Slowly but surely; the rise of King Mo

Muhammad Lawal wasted no time racking up his second TKO victory only five short weeks after making his pro debut. “King Mo” finished Fabio Silva in the opening moments of the third round at Sengoku 6 and in turn took another step en route to becoming a top prospect at 205.
