CHRIS ROMULO: WKA PROFESSIONAL SUPER MIDDLEWEIGHT NORTH AMERICAN CHAMPION!
MAY 14, 2010 CHRIS "MR CLASSIC" ROMULO DEFEATS SEAN HINDS AT THE FRIDAY NIGHT FIGHTS SERIES HELD AT THE LEXINGTON ARMORY, NYC
From the opening bell, Romulo changed up his rhythm, coming out aggressive and setting the pace for the remainder of the fight. Hinds attempted to impose his will on Romulo, but good defense and strong countering attacks slowed down Hind's game plan significantly. As the fight went on, Romulo proved his skill by utilizing his weapons: powerful jab hook combinations, left leg body kicks, and acrobatic sweeps.
Many had Romulo pegged as the underdog in this fight, but as each round progressed, CROM displayed with skill, sharp technique, and a good game plan, he was the better man on this night.
Romulo earned bragging rights for NYC along with the title of WKA Professional Super Middleweight North American Champion.
