“Iron Puki” beat the Ukrainian. The European title was at stake


Stadthalle, Falkensee, Germany. In the cruiserweight limit (up to 90.7 kg), Bosnian Edin Puhalo (22-1, 21 KOs) beat Ukrainian gatekeeper Roman Golovashchenko (21-6, 19 KOs). Local media claim that the vacant WBA European title was at stake.

The fight ended so plainly and at the beginning. The underdog capitulated after the end of the 2nd round – he says there are some problems with his shoulder. To celebrate, “Iron Pooky”, and in his native Bosnia he is usually called only that way, he even promised to give the Ukrainian revenge (if he wants to).

Hala MOSiR, Ruda Slaska, Poland. As part of the evening, the local heavyweight prospect (over 90.7 kg)
Damian Knyba (9-0, 5 KOs) passed the Ukrainian journeyman Konstantin Dovbyshchenko (9-11-1, 6 KOs) not without problems.

Knyba started the fight well, but by the equator he got tired and slowed down. The fight went the whole distance, turned out to be competitive and not very spectacular. To be honest, everything was much more like friendly sparring.

The judges unanimously gave the victory to the local fighter: 78-74, 79-73 and 77-75.
