Ashton Sylve’s ring walk endured significantly longer than his battle Saturday night.
The 18-year-old lightweight possibility halted Dominican veteran Braulio Rodriguez only 61 seconds into their planned eight-round session at Desert Jewel Field. Sylve (8-0, 8 KOs), of Long Ocean side, California, safeguarded his ideal record in the co-highlight before Jake Paul battled UFC legend Anderson Silva in a Kickoff Pay-Per-View headliner.
Sylve, who is advanced by Paul’s organization, countered Rodriguez with a speedy passed on snare that dropped the Dominican veteran to his gloves and knees. Rodriguez beat official Tony Zaino’s count, yet Zaino waved a finish to the activity in light of the fact that Rodriguez coincidentally found the ropes.
Rodriguez fought the stoppage, notwithstanding that he was unable to stand upright once he arrived at his feet.
The Dominican Republic’s Rodriguez, 34, had not battled in anywhere close to three years before Sylve beat him. However latent, Rodriguez has lost exclusively to undefeated warriors in Ryan Garcia (then 16-0), Christopher Diaz (then 22-0), Alberto Mercado (then 12-0-1), Carlos Diaz (then 13-0) and Sylve.
