NASSAU, BAHAMAS – Lightweight Lester Brown picked up his fourth win as a professional boxer on Wednesday night in Pensacola, Florida against American Alvin Brown.
Brown won by unanimous decision, controlling the fight the majority of the way. Despite the fact that the match in Pensacola was his first in over a year, Brown said he’s looking forward to an active 2019 under the Roy Jones Jr. promotional banner.
“My trainers and my promoters wanted this fight to help me shake off some ring rust after a long layoff. But it’s only up from here now,” Brown said in an interview with Eyewitness Sports.
“I should have another fight at the end of the month or early April. It was a pretty easy fight, so, I was able to outbox him for the most part.
“I battled a bit of a rib injury in the ring, so, I couldn’t really hit him as hard as I wanted to. But I didn’t feel threatened at any point in the fight.”
Wednesday’s fight was Brown’s first under hall of fame boxer Roy Jones Jr. Last year, Brown signed a multi-year deal with a minimum of four fights each year.
