Louisville boxer Carlos Dixon won in his professional boxing debut on Saturday night in his hometown.

Dixon won by knockout 31 seconds into his lightweight bout against Indianapolis’ Deangelo Huggins.

The fight was part of Evander Holyfield’s “Tribute to Ali” boxing event, which was the inaugural boxing event for Real Deal Sports & Entertainment.

Dixon stopped by Sports Night on Monday along with his father, TKO Boxing owner James Dixon. They spoke with Andrew Chernoff about Saturday night’s fight:
