A crazy knockout makes even the winner scared!
The spinning hook kick he landed in the dying seconds of the first round was so vicious, it made everyone in the hall but medics freeze – even Dana White who’s seen a lot throughout his career confessed later it was “one of the nastiest knockouts I’ve ever seen”. And you just have to look at Hall’s face to realize that he was not at all happy with his win. It seemed that you could hear a common sigh of relief when, six minutes later, Adam Cella first managed to sit on the stool and then stood up on his shaky feet. Fortunately, Cella had no serious injury and today he goes on fighting, his record being 6-3.
Actually, Cella was a co-author of Hall’s win as he kept his right hand guard rather low. Finally it served him bad. “That’s my favorite technique. It’s a little bit of an unorthodox move. If you have good speed and good whip, you can catch someone, and it’s really deadly. I love to use that technique, and just from being in the ring with him, I’d seen how he would drop his hand a little bit. I had the chance and I capitalized on it and I took it”, Hall said in his interview to “Yahoo Sports”.
As this was Hall’s second pro fight, he quickly gained a reputation of a real beast because both his opponents had to go to the hospital after the bouts. Adam Cella was the second, while the first Hall’s victim was Andy Enz – Hall broke his arm with a kick in the qualifying fight.
