Last Friday, Canadian boxers Mladen Miljas and Dillon Carman clashed for the country’s heavyweight title. It was a fight that certainly didn’t lack excitement for the four minutes and twenty-one seconds the contest lasted, and fans were treated to a rare simultaneous knockdown.
Two minutes into the opening round, Miljas and Carman both threw left hooks, and down to the canvas they went. The referee went back-and-forth counting in front of the two fighters before they resumed action. In round two, Miljas (8-0, 8 KOs) wiped out the veteran Carman (12-3, 11 KOs) and forced the referee to intervene. The 25-year-old Miljas can now call himself Canada’s best heavyweight… not that it’s meant much in the world boxing scene in recent years, but it’s still an accomplishment nevertheless!
