Gassiev’s failed rival knocked out Vykhrist’s victim


Parx Casino, Bensalem, Pennsylvania, USA.
In the main fight of the evening in the heavyweight limit (over 90.7 kg), the Americans met – the failed opponent of the ex-world champion Murat Gassiev, gatekeeper Joey Daveiko (22-10-4, 13 KOs) and the journiman who lost to prospect Viktor Vykhrist
Mike Marshall (6-4-1, 4 KOs). The expected victory was celebrated by Daveiko.

The favorite quickly found holes in the underdog’s defense. Left hooks worked especially well. In the 2nd three-minute period, Daveiko dropped Marshall with a short left hook, but he managed to get to his feet and continued the fight.

In the last seconds of the 4th round, the favorite again had an accurate left hook. The underdog was in the second knockdown. This time he was visibly shaken and the referee stopped the bout (even though Marshall got to his feet and was even ready to continue).

Dawejko TKO 4.
