A huge rematch from one of the best Heavyweight bouts from last year, and this time Hesdy Gerges will be defending his It’s Showtime Heavyweight Championship against Daniel Ghita. This is one of the better match ups currently at Heavyweight between two fighters who have been on the way up, both with some hiccups as hey move up the ranks. The last fight was a tough three-round bout, this time with five rounds it will be interesting to see what they come up with.
Gerges starts off trying to keep the distance with a body kick while keeping Ghita’s leg kicks in check, but that can’t last that long. Both men in tremendous shape. Ghita has Gerges in the corenr and lands a huge right that wobbles Gerges, but Gerges somehow recovers! They have been in the same corner the whole round, both men being very patient and just looking for the right opening. Ghita finally finding some luck with the leg kick and is following up with his hands.
Out of nowhere, Daniel Ghita lands an absolutely incredible left hook that puts Gerges down and OUT! Ghita was in incredible shape and has vastly improved his hands and his patience. Masterful performance by Ghita.
Daniel Ghita wins R1 via KO.
