Rob Brant Professional career:
Brant turned professional in June 2012, beginning his career with a 2nd-round TKO win over journeyman Cheyenne Ziegler. By October 2015, Brant’s record was 17-0 when he first headlined a nationally televised card, defeating Louis Rose of Lynwood, California, then 13-2-1, by majority decision in a closely contested ten-round bout.
On January 22, 2016, Brant fought in the main event of a Showtime-televised card, defeating 15-3-1 Decarlo Perez by knockout in round 4. The result was widely publicized, with commentators praising Brant as “outstanding,” “a skilled boxer,” and displaying “crushing power.” Dan Rafael of ESPN praised Brant for his “Titanic right hand…that annihilated Perez.
“Brant’s knockout of Perez was also featured on that evening’s edition of SportsCenter’s Top 10 and later was listed as number 6 on ESPN’s 2016 Knockouts of the Year. The win gave Brant a 19-0 record with 12 wins by knockout. On April 15, 2016, Brant improved to 20-0 with a knockout of Delray Raines in a fight that lasted just 55 seconds. Brant earned another early-round knockout on August 5, making quick work of Chris Fitzpatrick. ESPN named Brant one of its Top 20 Rising Stars of professional boxing in an article published on December 29, 2016. [Cradit…..Wikipedia]
