Kenndall Lewis is quickly becoming a household name in the Bryan/College Station area. Lewis, out of Windy Fight Factory, has fought in every Brazos Throwdown to date, which is why he has earned the opportunity to fight for the Valor Fights Welterweight Title on April 21st at Brazos Throwdown IV.
Lewis has reach for days and skillfully uses his height to gain advantage over his opponents. With a 4-1-0 record (and his only loss a split decision), Lewis has finished 3 of his 4 wins within the first round. Lewis considers himself a striker, but has won by submission enough times to prove his all-around skill.
Lewis will face off against Mohamed Benachour on April 21st for the Welterweight Tile belt. This will be Lewis' toughest match to date as Benachour is undefeated at 170 lbs. (with his only loss being a weight class up and against a former collegiate wrestler Jason Allen). Get tickets to see this once in a lifetime fight here.
