100% knockout ratio maintained – Tinker takes out Cintron in Boston

Matthew Tinker maintained his 100 percent knockout ratio with victory in Boston on Saturday evening.

The Scarborough-born Limerick man was taken into the second round for the first time in his career, but got the job inside the distance nonetheless.

The former St Francis amateur made the extremely overmatched Jesus Cintron his fourth pro victim on a busy Boxing Promotions card.

Tinker’s 31-year-old opponent did manage to make it into the second stanza, but was outclassed throughout the fight and all but called it a day 1:52 into that round.

The National Elite finalist secured another stoppage win as a result and will be hoping for a stiffer test next time out than the beer-bellied Cintron who, to his credit, went out swinging.

At 29, the New York-based fighter will be looking to be moved fast. In fairness having four fights since November is impressive, particularly considering the majority of this year has been pandemic ruined.

However, to move up the ladder and toward title fights Tinker will be looking for more notable names.

The win see’s Tinker improve to 4-0 while Cintron slips to 1-15-2.
