Ukrainian heavyweight Viktor Vykhryst (11-1, 7 KOs) explained the reason for the early defeat from Cuban Lennier Pero (9-0, 6 KOs) as part of the boxing evening held on February 12 in San Antonio (USA).
Recall that in the course of the fight, namely in the eighth round, Vykhryst capitulated on his feet, refusing to continue.
“After the sixth round, my ribs began to hurt, but I decided to continue the fight,” Victor said. – The pain intensified and did not allow me to box at full strength. I knew that I was winning and in control of the fight, but after a missed punch in the eighth round, the pain became so unbearable that I could no longer move. I won on points, but the injury brought victory to the opponent.”
