Andre Lambe produced a display of power in his stunning first-round stoppage win over Dajuan Robinson at the Royal Naval Dockyard Shed last night.
Lambe dropped Robinson, a mixed martial artist making his boxing debut, four times in a lopsided fight, eventually forcing referee Anthony Mouchette to stop the fight after two minutes and 50 seconds.
The 26-year-old said many of the combinations that left Robinson in shock were bursts he perfected with his coach Varo Pelon Andrade.
“We practiced the same combinations over and over again, trying to perfect them,” Lambe told Bernews.
“The first combination I landed on him, a straight left-right hand hook, I’ve been training in the gym for weeks.
“That was awesome. He was already dazed when I hit him with the left and would have gone down before I threw the right hook anyway.
“It just shows that my power is increasing. I did a lot of strength training and conditioning with my trainer David Lunn.
“I got a little wild at one point because I couldn’t feel his [Robinson’s] Power. I just wanted to get him out of there.
It was a ruthless performance from the southpaw, who stalked his opponent with menace from the opening bell, uncorking a straight left hand that caught Robinson flush with the chin, stunning the American before landing a right hook to send him off. on the Web.
Showing control and incision, Lambe connected with a pair of vicious right hooks before putting Robinson down with a thumping right hand.
Robinson resorted to retreating to the ropes and hit the canvas for the third time as Lambe found a home with a flashy right hook, a punch that becomes the Bermudian’s signature.
Looking increasingly unsteady on his feet, Robinson retreated into the corner again before a heavy barrage of blows knocked him down for the fourth and final time to hand Lambe their second victory this year.
Lambe, who headlined a fight card for the first time, will return to the ring against Jamaican Toriano Nicholas at home on May 28.
The pair were due to meet in March 2020 before the Covid-19 pandemic halted live sport on the island.
Nicholas, who is 1-1-3, lost his previous outing by technical knockout to Carlos Dixon of the United States in Kingston, Jamaica in July 2019.
“He’s supposed to be a pure boxer,” Lambe added. “This fight was about keeping me active, so I’m ready for that one.
“It’s great to have regular fights. They help me develop my skills and stay engaged. I work on different things every fight, so when I have those big fights, those tough fights, my bases are covered.
