Pabon makes quick work out of Santos

Jesus Pabon of Puerto Rico put Americo Santos of Garland, Texas, down twice en route to a first-round knockout Friday in Palm Bay, Fla. The official end came at 2:45.

Pabon (17-1, 11 knockouts) has won eight consecutive fights since his only setback, a second-round KO against Luis Hernandez in 2007.

Santos (26-4-1, 22 KOs) was once a capable boxer but hadn’t fought in more than three years.
