Mario Preskar Wins in 37 seconds at Madison Square Garden

 



Last night in Madison Square Garden after six hours of
boxing, ten bouts which included four world championship
fights, the Ricardo Mayorga vs. Felix Trinidad “Back with a
Vengeance” main event produced enough adrenaline to lift
the 17,046 fans in attendance to their feet, grossed the
third largest gate in Madison Square Garden history, with
$4.65 million, and most certainly is a candidate for the
celebrated “Fight of the Year.”

In the opening bout of the evening, Croatian heavyweight
prospect Mario Preskar (212 lbs.) from Zagreb knocked out
Danny Weyland (210 lbs.) in 37 seconds of the first round.
Preskar (5-0-1, 3 KO’s) landed a left hook to Weylands jaw
and the Arkansas native went down and remained on the
canvas for the remainder of referee Eddie Cotton’s
ten-count.

Preskar next fight is in Tampa, Florida on Friday, October
22 then again in Madison Square Garden on Saturday,
November 13, 2004 in a "Struggle for Supremacy" evening
that will feature at least 8 Heavyweight fights including:
John Ruiz WBA Champion, Andrew Golota, Chris Byrd IBF
Champion, Jameel McCline, Four-Time Heavyweight World
Champion Evander Holyfield, Larry Donald, Kali Meehan,
former WBC and IBF Champion Hasim Rahman, former WBC
Heavyweight Champion Oliver McCall, Mario Preskar and
others.
