On Thursday, a twenty-year-old American earned a first-round knockout and continued his ascent as one of boxing’s rising stars.
Sr. stated that he took Jr. to boxing clubs in Texas with him, constructed him an enclosed enclosure while he worked out, and as soon as Jr. was old enough to walk out of the pen, he began hitting the bags himself.
It appears that Schofield was predestined to battle.
With nine knockouts in 11 victories prior to a midweek show at Fantasy Springs Casino in Indio, California, he was given the green light by Golden Boy Promotions, whose organizers placed him in the main event.
Daniel Rosas, a 33-year-old Mexican with 28 bouts under his belt, was meant to be Schofield’s toughest boxing test to yet, but he breezed through him with a thundering stoppage in just 97 seconds.
Early on, Schofield’s strength was evident as he pursued Rosas around the ring with clubbing blows.
It appeared inevitable that one or more of those punches would cause a problem.
And, as expected, a left hook to the jaw knocked Rosas to the ground, where he rolled around until the referee stopped the fight.
It was finished.

Schofield stated in a statement issued to Insider following his 12th win in his undefeated professional career, “I manifested this knockout, and I feel so wonderful right now.”
Significant Golden Boy influence was present at the event, with partner Bernard Hopkins offering analysis and business CEO Oscar de la Hoya present backstage.
Thursday, Schofield had to pinch himself to assure that he was experiencing reality.
When Oscar entered his changing room, he nearly suffered a heart attack. “I thought, Damn, this is genuine.
“I am content and proud of myself and my team. It’s a dream realized. I honestly want to cry, but I am making an effort not to. Everyone in my division, please!”
Saturday, October 29th, Golden Boy returns with another Southern California boxing event.
Jo Jo Diaz and William Zepeda engage in the main event at the Pechanga Arena in San Diego.
