Jay Jackson had to survive some early trouble to then deliver a brutal knockout against Damon Bell on the BKFC 19 prelims airing on FITE TV on Friday night.
It took no time for the action to get started in this matchup as Bell came out firing and tagged Jackson with a heavy combination against the ropes that forced the referee to intervene and call a knockdown. Jackson was given the 10-count to recover, which allowed him enough breathing room to move onto the second round.
From there, Jackson started dishing out his own punishment as he bloodied bell with a series of punches that seemingly evened the score. But it was clear Jackson had no interest in a decision because he was stepping into the pocket and trading punches with Bell whenever given the opportunity.
That’s when he unloaded a devastating right hand that absolutely flattened Bell as he crumbled to the canvas in a heap. While the referee started another 10 count, it was clear that Bell wasn’t going to get back to his feet in time and the fight was waved off.
The end came at 1:58 in the third round.
It was an impressive showing from Jackson, especially after he suffered a knockdown in the first round only to come storming back and put Bell away in the third.
