Mykquan Williams stuns Luis Feliciano with destructive sixth-round stoppage

It all went horribly wrong for Luis Feliciano.

The previously-undefeated California-based Milwaukee native was dropped twice in round one by Mykquan Williams and then clubbed to defeat in six rounds in the ProBox TV main event at the Whitesands Events Center, Plant City. The time of the stoppage was 1-33 of the sixth.

Williams, from Hartford, Connecticut, improved to 20-0-2 (9 KOs) while Feliciano lost for the first time in 18 fights (17-1, 8 KOs).

Williams’s hands were too fast and his sharp right hand was too effective throughout. 

It was a steady opening first round, with both seeing what the other had. Williams was trying to land that right over the top, and he found it in the second round.

Feliciano was thumped to the deck by right hands once, and then again moments later. 

Out of desperation, Feliciano initially tried to hold and when he couldn’t claim Williams, he planted his feet and attempted to fire back.   

Williams looked tidy, compact, and very neat defensively. Feliciano shrugged off a right hand in the third and there were signs of hope for him with Williams’s right cheek starting to colour and swell up and Feliciano enjoyed some success to the body.

Yet another Williams right hand landed and Feliciano staggered in the fourth, but he shook his head as if to say he slipped. 

Williams’s faster hands bought a nod of acknowledgment early in the fifth from his opponent. 

Feliciano, trying to get a foothold, was throwing too many single shots and not throwing nearly enough to the body.

The end came in the sixth. 

Feliciano seemed to find himself tangled in the ropes, appeared to hurt his leg but Williams mercilessly jumped on him, launched over a huge right hand, and followed in with more punishing blows. Feliciano crashed dramatically to the canvas and although he made it back to his feet, he was in no condition to continue and the fight was stopped.
