Powell takes show on the road, demolishes third foe in a row
April 29, 2012

White Rocks own, Daniel “DP” Powell (3-0 3ko) traveled to Wilson North Carolina last night to fight a hometown fighter (Anthony Crawley, Wilson N.C.) in his own back yard. Being in hostile territory did not deter “DP” from the job at hand. He continued to climb the undefeated ladder by posting another win via a stunning first round knockout of Anthony Crawley (0-1). With each fight Powell continues to show his maturity in the ring. His patients were evident as he methodically picked apart his opponent with well place punches until he saw the opportunity to end the fight early. Powell connected with a beautiful 2 punch combination that culminated with a straight right to the body that left Crawley wreathing in pain. Crawley was still down several moments after the referee had finished his 10 count. Congratulations “DP” for a job well done. “DP” next fight will be at the Township Auditorium on June 16th.
