Default Lenny Zappa knocked down twice last night

But then won by tko in round 2 against Dulog, i didn't see the fight or anything but i am wondering what shots put him down and how bad he was hurt etc, anyone have anymore info ? Also it sucks they don't put him on Fox sports fight nights, a commonwealth medalists and no one gets to see him fight, yet on fox we mainly get to see ..going no where v never has been never will be

Would be a shame if he turned out to be a bit chinny, because he looked to be a top prospect. Can certainly punch. Maybe he just got too eager and over confident. Lets hope so. Would be interested to hear also from anyone who saw the fight.

Sometimes it can be a blessing in disguise, realising you arent unstoppable early on will make him focus just as much on defense instead of just offense in training, that way he will have the full package when he steps up and not get brutally put down like what happened to Vic.

Good post. Totally agree. Especially when you are a puncher, it is very easy to believe your own hype and stop boxing properly. Have only seen the one fight from Zeppa, but he certainly looked the goods. Hopefully it was a learning experience. It is frustrating that they aren't showing him on fox.

When i first put fox on in the late 90's they had live boxing from the USA on both fox sports channels at the same time, i use to complain thinking this sucks i have to keep flicking from one channel to the next to see whats going on, now we get sweet **** all from overseas untill 3 months after the fight when we have read all about it before hand. God bless *******

Hey hey hey, easy there bro!! Solak does suck thats for sure, but to write off all kickboxers is wrong.

It would be better if they let everyone use elbows, but then most fighters would quit due to nasty cuts.

Is Lenny chinny?...lets remember that he got dropped twice by a fighter who is essentially a featherweight.

I hasten to think what happens when he comes up against a lightweight who can punch.
