Heavyweight prospect Kristian Prenga (10-1, 10 KOs) of Albania returned to the ring with a first round knockout of local veteran Samuel Miller (34-24, 30 KOs) of Colombia. It was the first fight for Prenga since 2018. His corner was headed by his trainer and former amateur standout Don Somerville. Prenga showed no signs of ring rust immediately establishing his physical dominance from the opening bell. A very hard straight right hand delivered by Prenga sent Miller crashing to the canvas where he was counted out. The official time was 1:35 of round one.

The bout took place Saturday morning at the Polideportivo Luis Patron Tolu, Sucre, Colombia where there were Prenga supporters who made the trip to support him.

Prenga maintains his 100% KO winning percentage.  His one disputed decision loss versus the hometown fighter that he avenged by knockout. The imposing 6’5 chiseled Prenga who is promoted by Lee Baxter looks to be one to watch for the near future.

  • Hard to believe that Samuel Miller is still at it, and at Heavyweight no less. I remember fight around Middleweight on ESPN more than a decade ago.

    • Yep! Just coming to say the exact same thing. That same Samuel Miller is still at it. Weighed in at 224 for this fight, was 178 in January.

      • A 46 pound weight gain in 6 months?? I thought only Duran could gain that much weight that quickly , but he could also get it back off before fight time. Not Sammy Miller apparently. He probably told the public that the weight gain was due to strength training in the lead-up to this fight.

        • I’m thinking that maybe he weighed in with some type of uniform on now – because if you look back at his record, he had a fight on Dec. 22, 2018 at 172 and then on Jan. 17 2019 he was 222. 50lbs in less than four weeks?!
