Images from Johnny Tocco’s Ringside Gym in Las Vegas, Nev. as another entertaining round of First Friday Exhibition Sparring took place.

The sparring has been taking place since 2014 and there has been some excellent work that has went down. This past Friday, more quality action took place, including seeing super middleweight contender Denis Douglin (20-6, 13 KO’s) in action, as he worked with rising amateur Karam Al Mahseri. National champion Alex “ATG” Thiel was also back in the mix, as well as several other amateurs going at it.

This past weekend, in Flint, Mich., 11-time national champion Leon Lawson III made his pro debut, winning by way of a first-round knockout over Robert Alexander Seyam. The bout took place on the undercard of Anthony Dirrell’s technical-decision victory over Denis Douglin, and Lawson needed just 40 seconds to finish the match, as an excellent counter left hook put Seyam down and out for the count.

Anyone who has followed the Dirrell brothers over the years should definitely pay close attention to young Lawson, as they are cousins, with their grandfather Leon being the original trainer of the fighting brothers from Flint. Lawson is trained by his father Leon II, who has also worked closely with the Dirrells over the years.

Lawson is a special talent himself, as he just recently turned 18 years of age and was the youngest person to win the national golden gloves in 2017. Lawson will be competing in the welterweight class, and he definitely stands out at 6’5″.

No matter what curveballs the sport of boxing throws him, super middleweight contender Denis “Momma’s Boy” Douglin continues to keep high hopes.

The last time we caught Douglin inside of the boxing ring fighting professionally, he was stopped in the tenth round by rising prospect David Benavidez. That bout saw Douglin’s record move to 20-5 with 13 knockouts, yet he is still as upbeat as ever.
