Fall Brawl IV Results - Wonderboy Stuns Crowd in "Photo" Finish

After seven exciting kickboxing battles had been completed, the capacity crowd at the Simpsonville Activity Center was on its feet for the opening bell of the headline match. Stephen "Wonderboy" Thompson and Jason "Sledgehammer" Reeves came out, touched gloves, exchanged flurries, and got to business - for all of sixty seconds. Just one minute into the first round, Wonderboy was standing and Reeves was on his knees. The crowd was stunned and bewildered. Many, including the fight doctors, couldn't understand why Reeves would not get up. The referee called the fight and then officials, spectators, and the fighters themselves watched the fight on a replay monitor to see what had happened. Only when watching the fight on the monitors could everyone clearly see the lightning fast hard right hand that Stephen had thrown to Reeve's temple. That single punch put Reeve's on the canvas and left Wonderboy extending his professional kickboxing record to 2-0, all wins by knockout.
