Marcus Browne of Staten Island, who represented the US at the London Olympics, went to 6-0, with a TKO2 win over Robert Hill of Louisiana at the Best Buy Theater in Manhattan on Monday night.
The lefty Browne, aged 22, threw a stiff, straight left in the first and sent Hill to the floor. The ref waved a halt to the light heavyweight contest, put together by promoter Golden Boy, the first of 24 Monday events they're presenting.
Hill looked a bit nervous and hesitant to engage from the get-go and his record went to 1-2.
The loser was looked at by three ring physicians, who quizzed him for a couple minutes after the ending, which came at 59 seconds elapsed. They were satisfied with his responses and allowed him to head back to the dressing room.
