North Texas Fisticuffs Boxing Rookie of the Year: Cedar Hill’s Alex Clarkson
Clarkson and his team are finding it increasingly difficult to find opponents willing to step into the ring to actually face him.
As 2011 comes to an end, it's time to look back and recognize the outstanding achievements of some of our North Texas fighters. Over the next couple of days, we at North Texas Fisticuffs will roll out our annual award winners. This year's first category: Boxing Rookie of the Year.
Local boxing fans who follow the amateur circuit knew that Cedar Hill’s Alex Clarkson was destined to shine as a professional boxer. Blending an uncanny pairing of speed and power, Clarkson has managed to replicate the buzz he enjoyed as an amateur with two jaw-dropping performances as a professional. In fact, despite having a record of 2-0, Clarkson and his team are finding it increasingly difficult to find opponents willing to step into the ring to actually face him.
Of course, who could really blame them, seeing as anyone brave enough to step up and fight him is in for a tough outing. Hopefully Clarkson will continue his unblemished record in the upcoming year. If you’re a boxing fan who hasn’t witnessed “The Main Event,” well, you need to make it a point to see this dynamic talent in person.
