Jesse Walters' professional boxing debut didn't last long Thursday night — he knocked out opponent Mark Slyter in the second round at Myth Live in Maplewood, Minn.
Nicknamed "Primo" and fighting out of his uncle Zach Walters' gym Jungle Boy Boxing, Jesse Walters, 18, is 1-0 as a pro and continues a banner year in which he won his weight class at the Upper Midwest Golden Gloves Tournament of Champions and was also named outstanding boxer for the entire amateur tourney.
Walters fought nearly 70 times as an amateur and amassed a 58-11 record, including competing in seven national tournaments.
Duluth's Danny Huffman, another pro fighter from Jungle Boy Boxing, fought to a four-round draw with this opponent.
