EDMONTON, Alberta -- It took a couple fights to get there, but Henry Cejudo, the can’t-miss prospect and potential future champion, is back.
“I’m just improving,” Cejudo said after upping his record to 11-2. “I’m just evolving. I want those 50 G’s.”
Cejudo jumped on Reis from the outset, peppering him with a wide variety of punches and kicks and always pressing forward. He was relentless when the fight hit the ground as well, never giving Reis a second of rest.
Things didn’t take long in the second, as Cejudo dropped Reis with a big right hand. A few punches later, the bout was waved off at the 25-second mark.
Reis dropped to 22-8 with his second straight stoppage loss, having lost to Johnson last time out.
