Fighters have different reactions to stepping in the squared circle. Some are overwhelmed by the experience, stress and pressure causes a sense of panic that disrupts their skills and timing. Others are too passive, they fail to rise to the occasion and have a performance that resembles a sparring match. Then there are those who relish the moment. They fight boldly and confidently assert themselves, they channel their nervous energy into a focused concentrated attack. Brandon falls into the latter category.
Sporting a pair of Captain America socks, complete with dual foam wings, he marched into the ring and immediately took control of the bout. Swarming his opponent with flurries of punches and relentless pressure the referee was forced to give his opponent multiple standing 8 counts. Brandon then began stalking his opponent making him flinch and over react with well timed fakes and feints, creating openings for power shots. Following the advice of veteran trainer Derrick Ohlhoff he continued his assault until the referee was forced to call a halt to the contest awarding Brandon the TKO victory.
