Boxer Deion Pruitt of St. Thomas won his second professional bout Saturday at the Cosmopolitan Premier Lounge in Decatur, Georgia, for the “Sugar Bert Vegas in Atlanta.”

The 25-year-old Pruitt secured the win with a second-round TKO, taking his record to 2-0. His opponent, Randy Mast, fell to 2-3.

The second round opened with Pruitt backing his opponent across the ring, then staggering him three times before dropping him to one knee. The referee let the fight continue but Pruitt made short work of it, backing Mast into a corner and finishing him with a left and a straight right that dropped him to his knee. The referee jumped in, waving his arms and declaring, “Fight’s over.”

“I wish the fight could’ve gone a little bit longer,” Pruitt said. “But I definitely feel I’ve shown improvement from my first fight. And I hope I will be able to show improvement with each fight.”

Pruitt won his professional debut in March, also with a second-round TKO. He is slated for another fight in September and is eager to continue his winning streak.

When asked if he’s ready to secure another TKO, Pruitt said, “No, they’re going to get knocked out cold.”

Pruitt credited a team effort for his success.

“I would like to thank all the sponsors, coaches, family, the I Believe I Can Fly Boxing Program, and the entire Virgin Islands,” Pruitt said.

His sponsors for this fight were Kobaz Enterprises, Wilson Healthcare Consultants, Southland Gaming, and Julius The Chef Jackson.

Information about Pruitt and his upcoming fights are updated on his Instagram page.

Cute as a button. Darling little princess. Please protect them

Make sure they Mask 😷 up.

Loving and trusting someone is such a risk and i don't wish any woman to be in the same shoes as i was sometime back when I caught my husband red-handed with my own best friend in our own bed. I couldn't believe it when I saw it and my heart started beating so fast and felt like my body is shaking then I ran straight to my elder sister's house. I cried so much and my sister left me to cry and told me it would help ease the pain I was feeling. Then she sat me down and asked me if I still love my husband and I told her yes of course, and she told me that we all learn and grow through mistakes and no one is perfect and told me that if I wanted my man back I should fight for him and never trust friends again.My sister told me to contact profisma+27783320386 who had helped her husband with financial issues and told me he will help me bring my man back. It took me weeks to think about it because we come from a strong religious background but things worsened because I could not even concentrate at work and i got fired, and after that, i remembered what my sister had told me about consulting with him. That's when I contacted him and told everything, he listened, and told me that he will solve all my problems in 48 hrs. Since it was my first time doing this, i could not believe his words just like that but i had to wait until the time he had promised. I was asked to buy materials to help me which I did, we begun the prayer and results were delivered in three days. My husband called me and asked me where I was, and he came straight to me and confessed how my best friend seduced him, and he was sorry to fall into her trap and showed me all the messages my best friend was sending to him and promised never to see her again and promised to love me and only me. That evening he took me to a romantic dinner, Since prophet isma helped me, I got a better paying job than the previous one, my husband is back to the old man I used to know and he loves me so much and does everything to see that am happy. Thank you so much prophet, your spells indeed work. If you're going through struggles, you can text him on WhatsApp +27783320386 or call him
