The undercard duel of the big boxing evening from the Matchroom promotion in Tashkent, Uzbekistan has ended.
Heavyweight prospectus, 26-year-old Uzbek Bakhodir Jalolov (7-0-0, 7 KO) met with 30-year-old Latvian Kristaps Zutis (7-1-2, 7 KO).
Competitive confrontation, as expected, did not work out. Zhalolov started slowly, holding the undersized Zutis, who only passively pressed behind the high block and showed with all his looks that he felt comfortable on the front arm, and, towards the end, made several weighty combinations.
In the 2nd round, the favorite finally took the initiative into his own hands and began to drive the opponent around the ring, knocking him down after a minute and a half. Zutis got up, but after a short attack he was knocked down with a right hook. Jalolov TKO 2.
