Oscar De La Hoya has been quickly won over by 21-year-old super-lightweight prospect Daniel Luna.
Luna, who is signed to De La Hoya’s promotional company Golden Boy Promotions, is just 2-0 (2 KOs).
In his last fight though, Luna scored a knockout that any established professional would be proud of.
Admittedly he was up against limited opposition as he took on Jonathan Teofilo who had just one previous fight which ended in a draw.
Regardless, Luna dispatched of him in fine fashion.
Teofilo launched a relentless assault, but was knocked cold by a single left hook.
He faceplanted to the canvas and Luna won by KO.
De La Hoya posted the clip on Saturday and captioned it: “Amazing KO by Golden Boy fighter Daniel Luna.
“Check him out on September 7.”
Indeed, Luna will have his third pro fight this coming Thursday in California.
He will be facing 0-2 journeyman Alexander Gutierrez.
Luna will be looking to extend his unbeaten record to 3-0 (3 KOs).
