Just a minute for Butler

PHNOM PENH - American Clayton Butler

provided an impressive performance Sunday at CTN, marking his

professional debut with a crisp first round knockout against Cambodian

Di Samrith. The minute-long bout, sanctioned at the weight of 80

kilograms, saw a game Butler plunging straight in with flurries of

punches, hoping to hurt his more experienced opponent early on.  A

heavier Di Samrith attempted to counter with low kicks, but a flush

right hand from Butler precluded any resistance, leaving the floored

and visibly bewildered native unable to beat the count.  Butler is

trained by Paddy Carson of Angkor Gym, Phnom Penh.
