Kavaliauskas “broke the bones” of Fox, but he survived: video


Dignity Health Sports Park, Carson, California, USA. In the welterweight limit (up to 66.7 kg), ex-champion for the championship belt Egidijus “Bonebreaker” Kavaliauskas (23-2-1, 18 KOs) from Lithuania confidently beat the uncomfortable and long American southpaw Michael “Professor” Fox (22-4 , 5 KOs).

The long left-handed underdog immediately began to play around the perimeter of the ring, confusing him by constantly changing the direction of movement, a lot of jabs. Kavaliauskas cut off the corners of the ring well for him, several times he managed to pinch him against the ropes. Shocked in the 2nd round – Fox had to hide in the clinch.

In the 3rd three-minute period, “Bone Breaker” from Lithuania again shocked the American, after which he immediately rushed to finish off – he recorded two knockdowns in his asset, but still did not finish it.
