moments later as referee Rick Ellis stopped the contest at 1:28 of the first. Rodriguez is now 2-0, two KOs while Anderson is 4-14, three KOs.
