Joey Abell Disposes of Billy Willis in 3

Heavyweight Joey Abell ran his current winning streak to four, TKOing Houston’s Billy “The Kid” Willis in the third round on Friday night.  The tough Texan had hoped to stun Abell with a counter and then flurry while Abell reeled, but the Coon Rapids knockout artist showed toughness and more technical polish than usual while rocking Willis in the first and knocking him down in the third.  Referee Blair Talmadge stopped the fight in the third round when Willis rose from a knockdown but showed a limited ability to defend himself.

Abell’s performance prompted a favorable review by Bernard Fernandez of the Philadelphia Daily News.   Read it here: http://www.philly.com/philly/hp/sports/20090516_Abell_uses_expanded_repertoire_to_halt_Willis.html
