Anthony Direlle Continues Serial TKOs

It was a matter of time before Alfreda Contreras would have hit the deck for the 10 count. Direlle's from Flint, Michigan and is not as well known as bro Andre Direlle but he's a hard hitter and 18 people retired from the ring against Direlle with only one decision and that one, unamimous.

Direlle is also notable because he returned to boxing after a long battle with cancer. He was out of the ring from 2006 to 2008 when he was cleared by his doctors to return to the sport.

Contreras was tough and had game during his match with Direlle on Friday Night Fights. Direlle opened up early with hard shots. Contreras has some moves but he's not a hard puncher and Direlle posted up and blasted back confidently. The referee wisely stopped it in seven.
