We’re not gonna lie to you: We didn’t go out searching for 12 drummers drumming or 10 lords a leaping, let alone six geese a laying. (Although if anyone knows where to find eight maids a milking, please give us a shout.)
Still, this being the holiday season, we here at Premier Boxing Champions wanted to give fight fans a little token of our appreciation. So we hunkered down in our video library, reviewed the 44 PBC fight cards that have been staged since our March 7 debut and cobbled together a full fight’s worth of footage.
Starting with our favorite Round 1 of the year on up to Round 12, the 12 Rounds of Christmas (get it?) features 36 minutes of toe-to-toe action, devastating punches and incredible displays of sheer will and determination, all delivered at PremierBoxingChampions.com in three-minute chunks each day through December 25.
From everyone at PBC, thanks for jumping in the ring with us during our inaugural year. Here’s wishing you and yours a knockout of a holiday season!
(P.S. Re-gifting is highly encouraged—share the 12 Rounds of Christmas series or let us know what your favorite rounds were using the hashtag #PBC12Rounds.)
Round 1: Edwin Rodriguez vs. Michael Seals, November 13, Biloxi, Mississippi
Some fights this year began with the typical slow, feeling-out process. Others began with a bang—or in the case of this showdown between 175-pound bombers Edwin Rodriguez and Michael Seals, a BIG bang.
Just 35 seconds after the opening bell, Rodriguez dropped Seals with a vicious left uppercut. Seals then raised his opponent’s knockdown with two of his own, the second coming just before the end of the round.
Looking like he was out on his feet, Rodriguez was truly saved by the bell in the first: He went on to gain a dramatic third-round TKO in a Fight of the Year candidate.
