Wilson earns knockout in Billings

BILLINGS, Mont. — Central Point boxer Mike Wilson made quick work of his opponent at the Stars and Stripes Friday Night Fights at The Shrine Auditorium on Friday.

Wilson knocked out Khuzaymah Nubu about 1:30 into the opening round of the heavyweight fight.

Wilson, a two-time super heavyweight national champion as an amateur, only had five weeks of preparation time to move from cruiserweight to heavyweight and didn't bring a trainer on the trip. Instead, his brother, Jeff, worked his corner in the event which featured a slate of amateur fights before four professional bouts.
