Nelson powers his way to 3-0

Steven So Cold Nelson, Omaha, NE, opened the TopRank TV live steam with an impressive 4th rd TKO as Team Crawford completed the first portion of their goal, the second being of course another big win for our leader, Terence “Bud” Crawford’s HBO PPV Unification bout with fellow champion Victor “The Iceman” Postol.

Nelson looking to impress Top Rank and HBO ringsiders went to work early on Tim Meek, of Texas. Nelson backed up the much taller but slender Meek with a snappy jab followed by punishing right hands to both the body and head.

One of those punishing heads found its home and landed with an echo that had the already few hundred Omaha fans up on their feet and Meek crushing to the canvas. Nelson slipped the jab beautifully and landed the punch high above the head of his opponent causing his equilibrium to momentarily shut down along with his legs appearing to go jelly, while Nelson provided plenty of swag by dropping to a knee and posing while admiring his work.

The second rd saw Nelson stalking his opponent, catching him time after time with sharp and thunderous power punches that although Meek took them better, had him unwilling to engage and dancing away with little for the well sculpted Nelson to worry about. 

The 3rd rd Nelson tried to put Meek away but every time he would hurt Meek, he would be welcomed by a clinch. A nice short right uppercut, left hook and straight right cut and wobbled Meek whom had a look of this is not my night on him. 

Listening to coach Basher Abdullah’s instructions perfectly, Nelson would charge right out  of his corner and pin his opponent along the ropes, only this time demonstrate his speed with 3 and 4 punch flurries. Moments later though, the over hand right would land yet again, drawing oooes and awes from the adrenaline filled crowd whom were craving for the knockout. Just as Nelson was set to swarm over his opponent like a hungry shark in the deep waters, the ringside inspector encouraged by Meek’s corner stepped into the ring and wisely stopped the fight. 

Nelson definitely impressed Top Rank and ringsiders all while building on an already strong faceable as evident from fans ringside who were asking for pictures with man widely known as So Cold. The classy gave back to all his fans for posing for all picture requests while chatting it at with the fans. Nelson improves to 3-0 with all 3 wins by impressive knock out. The tough but limited Meeks drops to 5-3-1.

What’s next? Nelson will appear on B&B’s upcoming Oct 1st Omaha event at the Ralston Arena.

TOGETHER AGAIN

CRAWFORD AND NELSON SET FOR VEGAS

There is a saying not to long ago that stated “ Omaha supports Omaha”. The meaning behind the phrase is the constant resurrection of Nebraska Boxing becoming alive and putting a record number of youth/adults joining several boxing gyms along the way. Two Omaha youngsters growing up, best friends since childhood, both struggling with behaviors in and out of school, made promises to one another that no matter what...that one day they would be reunited and this time the spot light would belong to them.

You see gone are the public record posts, neighborhood complaints and Principal phone calls, those days are the past.....the future is filled with this Saturday's mega HBO PPV event in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Terence “Bud” Crawford 28-0 (20), aka the Pride of Omaha, makes his HBO PPV debut against fellow undefeated Victor “Ice Man” Postol 28-0 (12) of Ukraine, in a scheduled 12 RD Unification showdown. Crawford will put up his WBO Jr Welterweight strap, while Postol's WBC Super Lightweight belt is on the line. Both are ranked as the #1 and #2 140 lb fighters in the World. This truly is the best facing the best.

Fresh off his easy 1st rd knock out over late replacement Ricky Reed 0-2 ,back in May on B&B Boxing Promotions in Omaha, former Army Specialist and veteran, Steven “So Cold” Nelson 2-0 (2), will appear on the same card as his child hood buddy in Crawford. Nelson will face Texas based Tim Meeks 5-2-1 (3) in a 4 RD Light Heavyweight contest.

Nelson was an amazing talent as an amateur and represented Team USA the past few years, nearly making the Olympics on several occasions. Nelson has already made a name for himself by giving excellent work for current P4P champion Andre Ward in camp earlier this year. Just like when his buddy Terence, who landed his big breakthrough while helping Tim Bradley in camp a few years ago.

Meanwhile, Nelson's opponent, Meeks, is no slouch and has won 3 in a row. Nelson has vowed to take on tough challenges and prove to Top Rank and HBO officials that he is definitely worthy of being on this type of big stage. Nelson vs Meeks will be the opening bout. It is very fitting that Nelson will open the show and Crawford will close the show

Can Postol give Crawford his biggest test? Will Postol's height and jab be the difference? Will Crawford's boxing IQ and ability to adapt be the difference? Will Crawford cement his legacy and his critics with an explosive performance?

Those are all questions that fight fans and the boxing world will have to wait and see but for now this story is about childhood adversity, loyalty, friendship, and “Omaha Supporting Omaha”.

Omaha and fight fan's lets make the MGM feel like the Centurylink!!!! Grab your tickets or order it on PPV and celebrate with your friends because the story of Crawford and Nelson is far from being finished.....a matter of fact, this is just the beginning.
