Mor Oknin Wins Debut

Decorated amateur Mor Oknin won his professional debut against Angel Campoy at Cancha Municipal in Navojoa, Sinoloa, Mexico this past weekend. Oknin won by way of first round technical knockout.

The bout was sloppy thanks to Campoy's awkward rushes forward. Oknin complained of a head clash at one point, and the referee granted him some time to recover. While the Israeli showed a good jab and left hook, the Navojoa native had trouble connecting.

The pace was frenetic when Campoy launched a right hand. Oknin must have a left arm made of steel because Campoy seemed to badly injure his wrist in the exchange. He turned his back and waved his hand. The referee should have stopped the fight, but instead took Campoy over to the doctor who after a thorough examination advised the referee to call a halt to the bout. Oknin was awarded the victory.
