Fresh off his second round knock out of Alan Zavala, Leon "Lethal" Lawson III is now ranked 50th in the world, and he's only 20 years old.  

Leon is now sitting on an impressive record of 12-0 in his professional career. It's only been a year since we last talked to Leon and he's already got 12 wins with 5 knockouts! And all of this at the age of 20 years old, Leon is slowly shaping up to be one of the greatest fighters to come outta Flint. And right along with him is Claressa Shields who has a fight coming up here in Flint October 5th at the Dort Federal Event Center against Ivana Habazin. Think about that, at the moment we have two undefeated pro boxers coming outta Flint. That just doesn't happen!

I'm starting to feel like Flint might be the best breeding ground for world-class boxing talent. From the amazing Dirrell brothers to someone that might be considered the greatest athlete of all time Claressa Shields, Flint has an amazing boxing history. Expect to see Lethal Leon Lawson's name etched into history. I have a feeling this kid will be a world champion in his future.
