3/15/2016…. Lancaster California’s unbeaten Kevin (Playboy) Watts finally made his long awaited tv debut tonight in Northern Cali. and he made the most of it. Watts ( 10-3-3K) faced once beaten lefty Michael Chudecki (11-1-1D-2K) in a scheduled 8 rounder aired on FOX 1. Watts, trained by Byron Martinez operates out of the AV Boxing Club in Palmdale run by Herve Estrada.
After a rather tentative first couple of rounds, the smooth boxing Watts started landing left hooks that started Chudecki’s demise. Though he did land a few right hand body shots early, Watts was in no hurry as this was his first eight rounder. Chudecki was trying to set traps for Watts but Kevin was too sweet on his feet to allow that to happen and had no trouble avoiding whatever Chudecki was tryng to do. All hell broke loose in the fifth round for Michael as he was rocked by a hard left hook from Watts that drove him to the ropes. Wasting no time, the now aggressive Watts was on his prey like funk on a skunk, giving him no way out. A nice right-left-right set from Watts deposited Michael on his rump and it was time to get Kevin’s robe ready. A nasty cut over the left eye of Chudecki didn’t make his life any easier, either.
To his credit, Chudecki made it to his feet and lied to the ref, saying he was ready to go on. Watts unleashed his full wrath on Michael who was pretty much out on his feet, prompting the ref to do the right thing and rescue his ass. Hopefully we’ll be seeing more of the young unbeaten Watts back on PBC future telecasts, it took them a while but I think they got Kevin’s memo last night. Byron Martinez is doing a good job guiding Watts’ pro career (he also trains Kevin’s twin, Tevin). He was assisted in the corner by Herve Estrada who doubles as matchmaker, promoter, etc. the guy has too many titles to mention.
Complete coverage will be tomorrow!
