In the furnace of such matchmakers: Mbilli and Sissoko got drunk with opponents


parc des expositions, Nantes, France. In the main event of the show in the super middleweight limit (up to 76.2 kg), the local spectacular avenue Christian Mbilli (23-0, 20 KOs) defeated persistent Vaughn Alexander (17-7-1, 10 KOs) from the USA.

Mbilly relied on body shots as the underdog was hiding behind a high block. Often flew a little lower than expected. Already in the starting round, the fight was suspended – they gave the guest an opportunity to recover from another blow below the waterline.

Alexander’s bet is clear – minimize the number of missed punches, try to catch with a left counterhook. Mbilli controlled the course of the battle, reworked the opponent. He had his good moments, but he is too passive. The fight went the whole distance, but it is unlikely that the underdog will be given more than one round.

This is true. The score of the judges: twice 100-90 and 99-91.

As part of the evening, the vacant title of the silver champion was played WBC welterweight (up to 66.7 kg). Local prospect / Olympic medalist Suleiman Sissoko (16-0, 9 KOs) passed not without problems Thulani Mbenge (19-2, 15 KOs) from South Africa.

The start of the fight was left to the guest, but the favorite managed to adapt to an uncomfortable opponent. Mbenge tried to take quantity, and Sissoko – quality. He is more accurate, but too passive. The African, on the other hand, boxed as if his task was to knock on the favorite’s gloves.

Not a very exciting fight. But that was expected.

The score of the judges: 116-112, 115-113 and 114-114 in favor of the favorite.
