Fleischer Wins Debut

Dustin "White Tiger" Fleischer won his professional debut against Frank Jordan by second round TKO in the Madison Square Garden Theater in New York, New York earlier this month. Fleischer, a noted amateur and descendant of Holocaust survivors, showed fast hands in notching his first victory.

Jordan, a winless fighter who was outweighed by five pounds, tried to be aggressive early. Fleischer effectively landed counter overhand rights and counter straight rights, which quickly forced Jordan to bottle up his offense. In fact, when it was all said and done, Fleischer had landed more punches (38) than Jordan had thrown (35) during the bout.

Fleischer loaded up on virtually every punch and let out a bark each time he ripped Jordan with a shot. Dustin moved well in the pocket and added mean-spirited body punches in the second round to his offensive arsenal. After a left hook to the body a minute into that round, Jordan finally began backing up. Jordan's retreat signaled the end of his chances to survive. Thirty seconds later, referee Shada Murdaugh stopped the fight after a series of Tiger body punches.

Fleischer, a New Jersey resident who weighed in at 142.4 pounds for the contest, is now 1-0 with one knockout. Jordan falls to 0-3 and was stopped for the third time in his career.
