OJ Rose and Callum Izzard both demonstrated incredible chins and big power but it would be Rose that would emerge from this bout victorious. The knockout came in the third round, after an exciting, back-and-forth brawl. It wasn’t the most technical but they were going for broke and kicked off the televised card in entertaining fashion.
Armz Korleone and Master Oogway didn’t last long but it managed to cram several big bombs, three knockdowns and the finish all in the span of two minutes and 45 seconds. Korleone has clearly improved from his last fight, even if he’s still a bit raw and unpolished.
Gabe Silva did exactly what 73% of an online poll thought he’d do—beat Ben “Bane” Davis. The finish came after a pair of knockdowns in the first round with the second one being the fight-ender. Both times, Davis lost his mouthpiece. To Davis’ credit, he seemed very game and wasn’t timid. He advanced, threw punches in volume and managed to catch young Silva a time or two.
Despite an insane size difference, Halal Ham hung in there, never got dropped and threw some heavy shots that landed square on Ashley Rak-Su. That said, it wasn’t enough to win him the fight. From the opening bell, Rak-Su set the pace and maintained it throughout. It was a completely one-sided beatdown. Props to Ham for having one helluva chin.
Faze Temperrr was the better boxer today, as he completely overwhelmed Ginty. The finish would come in the first round after three knockdowns with the third being the fight-ender. Faze looked dominant and was able to maneuver young Ginty just about anywhere he pleased. Ginty needs a lot of work, especially defensively.
Idris Virgo rushed in early, backing Chalmers into a corner, but “Joker” had sound defense and came back with some heat of his own. Both men were able to get clean shots in during the course of the round, but a vicious body shot from Virgo put Chalmers down in the second. Aaron managed to recover enough to make it out of the round, but the third round would see more knockdowns, the last one being the one that would force the referee to wave off the fight.
