"And your winner, by unanimous decision..."
"And your winner, by unanimous decision, out of the red corner, Jason Melendez!"
Alongside Coaches Danny Millet, Maggie Rickman and Jay Isip, Jason Melendez entered the ring looking like an action figure ready to rock. Jason's dominance & strength throughout the fight, which consisted of 3 x 2 minute rounds, is ultimately what lead him to get his hand raised!
Congratulations to the whole Kings Team! You guys are tremendously hardworking and a incredible crew to be a part of. It was an honor to share this night with you.
To all our Buctown Family that showed up without hesitation to support Jason, your attendance was greatly appreciated! It means a ton. Jason, we are beyond proud of you and to have you with us. Your dedication and hunger is unmatched. BIG things are coming for you and we will be there every step of the way. Congratulations on the W!
