New, 4 comments

Congratulations go out to South Carolina light heavyweight Tomar "T-Bo" Washington, who won his fight this Saturday night on the "Vale Tudo Championships: Brazil vs. USA" card  in Manaus, Brazil by second round TKO. Tomar (32-years-old) was Team USA's representative at 205 pounds. This win moves Tomar's pro record to 4-0 with three wins coming by way of knockout. Look for Washington to be back in action this summer on a Carolina Fight Promotions event.

Congratulations also go out to his teammates. South Carolina middleweight Nissen Osterneck posted a win via first round knockout, moving his professional record to 7-3. And heavyweight fighter Steven "The Panda" Banks scored a 2nd round knockout to move his professional record to 6-3. Banks opened up a 4 inch gash on his opponent's shin, prompting the doctor to call a halt to the contest with his opponent in serious pain.
