Tyrel Richards of Southside Boxing Club wasted little time asserting himself on the road in Pittsburgh this past Saturday afternoon outside at Carmody's Bar and Grill.
The 15-year-old Richards scored a second-round TKO victory over Maliki Mish of Pittsburgh as the referee was forced to put a halt to the action.
With the victory, Richards improved his record to 5-0.
Though he still has some work to do as far as the basics, his trainer Vinny O'Neill still see's so much upside in his young fighter.
"The one thing Tyrel does great is he fights", said O'Neill. "He goes forwards, he retaliates, and if gets punched twice he is going to punch you back four times". "He's wild but we are working on that".
Richards will be back in action on August 31 at the Metroplex in Liberty Township on Jack Loew's Southside Boxing Club amateur show.
Joining Richards on the card will be Ursuline High School sophomore Jacorian Dent who suffered a controversial decision loss to Michael Carmody in the 106-pound division in Pittsburgh on Saturday.
Dent will have a chance for his revenge on the 30th as he will rematch Carmody.
