Sands moves to 9-0

Heavyweight boxer Amron Sands continued his unbeaten streak over the weekend, moving to 9-0 overall after knocking out Thomas Hawkins.

The match against Hawkins was Sands’ first under Dever Sports Management. Sands, who has won his last eight fights by knockout, said that he took his preparation to a new level getting ready for the Hawkins match.

“I think out of my eight fights, this is the best shape that I’ve been in,” Sands said. “My sparring was there, my training was there. Everything was in place for me to put on a great showing.”

In Sands’ last fight on February 16 at the St Petersburg Coliseum in St Petersburg, Florida, Sands won by a TKO over Hector Hodge.

Last year, Sands went a perfect 5-0, picking up wins over Kendrick Houston, Darrell Parker, Jerry ‘Big Daddy’ Butler,  Rodriquez Cade and Francois Russell.

Sands also had an extensive career as an amateur with a record of 40-3.
