Last Saturday night, Kenny Craven (24-14, 22 KO’s), Ellisville, MS, stood toe-to-toe with Clifford “The Black Rhino” Etienne (29-2-2, 20 KO’s) at Louisville Gardens, Louisville, KY. Cravens pounded Etienne and dropped him in round one. In round two Cravens was cut over his left eye and was unable continue. The fight was called at 1:30 of round 2.
