In a highly-anticipated match up, former Golden Gloves champions Allan Green knocked out Jaidon Codrington shortly after the opening bell, on 'ShoBox: The New Generation.' The fight was called off 18 seconds into the first round as Codrington, unconscious, fell through the ropes. Codrington remained out on the canvas for roughly three minutes before regaining consciousness, and was taken to Integris Baptist Regional Health Center in Miami, where initial reports indicated that he had suffered a fractured sixth vertebrae. Doctors later retracted that diagnosis, according to promoter Lou Dibella. Codrington was released after neurological tests and CAT scans of the vertebrae came back negative.
Fight was named Ring Magazine Knockout of the Year.
