PASAY--Kwon Won-Il silenced the Mall of Asia Arena on Friday night when he knocked out Eric Kelly in the last preliminary fight of One: Roots of Honor.

Kwon connected on a right hook that sent Kelly down the canvas, and after some more strikes, the referee called it a fight in just 19 seconds.

Kelly has now dropped his last six fights, but none could be more saddening than this knockout defeat.
